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!

New EGGHEAD

This year for Christmas I got large BGE. My dad got it for me because he is an egghead himself. He warned me that once I started it would be hard to stop and he was not kidding. So i have fired it up twice for cooking so far the first was a standing rib roast that was amazing. I had the meat cut back from the ribs and I removed all the hard fat. To flavor it I used olive oil, garlic and rosemary. I did not have meat tied while it was on the BGE because i thought it would not move because of the weight. It was eleven pounds before I cut away the hard fat. In about the last hour on the BGE the meat shifted back so it was not resting completely on the ribs. I don't think this effected the meat much because i was using the plate setter. I had a constant heat of about 350F and it took about three hours. I pulled the rib roast off at 120F I should have done it at 110F. I am more of rare to med-rare person.

My second time firing up my BGE was for chicken. I did three chickens with instant gourmet, the original rub. The chickens averaged a little more than 8 pounds for each chicken. I used the plate setter and with a constant temp of about 300F. I put all three chicken on at the same time. I also added cherry wood chips when i put the chicken on. I pulled them off when the meat was at 165F. I had one additional chicken and took some time prepping this last chicken. I separated the skin and meat and  and placed in between butter, rosemary, bay leaf, onion, lemon juice. I filled the cavity with butter, rosemary, onion, carrots, lemon juice. I rubbed on the outside an italian blend of seasoning.  I cooked under the same conditions as the first three chickens.

I couldn't believe the difference in the color between the chickens.
