Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

I've been reading that a lot of new BGEs have been hatched over the last couple weeks. Well, I'm one of them. Got my Large a week ago, built a table this weekend and have been spoiling the family ever since. I've got pizzas nailed including a fantastic BBQ Chicken pizza. Looking for some ideas for Sunday, other than the traditional ham. Any thoughts?

    NAKED HAM / SMOKE ONLY Let me start that for the past 6 years i have only cooked Egerts Ham (this is an outstanding ham Egged on the BGE). A short while ago went looking for (did not know this at the time) a naked ham / smoke only. Looking at other ways to do a ham w/o the burbon, maple syrup, brown sugar, NO ANYTHING. Guys this was outstanding ham. It tasted like ham. It was a 7 lb Cooks ham (shank) and NOTHING was put on it (Nothing). Just smoke: both lots of pecan and cherry chunks. Cooked at 300 till 145. I did score the ham deep. Cooked indirect. image<img src="http://cdn.vanillafo

    Wow. ... really are a bunch all at once today. Must be something in the water!   Welcome!

    Spatchcock chicken is great and have heard it works just as well with turkeys - maybe a spatcher turkey with some appke wood smoke?

    @Mickey you have convinced me. Naked smoked ham it is for Easter. +1 on the spatched chicken or turkey if you don't want ham.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    The key is NOTHING on it except smoke and score it deep. It taste like ham. Did it for my wife and the last two Fest's I went to. All saying it taste like ham.

    How about turkey?  Mad Max Turkey is good and so is spatchcock turkey with your favorite rub.  I know this because Wilma doesn't like ham or it doesn't like her (I'm not sure).  Oh, I amost forgot, Welcome to the club!

    How about a couple of butts??  One for Sunday. Heck of a meal, pulled pork over "black beans and rice"!   And one for weekday pulled pork sandwiches?
