Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Brisket "Calzone"

I had some leftover brisket from last weekend and I've been dying to try a new dough recipe I found, so I decided to put the two together and make a "calzone".  I'm not sure this qualifies as a calzone, but it was darn good!

I found a dough recipe that supposedly replicates Mellow Mushroom's dough.  If you're not familiar, Mellow Mushroom is a chain pizzeria mainly in the South East.  We've got one in Athens and the food is good.  I HIGHLY doubt I'll be going back, though, because this recipe I found tastes exactly like their dough!  It is delicious!  The recipe can be found here.

My wife had a standard cheese, garlic, and oregano calzone and she loved it as well.  My brisket calzone had brisket, ricotta and mozzerlla cheeses, caramelized onions, and banana peppers.  I painted both with some EVOO and dusted with Parmesan cheese on the top about half way through the cook.  The outside had a nice crunch and the inside was nice and doughy.  I can't say it enough: both of these were delicious!  Calzones will definitely be on my short list.

This is the cheese calzone.  Didn't get an action shot of the brisket calzone, though.

As high in the dome as I can get it without having a smaller grate.  I've got another set of fire bricks that I could use, but I don't have a smaller grate...yet...

Please forgive the wine colored counter tops.  That's also on the short list to change.  They are U-G-L-Y.
