Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

The 17th Annual EGGtoberfest was amazing - here are the highlights Click Here

For Christmas my wife got me a large BGE. For the last couple of years I have been using an electric smoker and gas (infrared) grill to do a lot of cooking. I had been looking at getting a charcoal smoker & grill, and she surprised me with this.  She gave it to me the night before we were leaving town to visit family. I didn't get to use it right away, but luckily I got to spend some time reading through this forum to get a better understanding of how to use my new toy and get ideas.

Once we got back home I jumped right in with using my egg. In the first few days I did a test run with chicken, tried my hand at pizza, grilled some awesome rib eyes, and did an overnight low & slow smoke of a pork shoulder along with baking rolls and a peach cobbler for dessert. 

I am amazed at what I can do with my egg.

    Welcome, always room for one more in this boat!

    My son has an infrared on his custom Jackson - incredible Trex steaks - some times even makes the egg look like it's out. 
    Be interesting to see what you think.
