Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Doing a few racks of babybacks here in a few hours. Was thinking about tossing on a few ABTs. Do they cook well at that low of temps? Don't want my bacon to taste like rubber bands.
Thanks ya'll

  • I'm probably chiming in too late for your cook, but I prefer to cook them at about 250° dome. I use regular (thin) sliced bacon and find that low and slow lets the bacon render and get crispy. Usually takes 1.5 to 2 hours.

    Here's my last ABT cook. Lots of sugar maple for smoke wood and stuffed with cream cheese, minced buckboard bacon, onion soup mix and chiptle powder. Sprinkled the chipotle powder on the bacon, too. Best results, to date. 250° dome indirect for about 2 hours.

    Hope you decided to do them. Should be excellent!

    Those look fantastic. I decided on tater salad and pinto beans to go with the ribs instead of ABTs. But I think I'll fire up some of these badboys tomorrow for game time munchin.

    Thanks, Amaury
  • Thanks, Amaury. They got rave reviews at the poker game I brought them to. Let us know how they come out if you git-r-dun tomorrow.
