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

28 hours in the making; all plated up... HFD!

Well, the brisket lacked the smoke ring I was hoping for, but it was quite tender and tasty, none-the-less. The ribs were spot on, although not quite contest winning material. In all, not to shabby for the first big outing on my new Egg; I had a blast doing it, and it was quite entertaining for the family! Happy Father's Day to all...[p]Big_Green_BBQ_IMG_0655_2007.jpg

    Tony,
    looks great...[p]i know all the 'science'behind the smoke ring, but honestly, the racks of babybacks i did saturday had virtually none,. go figger. hahaha[p]and don't worry about your cook not being perfect. you probably always will think your cooks could "be better". no one else will though.[p]

    stike,
    Thanks, and me thinks you're right; the family thought it was wonderful... nothing but compliments. But then, it is father's day; would they have dare criticized it, knowing how much time was put in by dear old dad? lol...[p]TD

    Tony,
    tell you right now, you will cook so much, and get so used to it, that any tiny thing that doesn't turn out 'perfect', you'll be apologising for.[p]i put chicken in front of our friends. they are gourmet foodies, and i was apologizing for it because it didn't turn out as expected. my wife told me that when they had us over a few weeks later, her friend (the wife) confided that they were "a little nervous and intimidated" because it had been the best chicken they'd ever had. i had to laugh.[p]my wife always says, jus shuddup and enjoy it, it's good.[p]

    <p />stike,
    Now that you've "verbalized" it; it occurred to me that this happens to me all of the time, already. I suppose I am just more picky than most people when it comes to the food I have cooked. But when we eat other places, I am happy as a lark, usually. Go figure...[p]Here's the pan of sliced brisket flat bathing in it's subtle, complimentary sauce... even though no smoke ring, it was pretty danged good![p]TD[p]
