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!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Well the rain held off until I got everything going. I put a chimney cap on top to keep the rain out, and a baggie over the remote transmitter. I won't need to open until late this evening. You can't beat a BGE. Some French's mustard and Butt rub.

    Are those two flats?

    Yes sir, two flats.

    I would put some foil under the parts that are exposed outside the drip pan to cut down on the overcook possibilities.  Flats are tricky but even the singles and strike-outs are good in Q sammiches.  Enjoy the cook!

    Yep, I'll remember that next time. I'm still having trouble keeping my BGE smoking for over 5 hrs. So there in my oven at 230 degrees.

    The temperature was at 180, when I pulled them.

    Maybe a hiQ would help with ash flow. Could be charcoal with a lot of ash or old ash build up.
