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

Grilled Romaine Salad

Wow. This salad gets better and better. I think this might be the best thing on the egg. I grilled the romaine (salt, pepper, parm cheese, and EVOO), fresh strawberries and blackberries, mushrooms, feta cheese, and grilled chicken (grilled with a few hunks of pecan which always gives it a fanastic flavor). Really a very nice dish.

    We are now addicted to grilled romaine! Beside the mushrooms, yours looks good :) Did you grill it with the parmesan?

    We've tried grilled romaine a couple times now and it's always lousy. What temp and how long do you do this? Really want to get this working.

    Cheers all-

    @Black_Badger we use romaine hearts and grill them @ ~400F for 60-90 seconds per side. We had success with temperatures ranging from 300F-500F.  Romaine hearts are much better than full romaine. Go easy on the olive oil because you do not want the drippings to catch fire and give a nasty taste.  Coarse salt is another requirement if you ask me.  I like the idea of grilling with the parmesan.  I will try that next time.

  • Carolina Q just set me straight on pizza because i was ready to give up. Put your plate setter in legs down, put two or three bricks side ways on the setter and your stone on top of that. The two things that helped me the most were the bricks to get hot air under the stone and pre heating. Getnyour egg to 475 or 500 and let it sit there for a while so your stone is nice and hot. I also cook my dough for 2-3 minutes before i put the toppings on. I am no expert but this is what i have learned through recent pizza failures. I made a pretty good one tonight. Once you get it you're just tweaking things amd getting better. I cant wait to try your grillex salad recipe!
    When you get to a fork in the road, pick it up, spear something with it and throw it on the grill!!!
  • Not perfect but this was my first successful pizza. Stone is 4" off platesetter and heated to a solid 475.

    Agreed, like the hearts. By accident, discovered that shaved Romano on the cut side melts right into the split heart in about 20-30 seconds. Also - I use a Misto to get the EVOO onto the lettuce, just enough to do the job.
