Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Is your Big Green Egg still cooking even though it’s cold out? We hope so! We love the opportunity to cook heartier meals on the EGG during the winter. Some recipes you definitely want to try are Double Smoked Potatoes, BBQ Chicken Soup, Monte Cristo Sandwich and Breakfast Quiche. These are sure to keep your stomach warm & full! We can’t wait to see what winter-inspired dishes you cook!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the History of the EGG Museum and the Culinary Center too!  3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340.

Bone-in ribeye reverse sear (pics)

Did this for the first time the other day and it turned out great. Indirect at 285ish til 115ish internal then bumped up to 700 and 60 seconds on each side. Man it was good. My dogs enjoyed some of the scraps.

  • Awesome! Yeah, the dog is jealous. 

    I came to learn about reverse searing when I got my BGE, I cannot imagine doing a steak any other way! 
  • Looks great! If I can finish sealing my patio tonight I know what I'm having for dinner :D

  • Looks great!  One comment though...looks like a lot of juice on the plate after cutting,  How long did you rest it?

  • I'm very new to all of this so please forgive me if my question is a stupid one.
    I assume when you seared the steak you were cooking direct?

    I love the look of those and want to do the same.

  • when I go out for steak 9 times out of 10 I'm dissapointed even before I had my Egg my steaks on the gasser and now on the Egg are far superior to any steak house bar none and I don't pay 50 to 75 dollars for my steaks I buy pouterhouse from the supermarket on sale for $4.99 a pound  and have the butcher cut me steaks 3inch thick  and they wind up costing me like $20.00  and I and my friend enjoy them more then any steak house
