It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Bought my LBGE in July. This is my first experience with the EGG and I'm hooked. I have followed this forum for quite awhile before deciding to purchase the EGG. All the feedback on this forum made my decision easy. I have no regrets. I love cooking on the thing. I made a deal with myself that if I liked the EGG, I would sell my 1954 Dodge M-37 Power Wagon (military 3/4 ton pick-up truck). This may have been a mistake. I thought for sure that I would be getting rid of the EGG before my truck. There are other things that influenced my desicion to get rid of the old truck (actually it is in very good condition) but the EGG was a strong reason. Anyway,
What I really need is a recipe for making squash on the EGG, particulary spaghetti and acorn. Any ideas, I'll appreciate.

    RickyB,[p]I really like stuffing and roasting squashes. I've done acorns on the egg, but I prefer pumpkin.[p]Stuffed pumpkins are now a family fall special. Pretty soon you should start seeing "pie" pumpkins in the markets. They are generally quite small compared to the kind of pumkin used for jack-o-lanterns. They range in size from around 6" diameter to maybe 10". Smaller is usually sweeter.[p]I usually brown a mix of ground beef and pork. Now that I've learned to do pulled pork on the Egg, that will be my next filling. Then mix with ground nuts and some dried berries and 1 egg. Perhaps add a little cooked wild rice. Cut top off pumpkin. Scoop out seeds and pulp. Prick with fork all over inside. Coat inside with oil, and stuff filling in with mild pressure. Put top back on and oil outside[p]Place on Egg over a drip pan. Roast at 325 - 350. The outside will brown a bit, and the shape will begin to slump. Usually some frothy brown goop oozes out around the top when its about done. A skewer should pass through the outside without too much push when its done, but check the temp on the center of the filling.[p]They can be sliced in sections, the filling usually hold together pretty well. The slicing and puff of steam makes a nice presentation.[p]Acorns can be done much the same way, but they're harder to sit upright. [p]gdenby

  • gdenby,
    I've never had pumpkin except in a pie or bread. This is sounding very interesting to me and I believe I'm goint to give it a try. I have found since cooking on the EGG that I have expanded my taste experience and cooking things that I have not done before. I'ts kind of fun.

  • RickyB,[p]I've been grillin' for a long time but am new to the BGE.[p]Our tastes run the gamut from veggies through fine steaks.[p]We've really enjoyed almost all squash on the egg (have not done spaghetti).[p]Bsically, cut in half, clean out, apply evoo to meat, cook indirect at 375 until tender with a fork test.[p]We use just a few wood chips and end up with a wonderfully flavorful end product - mmmmmmm.[p]Hope this helps,[p]eddy-turn
