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! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Had to fire up the platesetter storage unit

Bless me Father for I have sinned.  It has been months since I last used the gasser (except for storing the platesetter when not in use).  Had the Egg all cleaned out and loaded up for tonight's pulled pork cook, when the family decided they wanted burgers for dinner.  Didn't want to deal with an overnight cook following a hot burger cook, so I fired up the gasser.  One more excuse for a second Egg.

    You didn't throw out your oven when you got a microwave did ya. My point being they both have their place. I'm probably catch an earful over this but gassers have their place too. Let's face it, I also have an offset smoker and to the purest your not truly smoking on an Egg since the heat is still directly below the meat even with a platesetter, your not cooking with only smoke . Don't get me wrong I love my Eggs and I'lll never be without one. I've had kamados for 30 years and nothing beats their versatility and flavor and I've made a lot of believers in them. The bottom line is your cooking outside over a fire, something very primal within all of us and we wouldn't be on this forum if it didn't touch us deeply. I'm into the tequila so please don't be too brutal with your responses. Maybe I should have just brought up politics or religion.

    Work the food, not the gear.  I'm not gonna fire up the egg to do a 60 second sear in a cast iron griddle.  That's ridiculous.  But people do it because they like to work certain gear.  All the power to them, but I don't like to do stuff the hard way unless there's some kind of better result.

    I could cook some good food on my gasser, still use my in-laws all the time. Just don't make a habit out of it. Only reason I don't have one now is because mine died and I used that as an esxuce for the SWMBO to buy the egg

    Off topic but my dad is building a stupid huge outdoor kitchen, bar area tvs tables sinks hot tub. I was over last night going though plans with him and he's building in a gas grill and burners for cooking fish and stuff. I said "where you gonna put the egg??"
    Valid question, he doesn't have one but with this bill an egg would be less than tax. He said "I don't need no egg, I've got an oven inside its just a fancy oven"

    BLASPHEMY!!!

    Using the gasser cuts down on the cigar/beer time.

    Not all gassers are propane. Mine is on natural gas.

    Can't argue with that one.

    I still have a gasser sitting on the patio.  Most of the time it's extra shelf space while I'm egging, but I still use it for beer hot tubbing some brats.

  • I have a Weber Genesis that is 17 years old.  I use it for a quick burger or sausage cook.  Sometimes I just don't have time to fire up the Egg.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!
