Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
National BBQ Month sure was tasty! We hope you got to try just as many new BBQ recipes as we did and some old favorites as well. If not, you can find all our BBQ recipes here and try them out all summer long. One of our favorites was Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise and Ted Reader’s Rum Injected Sweet Potatoes. As the weather’s heating up, use your EGG for a cool treat-Ice Cream Sandwiches! Keep an eye out for some Father’s Day recipes from chefs & their dads, coming soon!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

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.
