Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

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

More Hardware for the Egg...

We traveled north this weekend to a little KCBS BBQ contest that had over 50% off the field as past champions, quite a shoot-out it was.  With record setting scores from this tough field we came away with a 1st place Pork, 3rd place brisket, 7th place Ribs and a 5th overall.   Fun weekend at "Smokin' on the Water" in Lakeport, CA.

    Congrats!  Any chance you'd be willing to share some 1st place pork tips?

  • Our good pork scores we are having this year are the fruits of our practice.  The more you cook the better you become.   That's the best advice I was ever given, and now its a gift to you my friend.  Drop by our Egg shop someday and we can talk Egg all you want, not eager to give away any of our competition secrets on the internet.

    Do you cook your competition food the same you do at home?

    Yes, when you do practice cooks they need to be as close to the actual comp style or else it would defeat the purpose of practice.   I tend to cook different cooks at home as we get tired of the 4 competition cooks after a while.  Steaks, Salmon, Tri-tips are the "go-to" cooks at home nowadays.

    My local team took home a perfect score in brisket from that comp.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    That was something special to see. A 180 is really rare (like watching a pro bowler bowl a 300 game). The Smokin' Yankees team was more stoked than the Grand Championship team was. Their pitmaster was understandably proud wearing his 180 pin (given by the KCBS). Sorry for this lousy cell pic taken in poor lighting:

    Yeah, we scored  176 in Brisket and only managed 3rd place in this tough field.   Chris of Smokin' Yankees is a good friend and we have enjoyed cooking against for several years.  We are happy to see him get a 180 yesterday, the first we ever seen in all the comps we have participated in BTW.

    Here's a tip for only you henapple...we like to use a hot dry rub with a sweet sauce.  :)

    the only thing that sucks, for me, is you're not teaching a brisket class until Feb! lol
