Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

The 17th Annual EGGtoberfest was amazing - here are the highlights Click Here

Who is your BBQ hero?

I would like to know who you read and take advise from.

    Since I have never really read a bbq book, I've found that practice makes perfect ... I am still far from perfect.  Learned more from bbq forums as I worked my way though different cookers over the years than anything.

    It's the Egg Forum! Some on here obviously post more than others so there's more opportunity to take from them and rightfully so. But I enjoy reading what most people post or advise, especially in response to my posts, which often surprises. From that I take the missing nuggets that fit into 'my game' and see where they go. Sometimes it's just a missing piece, sometimes a section, sometimes the puzzle gets turned 90 degrees, sometimes we start over and it ends up being a different picture. And sometimes I'm able to help someone else! Either way, it's interesting especially when you think you had something figured out. So it boils down to the interaction, the ability to give and take, ask and receive, and discuss over a cold one or two.

    In addition to the members of this forum, I have learned a fair amount from Steve Raichlen. He figured out a way to make a living traveling the world and learning how other cultures cook and sharing it with others.

    My foundation was set from Steve Raichlen's book How To Grill, but I have really ascended to new heights from the help of this forum.

  • Growing up, my Dad & my uncle. I have surpassed their skills (I think), but they were great to learn from growing up. I don't have BBQ heroes anymore. I look at cooks and think "Man, that's cool! I gotta try that!" Monkey see, monkey do.

    For me, it's Chris Lilly and Ken Hess.  Those two have helped me immensely and are just good people.   Plus Ken is a bonafide Egghead.

    I would have to say our cook Etta, my great aunt Eva, some of the cooks out in the country I watched and learned from, but above all my mother..She taught how to q and how to taste the food with my mind and then put recipes together. BTW I have never been able to duplicate her Divinity nor her deviled eggs, come close, but missing just something..
    What I like to read are old cookbooks (20s, 30s, 40s and 50s )and Cook's Illustrated.

    I guess me. Went to the BBQ school of hard knocks.

    I  must admit though I learned a lot from this site. To all of you before me a thank you!

    Now that my neighbor is getting one I can nurture her. And maybe her husband who doesn't cook much.

  • For me its been a village, a mixture of many people.  Chris Allingham site continues to be a great resource as it's well organized providing the basics.  I really have enjoyed layering in Chris Lillys, Johnny Trigg, and Henry Soo recipes.  Lately Aaron Franklins brisket YouTube video resulted in a best brisket cook.  I've also been to the American Royal a few times and learned a ton walking and talking with the teams.  Everything combined makes BBQ so enjoyable as different days bring different people and flavors that influence my cooking.
