Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Minimalist Chicken

I struggled with calling this indirect chicken, to draw folks to the first pic.  This is a fine example of using an XL strength, that is thought by a lot of folks to be a weaknesses; namely cooking area and firebox size.  I wanted to do these marinated, boneless and skinless chicken breasts indirect.  I just loaded some lump in the back of the firebox, and cooked indirect in the front.  In the last 5 minutes I put them over the heat.  I cooked a small meal on the XL and used no more lump than I would in my Small.  I also had direct and indirect in the same cook without using any stones.

Indirect at 400 for 30 minutes, and then 5 minutes direct until the internal was upper 150s.  Marinated overnight in KC Masterpiece Chipotle Lime.  Turned out a little tacky, sweet and citrus tasting.  Pic 2 is raw from the marinade. The meat was very juicy.

Simple plating with just some home pickled red cabbage and onion, and a few raw veggies.  Went lite tonight.
