Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Last Minute Turkey

Ahh, Christmas Eve....the most busy day of the year for me because I'm the world's biggest procrastinator.  Oh well, there are others out there like me I'm sure.  My wife and I have no kids yet, and we already Christmas shopped for everyone else in the family.  But stupid me waited until today to shop for my wife.  I think I did good though, and I even picked up a last minute turkey for dinner tonight.  It was only $6.67 from Food Lion, so I couldn't pass it up.  It was a small little fella (at most 9.5 lbs, but I didn't pay attention), but hey, it's only me and the wife.  Rubbed it down with some Dizzy Pig Down and Dizzy and set the BGE indirect at approximately 335 deg f dome temp with some Apple and Cherry Woods for smoke.  One of the best things about the BGE is that you can "set it and forget it."  I don't even know how long it took (maybe 2 - 2.5 hoursish?)...  I did some woodworking in the garage for my wife while the Big Green Egg cooked dinner for me.  ;)

Great dinner, and the turkey had just the right amount of smoke.  Can't wait for the leftover sammiches.
