Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

There shouldn't be should there?  I just bought a breast and trimmed it up (cut the backbone and ribs off).  I hit the breast bone, but can't get the thing to pop.  Am I just not cutting deeper enough there?

    Correct. Same way for me on both. 400 raised direct and skin side up. I like11/12 lbs and about 80 min cook
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, just added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • I cut deep around the keel bone so much you'd think it would come out. Then flip it and press down to break the ribs.
