Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

New Year's (or any day) Chili - (picture heavy)

Been making chili on New Year's day for years on the stove top. Since I got my Egg in 2012 I searched high and low for a no bean Egg Dutch Oven chili recipe without result.

Don Henley's chili recipe is a good basic no bean recipe. Simple. While I like it spicy I don't like pain, I cut the cayenne pepper to 1 tsp. Another variation is I use an 8 oz can of tomato sauce and 15 oz can of diced tomatoes. It was done with pecan and cherry chunks for smoke. Started at 350 but took it down to about 300 after a couple of hours. It took about 1 hour to get to a good simmer. After two hours skimmed  fat and added masa/water mixture. Cooked 4 hours total, adding water as necessary to keep it from getting too thick. I think the pictures will tell the rest of the story. Here's the recipe: ;
