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!

What a weekend!  Missingtoof (fellow egghead forum member) and his family came on over to Birmingham for the BBVA Compass Bowl between Ole Miss and Pitt.  In celebration (mostly him, ROLL TIDE) of the Ole Miss whoopin they put on Pitt, we decided to go CRAZY on the egg.  Picked up some chicken wings for the kids, and some ribeyes for the big people.  The ladies got 3 whimpy 1" thick steaks, and missingtoof and I picked out a 2 bone, 4lb rib roast that would be cut into two, 2" thick, bone in ribeyes!  Also, I had 3lbs of Royal Red shrimp that came from Bon Secour, AL straight off the shrimp boat and those went on the egg as well.  After a 1 hour ish indirect of the chicken wings, we threw the shrimp on indirect at 250.  If y'all havent had Royal Reds, these shrimp are sweeter than any lobster or snow crab you could ever eat, and they were excellent on the egg. Then, while the wives whipped up some creamy beans and shrooms, some asparagus cassarole, and a few baked potatoes, we fired the egg on up to 800 plus.  Got a nice sear going on the steaks, and then shut it down with a couple chunks of mesquite.  Everything turned out spectacular, especially the steaks, which melted in your mouth!  Nothing compares to how this grill can do a big a.. steak!  Great weekend with great friends.  Can't wait to do it again!

    Great way to spend time with friends and BGE's.  Wondering if the red shrimp are related to the Key West pink shrimp we get here in Melbooourring that come from the Keys??
    Perhaps yours are just sunburned after the long trip from Key West??
  • Best kinda of weekend, good food and good friends.  As usual everything looks wonderful.

  • The Royal Reds (shrimp) were GREAT! The shrimp is found deeper in the water than normal shrimp, and because of that the price is usually higher, but taste totally different from the "normal" shrimp. Also, bham_egger did his first sear on his Egg with those steaks.... They were great! Here's an article about the shrimp:
