Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

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

  • I find it amazing how a small change in a cooking technique can have such a big impact.  I know this cause I'm still trying to find my balance when it comes to cooking and so my fail rate started high but is trending down.  CT, If I had your fail rate, I would be proud.  Now , just a reminder, "If it aint broke, Don't fix it!"

    I hear you but it still sucks to lay an egg with 20 people lined up to eat and expecting the good stuff.

    My brisky is done.  FTC until this evening.  My DigiQ power supply died.  Found a replacement in a box of wall-worts, but then one of the probes was reading haywire, so I just did it manually.  230 when I went to bed, 290 when I checked it in the morning.  Brisket was 180.  Seemed buttery tender at 196, so I pulled.  FTC in pre-warmed Pelican cooler.   I'll report later when I break it out.

    Salt and pepper only and three large chunks of oak. Minimal fat trimming - just removed the large hard fat.

    I had the same thing happen to me last week.  My brisket came out so dry that it was like eating leather.  I think the brisket itself was partly to blame - no marbling thruout like the last couple did.  Just have to try again!
