Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

New EggHead Here....Here's my first two cooks

Hello Everyone,

My name is Eric and I live in beautiful Colorado.

Every year, my Boss has a BBQ at his house. And he stands behind his Traeger. I was very very close to purchasing a Traeger......until someone introduced me to the BGE. And let me tell ya'...I'm glad they did!

I got a brand new, large Egg, a nest, plate setter, pizza stone, and a bag of charcoal out the door for $815 :woohoo:

My first cook was some pork shoulder boneless ribs. They came out OK, I was mainly using them as "practice" to get the hang of regulating temps. I did these at 300* for about two and a half hours.

Tonight I cooked up some meatloaf, and it was pretty good! I'll have to try this one again soon. Did this at 350* indirect for one hour.

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know everyone. B)

    Welcome to the party, Eric! You got a TERRIFIC deal on your Egg! Congrats!

    I have a suggestion for using your platesetter. Line it with foil so the splatters outside the drip pan don't bake on. Or maybe you need a bigger drip pan? Heavy-duty foil can be one of your best friends.

    I never tried meatloaf. If you have a great recipe don't hesitate to post it!

    Looking forward to your next posts.

    You will have to have your boss over for some spatchcock chicken or something. He'll be impressed.

  • Thanks Everyone for the warm welcome!

    Sounds like I better stock up on heavy duty foil. Thanks for the tips!

    I liked the comment about having everyone at my house for the company BBQ. :laugh:

    Hello Cookn Biker...... I'm just a little North of you in Castle Rock. I plan on attending Eggfest, maybe see you there...?

    My main hobby is Jeepin' , I drive a 01 Jeep Cherokee XJ that I'm building to take me anywhere there may be a road in Colorado. I've lived here my whole life, but still haven't seen it all.

    The BGE is catching up close to the Jeep though :P
