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!

What Are You Eggin' For Cinco De Mayo

Well it is this Sunday but I am going to be celebrating Cinco De Fortho (that would be Saturday) by watching the Derby and making some fajitas on the egg.  What are you cooking for this glorious non American occasion?

    Still not too sure. Probably have to stray from Mexican cuisine as I made fajitas two nights ago. We will see. Hoping to get inspiration from this thread.

    I might do a take off on the theme.  Think I'll do ribs and Mojitos.  Ribs because my wife bought some nice ones today and Mojitos because I'd like to usher in the spring and the Mojito is a summer tie favorite and it has a Latin flair........and also because I have sworn off Tequila!  And a Mojito is basically a Mint Julep with Rum.

    Fajitas are not Mexican, they're Tex-Mex.

    I'm doing a brisket, not exactly mex or tex-mex!

    I've been thinking through a chicken enchilada casserole that is pulled smoked chicken in a cast iron skillet. ??

    SWMBO is from Mexico so we'll do something traditional tomorrow. Even if it's Carta Blanca

  • I did a bottom round roast yesterday along with the BBQ sauce from the Aaron Franklin thread.  Did the beef indirect at 300 until internal was 125.  Amazed at how tender and moist it was!  Sauce was good but may want to tweak a bit, sweet and tangy, tasty!

    That will leave plenty of leftovers for just me and my wife, so not sure she'll even get fired up :(

    Cooking nothing special but I will tip a Corona beer to Ignacio Zaragoza, the native Texan and Mexican army leader that led his troops to victory over the French in the State Puebla on that date in 1862.
