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!

    Gonna try that one!  Any reason a wooden skewer would not work?

    I use a wooden skewer. Stick it through the middle and it will prevent you from cutting through the dog. I find that spiral dogs get more char to them and hold your toppings in the bun better, 'specially chili!

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Kids. French fries, hot dogs, etc just serve as vehicles to transport ketchup into their mouths.

    I use a wooden skewer as well.  Dont make too many spirals or the dog will fall apart when it sticks to the grill.
