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

Feeding the neighbors

henapplehenapple Posts: 11,166
Cooked all weekend but mainly for my neighbors. Sent an email out offering to cook extra but ended up running the egg for them. Spares and butts. All a huge hit. My cooking neighbor is building an outdoor kitchen and constantly talks about buying an egg. I mentioned framing out a spot for his future egg... Sold. He lamented yesterday that his Traeger didn't cook good burgers. He's blown away by the versatility of the egg. Anyway, the neighbors love the smell wafting across the yards and the food.

    We recently got some thanks from our neighbors for bringing these wonderful smells to the neighborhood. It's the gift that keeps on giving!

    Good to have friendly neighbors.  I'm lucky on both sides as both thank me for the wonderful aroma they wake up to on an early weekend smoking - the egg of course.

    typically butts and ribs for me. Steaks always smell awesome but I don't get to wander around and enjoy that or I would just wind up with charcoal at those temps.

    Probably ribs and pulled pork. Brisket... Long cooks.

    My neighbors in the direction I blow all my egg smoke are both vegetarians and it's not because they don't like the way meat tastes and smells.  I know I drive them nuts with the constant cooking and smoke wood aromas I blast into their back yard.
    :ar!

    I have a new neighbor. Strange fella. I put a butt on at 2am Saturday AM in preparation for my son's birthday. Looked over the egg and eyes drifted to his carport. He was in his boxers pulling clothes off of a clothesline. I am convinced he comes outside to smell the egged food regardless of time of day. Actually, I think he is trying to have his clothes downwind so he can smell like ribs at work. Is that "baby back" you are wearing??? =))

    Funny i am cooking a spathcOck chicken and just went for a walk around the neighborhood. Yes actual exercise. The smell is ridiculous and I must piss off my neighbors when using the egg. :)

    So my neighbor trims the leaves of palms etc that cross the fence line and dumps them over the fence in my yard. He gets free landscaping from my yard, but dumps the yard waste on my side anyways. Not quite sure how to approach this. Not cooking for him for sure.

    Shoot him with a paintball gun when he does it.

    This doesn't surprise me, I have family (nephews) that got a Traeger years ago, used to give me hell all the time about how much better it was vs. the BGE.  After I made a few cooks on the BGE for them it must made an impression on them, now the both of them have BGE's.  I can't get them to shut up about the BGE. I like to throw the ol' "I told you so" every once in a while at them.

    @caliking, does he have a pool? I just found your dog's new poop disposal area.

    We're lucky. We've been here the longest (26 yrs) and since moving in we've now got 4 eggs in 5 houses, 1 new braunfels 10yr old smoker and some sort of pellet smoker pushed by Terry Bradshaw. Mine was the first egg and since it's aroma filled introduction my next door neighbor couldn't stand it and got an xlbge, then just last week another neighbor got his lbge the same day I got my second. Now the newest neighbor in between us (with the Terry Bradshaw gizmo) is asking all about the egg. Typical weekend is a communal-esq shared, smoked meat event with one person usually taking the lead and the rest contributing whatever. Beer, cigars and smoked meats are plentiful. The wives like the 70's-sitcom backyard community and the guys like the beer, cigars and smokin'. Just lucky, m

    There is a dude in my townhouse block(directly behind me) that runs an Ole Hickory CTO and has a trailered off-set pit. I believe he may have a LBGE in his backyard but I haven't had a chance to talk to him yet. I saw it through his open garage walking the dog once. He runs a BBQ catering company. I ought to challenge him to a throwdown.

    All good suggestions, but he ususlly does this early on Sat morning. I don't have a dog, and he doesn't have a pool. All I smell in my hood is lighter fluid most of the time!

    @caliking Mix some lighter fluid and vaseline together and carpet bomb his plants, Lt. Colonel Kilgore. It'll smell like victory...

    I cooked 50lbs for a guy and didnt even get a thanks. Not even a report about weather it was good or not. I wouldn't piss on his face if his teeth were on fire.

    I have to take that back. Some of it, anyways.

    The guys wife sent me a thank you card with a $50 gift card to one of the nicer restaurants in my area.

    It took them a few weeks but better late than never.

    I was afraid this posting was from my neighbor! After eating many meals off my egg they bought a Large. I really scored as they are excellent cooks, always make way too much, always invite Elmer Fudd for dinner and send me home with extras. They cook more than me sonwhen I smell the egg, I'll make my way to the mailbox..... You know the rest of the story.
