Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with your EGG? Virginia Willis’ three course menu is perfect for a date night! February is also National Chocolate Lover’s Month, so don’t feel guilty if you’ve been cooking a little more dessert than usual on your EGG. If you’re looking for something a little more savory than chocolate, try some Roasted Chicken Flatbread or Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard.

I see some remove the center Brest cartilage along with the back bone and some just smash the breast down...Which way do you suggest?

  • Just press it flat, if it breaks great, if it doesn't break, that's OK too. Lately, I've cut the chicken up into two breasts, two legs/thighs and two wings. 
    Put the legs on first, 5 minutes later the breasts and 5 minutes or so later, the wings. The legs get done at 170-180, breasts at 150-160, wings, well they are just done. If I'm lazy, I leave the whole bird together.

  • I actually use a sharp knife and cut into the cartilage. Then flip over and when I press down it splits easily.
