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! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

New member-first post

Howdy,

Wanted to get the first post out of my way and say hi from the Pacific Northwest. I had some trouble getting approved, so I've become intimately familiar
with the search function and have been reading, and egging, my butt off for the last 3-4 weeks. I've used a Weber Genesis for the last 7 or 8 years,
but have heard good things about the Egg. I'm on another forum, non-related, with Fan of Fanboys ( who I want to thank for the help while I waited to get approved) and SickEyeDiaz, and after reading their posts and hearing about this community, I pulled the trigger on a LBGE. Since then I've scored a PSWoo3,Wok, Pizza Stone and just recently scored one of the open box ThermaPens.

My wife about beat me with her shoe when she found out how much coin I was dropping.....then I smoked a pork butt, which out of it provided some killer pulled pork sandwiches, and then carnitas tacos a night or two later. She is now a believer and supports this endeavor.


Since then I've nailed salmon

wonky shaped, but delicious pizza

Plus skinless chix breasts multiple times that have come out great.

The only thing that didn't come out spectacular was a stuffed pork loin I made. It was a little dry....not a disaster,
but enough for me to realize I needed a better thermometer..which has been taken care of.

Tonight....I've got pork and beef ribs smoking right now..have been at about 215 for 3 hours...will probably pull them
after about 5 to 5.5 hours.



I have two labs..Otis and Stew, am drinking a New Belgium Rampant IIPA and have listened to Credence Clearwater Revival, Eric Dolphy's 1963 Illinois Concert and Refused today. I also like to fish, kayak and watch MMA.


There!
