Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Pesto-Provolone Stuffed Chicken Wrapped in Bacon

It was finally the time to try stuffing some chicken. Why I waited so long, I have no idea. This will be in the rotation of cooks from now on!

First I butterflied some chicken breasts. Then smeared pesto and put a slice of provolone, closed it back up and put in some toothpicks to keep everything inside.

On to the CGW Swing Rack along with the rest of the package of chicken for lunches next week.

I cooked it indirect because I figured direct might cause some problems getting the bacon crispy at the same time as the chicken. 
After the plain pieces were done I moved the stuffed chicken up to the top and threw on some baby asparagus.

These were really good, I used cherry and apple wood and the smoky flavor took away some of the bacon flavor so next time I would probably skip the wood chips. 

Served with a rice pilaf.

Great meal and now its time to experiment with different fillings! 

I also got a Foodsaver last week and decided to get the mason jar attachment and made salads in a jar with the extra chicken we cooked on the egg.

People say the lettuce stays crispy even 9 days later. I love the foodsaver already and I can actually justify getting giant briskets and bigger meat purchases and have them ready to eat some awesome leftovers on the egg! 

Today was some Allegro Hot & Spicy marinaded Chicken legs big thanks to @Doc_Eggerton they were really good!

I hope everybody had a great weekend! I know we did and I already have lunches made for the week!
