Bought a sack of 'em on sale the other day and wonder if anyone has a simple way of doing them in the Egg.. like with butter, stock, seasonings, etc. and wrapped in foil. Any ideas would be most welcomed! : - )

    Thank you! Gotta give it a whirl!! 8 - ),,
  • We have been through three ten pound bags in the last month using this simple deal. Slice about half an inch thick and stack back together as you do in order to keep it from separating into rings. As you are stacking brush each slice with EVO and we sprinkle with Cavender's Greek seasoning. Let it set while the Egg is coming to temp. Then just slide the individual slices onto the grill. Of course one of those little perforated cooking sheets definitely makes them easier to handle. They have accompanied everything I've Egg'd for the last month. Really easy and GOOD.

    I like to trim the outer skin off and slice the top 1/4 to 1/2" off. If the onion won't sit up trim the bottom so it is flat. Then take a knife and make a V in the top. Like cutting a small funnel out. Hard to describe! Then put some butter in the V a little salt & pepper. Wrap in foil tight so the steam can't get out. put on the egg and cook until tender. They are best when the butter browns a little and the bottom is charred. Have also used worcestershire sauce and my son likes a half of a bouillon cube. I'm sure any Dizzy Pig would be great also.
    Another more simple way is cut into 1/2 to 3/4" slices, stick tooth pics into the side to keep rings together, spray or coat with EVOO, season as you like cook direct until tender. I like a little char on mine too.

    I'm only hungry when I'm awake!
  • I do mine like Jim but I use butter and honey in the "v".
