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!

    FTC (foil, towels and a cooler) and you can hold for quite a while.  Yopu may want to remove and toss them back on the BGE for a few minutes just before serving to firm them up.

    I have been known to tent them for 2-3 hours while waiting on other items.  Throw on BGE just before serving for a little warm-up.

    If your oven has a warm setting, you can wrap them in foil and keep them in there.  Regardless of how you keep them warm or even if they cool down,  you can throw them back on the egg before serving like Richard_Fl said. 
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

  • Awesome - thanks for the quick responses!
  • This time of year, the heat is on in the house, I tend to foil and oven (FO?), summer time I stand guard in my favorite lawn chair with the ribs safely FTC'd.
