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

Newbies First Cooks from NC

Hello everyone! Bought my first BGE-XL a couple of weeks ago and I have been trolling the forum here for tips and ideas.  Fortunate to to have this site as it is such a great resource of information and it has been extremely helpful!

I have included a few photos of my first cooks.  The first was a spatchcock chicken and pork tenderloin...yes I initially forgot the drip pan as I was "caught up in the moment"... but they both turned out great!  The second is my first attempt at chicken bombers or bombs?.  Trader Joes in WS NC sells boneless skinless thighs which worked out perfectly.  Manchego and garlic filler, hmmm.  The next one is my first pork butt on the BGE.  Modified "cazzy turbo style" with what I call a cheater glaze to help with the bark (a little unconventional but it works). The first pic is fat side up the second is bottom side up which is where the cheater glaze comes into play.  Look forward to learning from all of the information and posts on this forum!
