Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you had a hoppy Easter and are ready to spring into warm weather cooking mode! There’s nothing better than spending time outdoors with the sweet aroma of fresh cooked Ribs. Baseball season is also underway, so it's the perfect time to try out some chicken wing variations! We have Jamaican Jerk, Lemon Pepper, Fired-Up Wings and even a Whiskey Onion and Chicken Steak if wings aren't your thing. Bon appetit!

  • I would still be buried under a pile of that chorizo you made yesterday if I were you. That was good stuff. I'm good on pork for awhile though. The pig was well represented in Austin yesterday

    Some of the bacon and chorizo will be on it's way to Seattle and Reston VA to share with family. I work for FedEx so I can afford to ship it Express with ice packs overnight.

    I agree there was a great variety of pig cooked several ways at the Eggfest. All of it great IMHO.

    my son got bacon at breakfast this morning and i had to turn away. not really sure it's the bacon's fault. who am i kidding? it's never bacon's fault. I can't stay mad at you, bacon.

    Looks great. Just put 12.5lbs in the fridge to cure today. First batch was very tasty, but not what I wanted. Looking forward to #2.
