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!

Bread, Sausage, and Filets

Friday made some homemade italian sausage. Threw a few links on the egg last night, and they were pretty good. Next time I will use better/fresher fennel and a little less garlic. Also made some Artisan bread and baked it on the egg at 450 indirect. It was great. For dinner was Filets, covered with DD Raising the Steaks, seared at 700, finished at 450 with some mesquite. Very pleased overall, what to cook today?

  • That all looks great!

    I'm doing baby backs later. At least I'll be eating something I enjoy while I watch Peyton Manning shred the 'Boys.

    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.

    I love spatchcock, too bad I did one about 5 days ago. Ha!

    Ribs seem to be the choice today.

    Nice YFT by the way.  Mid 100s?  Those sickles are huge.

    Thanks on the YFT. It was 180. I'm 6'4" 260, to put it in perspective. Love those tunas!

  • Nice! We don't get to see the Big Eyes in the Gulf too often.

    Yeah, aside from the BFT the Big Eyes are the biggest around these parts.  Occasionally, I'll see some bruiser 100+ YFT but not often. And we usually don't see big BFT around here from what I've seen.  I've only been at it a couple of years so I might be way off the mark too.  Run out of Ocean City, MD and hit the canyons on the continental shelf.  You run out of FL or LA? And no, not lower Alabama, but I guess you could run out of Orange Beach.

  • Actually, I am out of Orange Beach. Unfortunately, I only get to offshore fish with friends and on charters (usually just a couple times a year). I do have an inshore center console, and fish inshore and up to 10 miles out a good bit. I live in Birmingham, so most of the time it's bass fishing, but I would much rather saltwater fish any day of the week. Bass are waaaay too finicky. Grew up in CT, fishing saltwater up there. Out of Orange Beach we usually fish the oil rigs between 80 and 150 miles out. They can get stacked up with big yellows. Nothing like seeing 100+ lb tunas skying 10 feet out of the water!

    Good stuff.  I'm originally from Montgomery.  Don't get down there often anymore and haven't done any fishing outta there since I joined the Navy over 24 years ago.  If I make it back down that way anytime soon I'll give ya a holler.
