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


Just threw em on! Having a News Years Day cocktail and watching that smoke rise from top of my XL Egg ... Life is Good. Got my new AR Woo2 combo in use with some Apple Juice in my catch pan and some hardwood chunks added to my Lump. Dinner will be great tonite!

    Looks great! Ribs are my next venture. I am new to the BGE. Loving my large. I've done burgers, rib eyes and NY Strips, a brisket, and chili in the dutch oven on the BGE. All were terrific. I am hoping for ribs next week. Keep posting photos and tips! Happy New Year!

    I really like spare ribs; seems to be a lot more meat. I trim and square them up some so I guess they end up more like a St.Louis style rib. I do 225degrees with the ol tried & true 3-2-1 method and have never been let down yet. I use Apple Juice and Honey during my foiling. My rub is a basic homemade rub that is mostly brown sugar with just a smidge of garlic, paprika, salt & pepper. My family is not into Hot rubs.

    Won't be long and I'll be pulling the foil off my ribs. Have my sauce ready and getting ready to chop some more chunks of Hickory to add for the last hour of my cook. Anxious to open the foil and see if meat is starting to pull back from the bone. My XL has been holding 225 very rock solid all day, but the weather has been decent with no wind today.

    Nice. Layer your lump with the wood chunks and there's no reason to add. I love St Louis. the trimmings. Looks good. ..

    Ahh Man!! Currently feeling fat & sassy. Just got through shoveling down them ribs. Really good and got a nice smoke on them.

    Learned a lesson today ~ veggies don't work with a smokey low n slo. Shoulda just done them on the stovetop. I kinda figured I'd get horrible results trying to include them in the rib cook but I'm the type that will try most anything to see for myself ... its how I learn.

    Ribs were bone sucking good though. :-c

  • Next time you try ribs...go through process as you have and leave the sauce off let the rub give you the flavor and see what you can always add did great
