Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you had a hoppy Easter and are ready to spring into warm weather cooking mode! There’s nothing better than spending time outdoors with the sweet aroma of fresh cooked Ribs. Baseball season is also underway, so it's the perfect time to try out some chicken wing variations! We have Jamaican Jerk, Lemon Pepper, Fired-Up Wings and even a Whiskey Onion and Chicken Steak if wings aren't your thing. Bon appetit!

Just Some Plain Ole Wings

We have been so busy lately with Christmas parties, trips out of town and Christmas shopping that we haven't done ANY Egging since that deep dish/pan pizza back on the 6th! Even when we do have time, we just simply have not had the energy.

Last night, Mrs. G was supposed to have a Girls Night out so I was determined to fix that and grill me up some wings. Wings get bought, rubbed down with some DP Dust and were air drying in the fridge. Get a call from SWMBO that the night out was canceled was canceled. There goes HALF my wings. Oh well, need to eat more rabbit food anyway.

I'll try and rack my brain for something to Egg tonight and I'm gearing up for Egging my first Prime Rib on the Egg for Christmas (and only my 2nd one to cook ever) Just gotta transport my Egg the long 10 miles to my parents house.

Wishing everybody Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukka, Kwanzaa or Festivus or however you roll.  ;)

  • That looks real good Grif!  Where's the rabbit food?  You mean that garnish?  Heh, heh, heh. 

    I have no doubt your prime rib will turn out every bit as great as you dream it could be!  Merry Christmas!

    Looking good Griffin! I've been wondering where you've been. I've been suffering from some of that same busy time of year stuff myself, so I figured I might've just missed one or two of your posts. But I see you are worse off on that front than I've been. One nice thing about the stir-fries I've been doing is they are fairly quick to get together and even quicker to cook.

    I am doing my first PR on the Egg too. I've probably done at least two dozen prime ribs on the grill or smoker, but I'm torn on which recipe to use. I'm tempted to go with my old standby from the Virtual Weber Bullet website, but I'm also looking at recipes tailored a little bit to the Egg. I need to get off my butt and make up my mind soon as the day is fast approaching. Best holiday wishes to you and your family and good luck to both of us on our first PRs on the Egg.

    Yeah...we've kinda been in hiding down here. It'll pick back up after the holidays...after New Years for me.

    I'm sure we'll both do fine on the PR. I'm thinking about a reverse sear on mine, cooking it at either 225 or 250 grate and then searing it at the end at 500-550. I just don't know about time. Heck, at this point, I don't even know how big it is. I gave my mom a length of string that I measured off on the Egg and said "Don't get one bigger than this" Not sure how many people we are feeding. So, at 225 (or 250) about how long per pound (just so I can get it in the ballpark)? I know, temp vs time, just a rough estimate.

    Looks great Griff, as usual.  We have those same Fiesta plates  - you must have excellent taste!

    @Griffin-i do the low&slow prime rib at around 250*F on the dome indirect, and see about 20-25 mins/# til about 125*F in the roast-FWIW-

    @nolaegghead - that is actually a Wal-mart knock off plate. Bought it for under $3 and only bought one just to have some variety in my pictures. ;)

    Thanks @lousubcap

    Took about 25min/pound for me last night for standing rib roast (wasn't prime :( ).

    For a sear, I just hit it with a propane torch.  Fast and easy and great results!

    Like a brisket point - the more fat, the faster it cooks.  Prime, maybe 20 min/lb, around 250-ish.  The big 'ol monster cuts will take longer.  Mine was on the smallish side.

    When I first saw the post, before any responses, I thought I've seen that plate before and wondered if Griff and Nola were related. =))

    Thanks @nolaegghead. I can use all the help I can get.

    Thanks @Mickey, I learnt it all from wathcing you...and then learnt me some more . ;)

    Good suggestion @henapple, but I think I'm leaning more towards burgers. Or a shepherd's/cottage pie. Not sure.

    @michigan_jason - Mrs. G has quite a collection of boots. My collection of Red Wings seems to be growing as well considering the City buys me a new pair of steel toed every year whether I need them or not. :D

  • @griffin You will never keep up! It reminds me of me with my hats, and my wife with her Coach purses and matching shoes/wallets. Even though her purses are $350 plus, shoes $100 plus, and matching wallets $50 plus, I still can't keep up with her. ( I have over 50 new era hats as well :/ )

    Nice looking wings Griff!  I too have been suffering from egg withdrawals.  I'm hoping to make up for it this weekend.  Deep dish pizza, a couple of butts, 3 racks of ribs, and a couple of racks of pork on the agenda! 




    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @Griffin...I slow cooked burgers with the PS in till I could safely flip. I removed the PS and went to clean burn temp, let then sit in the flames and yanked them off. Best I've every done...great char.

  • What are Fiesta plates?  I only eat off of Italian & English bone china.  Does the paint come off the Fiesta plates when you eat from them?

    You guys have good taste. I grew up 20 min from the fiesta ware factory and forgot about it as an adult...end up meeting my wife who is from Texas and loves the stuff.

    They are as close the Egg as any dinner ware, being that they are glazed ceramic. Made in Newell, WV. I may need to make trip to the factory store as my Mikasa "Made in China" dinnerware is breaking and going from me casa to Casa de Óscar el gruñón.

  • the factory store in Newell is pretty neat. rooms full of Fiesta and outside by the parking area there is a colorful pile of broken dishes. image

    @Mighty_Quinn,
    Do you know what the pricing is like? Kohl's has it for 50 bucks per full set of bowl, dinner and salad plate, and mug. On sale @ 40% off for 28.99. I am willing to drive out there and swing by on my way to Columbus if the price is right.

    sorry, don't know Eggcelsior. its been years since I've been there last and that time I was there as a tourist. Seems like a pretty good deal at Kohls though. one good thing about the factory store is that pretty much everything is sold individually, not as sets so you can pick up exact pieces you want...mugs were kind of a waste for us. maybe prices are listed on website.....http://www.fiestafactorydirect.com/Default.aspx?

    Hard to argue with a meal like that. Wings are one of our favorite thing on the Egg

  • EggcelsiorEggcelsior Posts: 10,820
    Hmm.... Looks good on Amazon. Set I want for 26.47, Prime eligible. Individual plates are a better deal factory direct and I don't know if I need a full set, as Amazon is the best price for that.
