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!

 i live in ct and after the long cold & record snow fall winter i could not get to my grill on the deck do to it having 3 feet of snow on it, my wife was broiling stakes in the oven. when the deck finally melted and was able to get to my grill we started to use it. after the 2nd stake i told her to get the same stakes she cooked all winter in the oven she said the that these are the same stakes. we both agreed the had no taste or flavor. by the way the grill we were using i bought for her for our anniversary 8 years ago it is a viking 48 nice s.s in a cart if i remember i think i paid $4800.00 for it. we were talking to our neighbors about this problem he suggested a charcoal grill. it just happened my wife won a little habichi  a few years ago and was unopened on a shelf in the garage. i went out and got it, we put it together and the next day went to home depot & bought kingsford match light. that night we grilled stakes that tasted like gasoline.but once we got past the gas flavor the stack was better than the ones off the viking. so i went one step farther and bought a little weber charcoal grill at the depot think it was $30.00, got the hang of it not getting the gas flavor on my stakes. early summer came and was driving and saw a big green egg sing some were and was wondering what the heck is a big green egg? i googled it and found out. will after reading about it bought one brought it home my wife & neighbors looked it it and said what the hell is that? to be exact my wife said it looks like the thing in star wars rtd2. well i fired it up,we had stakes we could not believe what we were eating. after cooking on it a week straight i was so impressed i contacted the distributer and had to start selling them in my store. what a great product.

    Peterp2, welcome to the forum and welcome to the cult! Thanks for sharing your story. Stick around and keep posting, lot of good people and knowledge around here. There are a few shop owners on here as well. I'm sure it will be a valuable tool for you to gain knowledge and refer your customers too as well.

    Peterp2 as a norm on forums someone other than the owner of a shop shouts the virtues of a dealer.Let your happy customers do it, and they will they will also go the other way if feel slighted. The dealer in Salado sold over 40 yesterday and I can post as I get zero money or product, just an EggHead. Real good of you to post your cooks and if you are putting on an EggFest.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, just added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

    Peterp2: I just bought my egg from you on Saturday.  I thought the story on this thread sounded familiar.  I am a happy customer and would definitely recommend you for an Egg and will send people your way.  My first cook went great.  Best pork tenderloins my wife ever had (I thought I had perfected them on my Weber gas). Now, my problem is: what do I cook next?

    Peterp2: I used an Asian type marinade from a book called "Grilling for dummies".  I cooked it over a platesetter, legs up w/drip pan, at 350 with cherry wood chips until it reached an internal temp of 155 (I use a 10 year old Maverick ET-7).  EddieK76: I made chicken breasts and thighs for my second cook and did pizza for the third!  Pizza was pretty good but the learning curve is high and the next cook should be much better.
