Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Confession: I had to use a gas grill........

We've been in a Denver for the last week for a family wedding.  Nine of us are staying in a 5-bedroom house in downtown Golden, CO.  We decided to stay in tonight, and as always, I was appointed the chef.

Bad news......they only have a gas grill.  How do I work this thing and what do I do?!?!?!

Long story short:  6 prime cut ribeyes, 6 bacon wrapped filets, ground sirloin burgers for the kids, elk brats for appetizers, plus grilled corn, Yukon Golds, beer basted onions, green onions, homegrown tomatoes, and roasted chili peppers all on a gas grill.

It turned out "ok" in my opinion.  Everyone is raving about it, but I know how much better it *COULD* have been on the BGE with my beloved charcoal.  Thankfully no one got pictures, but I had to confess my "sin" to you guys--what's my penance??  I'll be back BGE'n in 12 hrs from now.

BTW, shout out to the great folks in this town.  Very nice people, courteous, outgoing, and overly welcoming to my young children.  I stopped by Ruff's BBQ Store (BGE dealer) and got all the groceries this evening from Edwards Meats.  Hopefully we can get some Rockwood in these stores.  I would really like to have it out here because I know how well it would represented and embraced by this town.  Thanks to the people of the greater Denver metro area and Golden,'s been a blast!
