Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Get ready to turn up the heat as we dive into August. While there are only a few weeks left to perfect those tailgate recipes, summer isn’t over yet! Two things we’ll be making this month are Chile Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops and Bell Pepper Kabobs. Then, relax after a cookout with a cool dessert cooked on your EGG - Ice Cream Sandwiches! You can mix and match your favorite cookie flavors with ice cream flavors. Simple, yet delicious!

First Grill

Just got my table built and the L BGE set up yesterday and attempted my first cook. I am amazed how precise I can control temperature to bake (mac-n-cheese), grill (steaks) and roast (corn). I love it.....

 

Is this thing on? I see smoke.........

    My table is made of Tiger Maple with Cedar legs. The finish is Cabot Aussy Oil in Flaming Mahogany with three coats of Teak Oil over that. I got the wood very cheaply from a local mill, otherwise I would have used something less expensive. I'm pleased with how it turned out. The "hot plate" bottom is 16x16 Travertine tile.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback. Iwas really pleased how well everything turned out and it's the best tasting grilling I think I've ever done.

    No, not motocross although I was in CCS Roadracing series years ago but it does have to do with motorcycling. Being a Program Manager for a Rider's Edge learn to ride program, an MSF Rider Coach, a track day instructor and a BMV Tester I was being called  "motorcycle boss"  it evolved into MotoBoss.

     

    Thanks for you comments.......

    Great work! The inside of your egg is still so white it's hard to believe you even stoked a fire in it!
