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!

This weekend was a bit much even for me. I promised my staff that I'd cook for the office summer bbq and I also promised my mother that I'd cook all the meat for my Aunt's party this weekend. Thus began my version of epic meal time. Here is the rundown:

Round 1 - Staff BBQ:
- Two 9 pound pork butts, 18 hours on the egg.
- 24 chicken thighs, brined over night and basted with soy sauce and mirin when they were cooked indirect at 400 degrees.
- 36 sliders, Korean slider recipe.

Round 2 - Aunt's Party:
- One 9 pound brisket, rubbed with S&P, smoked for 6 hours at 250 degrees on the egg, then braised in the oven over mirepoix, a bottle of red wine and beef broth for 3 hours at 350 degree.
- 20 bratwursts, smoked for an hour 1/2 at 250 degrees.
- 24 chicken thighs, brined over night, then cover in Tony Chacheres seasoning and cooked indirectly for an hour at 400 degrees on the egg.

I'm a little worn out, but a promise is a promise and I had to show off both my BBQ skills and the versatility if my XL BGE. Lord knows I'll be sleeping well tonight. Here are some pics.

    Way to bring it! That's a great cook.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    Way to go!  Tired but I am sure you had a sense of accomplishment.

    A weekend like that may tempt you to give the egg (and yourself) the night off tonight!

    Good work.
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Much like the salad bar at a buffet, dessert is a waste of space and takes up room for more BBQ.  Not going to happen on my watch.
