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!

First cooks = success!

Maiden voyage of the LBGE was Friday night.  Cooked a Simon and Garfunkel chicken that was the best we'd ever had.  Repeat performance Saturday night for relatives.  Decided to live dangerously and try pizza tonight - two small ones for the kids, one big one for me and SWMBO.  Thanks to all the great tips on this forum everything turned out brilliantly!  Still have room to improve, but happy so far.

    Thanks everyone. @canman1976: I used apple wood chunks for a light smoke. Sat the bird in the fridge for 24 hrs to dry out the skin (extra crispy when done!). Rubbed with EVOO, then a little turbinado sugar, then a rub of salt, pepper, parcely, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Raised indirect at 380 for about an hour. Potatos and mushrooms in the drip pan tomsoak up juice, asparagus on for the last 15 min.

    Great first cook. I love Simon & Garfunkle chicken.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.
