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!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

You get one meal to show off your Egg

So you get one meal to show off your Egg. Whether to make a sale or convert someone who doubts the Egg. What meal do you choose and why? It can be the one you make the best or the one where you think the Egg has its greatest impact. Bonus points if you have pictures

    Every time I make Spatchcock Chicken, the guests love it - never had a better chicken. This is sometimes true of Brisket but they aren't as consistent.

    I think chicken wings are great on the egg.. all that yummy crispy skin.  I like to put the buffalo wild wings dry rubs on them.

    One meal, or one item?

    Start off with some apps of charbroiled oysters, turtle eggs and abt's, move onto a grilled ceaser salad, followed by brisket and beans and finish it off with a pineapple upside down cake and a giant peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. You did say one meal. ;)

    At the risk of sounding cliche, I think I would go with pork butt because they always seem to come out great. I do not have the same level of consistency on other things yet as I've only been egging for about 3 months. Plus in NC pork is BBQ.

    . One meal. You get full course, if you want, to make this impression. But has to be all done on egg

    But of course. I forgot a soup. How about a grilled gazpacho soup or a grilled corn chowder to go along with everything else?

    I love bone-in chicken thighs trimmed and marinated in mojo for several hours. Then sprinkle "Shakin' the Tree" on them and set the BGE up raised direct at 400. Toss a nugget or 2 of hickory on there and grill them for about 45 minutes to an hour. PERFECT!

  • Grilled vegetables (baby bella mushrooms, squash, zucchini, red/yellow/green bell peppers, vidalia onions, campari tomatoes) on wire skewers, asparagus, skewered chicken bites and seared rare tuna steaks (~15-20 seconds on each side).  Everyone may know that you can smoke for long periods of time, but not realize the versatility of you being able to grill veggies etc. and then crank it up to 800+ degrees to sear tuna.

    i think the easiest thing for people to compare (from their own experience) is a simple steak.  they've had steak enough to believe that they do it well, and that it is hard to improve.

    then you give them one from a charcoal grill, and their mind is blown. salt and pepper only.

  • Down here it would be brisket. You drop a "this is the best I've ever had" brisket on someone down here, it means something. Plus it's hard to do so most people don't even understand how to do it right.

    I would go with the boneless, skinless chix breasts-no other grill/smoker I know consistently delivers moist and flavorful chix. I will defer to Griffin for his overall menu-quite a banquet...

    Steak. Impossible to get the high heat you get on an egg on almost any other grill. Ose that are used to gassers or even a Weber will be blown away.

  • How about some Pork Filets with grilled vegetable sides....use Jack Daniels Smoke Chips for unbelievable flavor!! Your guests will enjoy them over most Beef Filets!!

    Agreed... Steak would be my second choice. Wings can go sideways fast. Hard to ruin a pork butt

    Never would have guessed it when I purchased my egg, but it's tough to beat stir fry. The stuff they call "Chinese" around my parts is just salt and grease

    Without a doubt, my 18 hour smoked pork butts....every time I cook em, the response has been "that's the best pulled pork I've ever had"
