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

What's everyone cooking this weekend?

For me it's a Big Green weekend poolside with cold beer and copious amounts of meat. Tonight it's wings. Tomorrow Ribs and not pictured Sunday is smoked turkey breast with the best damn marinated carrots on planet earth. Have a great weekend friends.

    I love the key lime pie there. It is awesome

    How do you do your carrots?

    And to answer I am doing a couple Boston butts tonight for pulled pork tomorrow
    Boom

    Doing a butt tonight, see 9.75lb thread. Beer looks refreshing. Think I will go get some.

    Pizza Pie!  -- Saturday night.
    Probably a flanks steak on Sunday.  I've been craving one for a few days now...

    I think I'm gonna go with pizza.  New gasket seems to be impervious to heat so far.

    Rubmyrock (it was weird typing that) I loved your post- sounds like a great weekend!  We got a call from friends last night who live a ways away that they would be in town today and I impulsively invited them over for dinner.  I had to work all day today and just got home 30 minutes ago.  So, last night I pulled some chicken wings out of the freezer and put them in the fridge in a bag or marinade and as soon as I came home today I lit the egg, set it up for indirect raised grid, put the wings on and closed the egg.  Now I am having a brew (Ranger IPA) before I clean up the kitchen and prep the rest of the grub.  The wings were still a bit frosty, the egg is stopping at about 325 wide open (even though I got it up to 600 before I added the set up), and my company will be here in 45 minutes.  With the Big Green Egg, I am so less worried about all this than I used to be with my Brinkman (and Weber before that)!  I guess the IPA  helps with the worry too...

    Haha. I have buddies who love a good IPA. I don't think my taste buds are developed enough to appreciate. I don't like Sierra Nevada either and people seem to love it.
    So I'll assume I'm defective, not everyone else ha

    I just picked up a rack of St. Louis style spare ribs and a bottle of Woodford Reserve. Going to be a good day tomorrow. Bourbon and BBQ, nothing better. Going to do my best to beat the heat.
  • ncbbqncbbq Posts: 257
    I love IPA's too but I know they aren't for everybody so I wouldn't worry too much. They are one of those things that you either love or hate, no real in between.

    That's how you can spot a true egghead........when they already know a week in advance what they will be grilling!  I love it!

    Live from balmy Belmont NC. Here we go gentlemen. With the assistance of my little girl. Pedestrian cold beer tonight matched with the wings. Tomorrow night's poolside menu includes St Louis Ribs paired with Glenfiddich. Sunday smoked turkey, dirty rice and carrots. Even my little girl loves cooking with me!!!!

    Woodford is some of my favorite bourbon. Good stuff.
    Boom
  • ncbbqncbbq Posts: 257
    Having a glass now even though my egging got rained out tonight. I know the egg doesn't mind the rain but the egger wasn't in the mood for it. The Woodford tastes just as good either way.

    I've had my egg less than three weeks now.  So far I've done bone-in chicken breasts, chicken tenders, burgers, rib-eye's, halibut, rock fish, assorted vegetables, and baby backs for the 4th.

    Just threw a couple butts on for my first over night cook.  The egg was rock steady for four hours while doing the ribs, so I expect things to go well.

    My teen age boys think everything tastes better off the egg, and I agree.

    This website is awesome...... Glad to be a part of it.. Tossed a couple cherry chunks on adding to the aroma and wings are half way through a one hour cook. Looking good and I'm on beer number five...

    Hey, smooth sailing now but a huge rookie mistake ruined my gasket. Dripping from the last butt cook on the plate setter took forever to burn off and the top side had black bubbles smoldering. When I tried to flip plate setter it burned my gasket completely into in three places. Live and learn... Lol
  • michigan_jasonmichigan_jason Posts: 1,294
    no one needs one of those anyway... i have been without for a while, doing a low and slow butt tonight gasket-less, we will see exactly how needed one is for sure tonight.

    Rock, enjoy those wings. They look delish. It's great to see your daughter enjoying your cook. That some great bonding. Take it easy.
  • FanOfFanboysFanOfFanboys Posts: 1,593
    I am doing my 2nd low and slow tonight and I lost my gasket after 3rd cook ever. So far not needed. No leaking heat or smoke.
    Boom
  • ncbbqncbbq Posts: 257
    FYI, I already fried my gasket in the 2 months I've had my egg. I emailed the mothership and they sent me a high heat nomex one free of charge. So if you choose not to go without gasket, they will hook you up. I have definitely been pleased with the customer service.

    Enjoy those wings.

    Nothing... :(  Gasket is toast, and I can't get a replacement until Wednesday...

    On the bright side, I still have about eight pounds of Lexington style BBQ from the 4th that I'm still working my way through....
