Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you had a hoppy Easter and are ready to spring into warm weather cooking mode! There’s nothing better than spending time outdoors with the sweet aroma of fresh cooked Ribs. Baseball season is also underway, so it's the perfect time to try out some chicken wing variations! We have Jamaican Jerk, Lemon Pepper, Fired-Up Wings and even a Whiskey Onion and Chicken Steak if wings aren't your thing. Bon appetit!

New Mini Trick

HotchHotch Posts: 1,205

Did chicken breasts on the Mini last night and had a hot spot on the grill so one was getting to temp fast. Went to relocate it and then realized all I had to do was spin the grid on the Woo. Did a rotate every 10 minutes. Chicken was great. Another lesson leared.

  • That's the beauty of the Egg for me. Something to learn with each cook. I find it reacts differently depending on weather conditions. Unlike a gasser, each cook is a learning eggsperinence.

    I rotate the grid when I cook on all of my eggs.  Every one of mine from mini to XL has a hot spot at the back.

  • Thanks for the heads up on this one. For some reason I always get a hot spot on my LBGE on high temp cooks at the hinge end of the grate.

    +1 to BOWHUNR....I never thought about just spinning the grate to make up for the backside hotspot on my XL.

    Continuous learning.........

    Thanks,

    I'd also recommend spilling more food on that gasket.  ...  Showoff...   <:-P
