Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Egg Cooks for a Sports weekend???

For those of us who aren't lucky enough to be at Eggtoberfest, does anyone have anything special in line for a weekend of college ball, baseball, NFL, NASCAR...am I missing a WWE PPV tomorrow night? :whistle:

As a Phils fan here in PA, I'm pumped/worried about tonights All-World pitching matchup. Good as it gets on paper for the NL! Felt like a disgusted Rangers fan last night...that 8th inning...OK, I won't say any more. Ughh. Dang yankees.

I'm doing some wings, sweet sausage and split breats tonight for the game. Then tomorrow I'm planning on my first Sprial Sliced Ham for the Colts/Skins in the evening.

Anyone have any suggestions for the Spiral Ham? I remember GG posting something a while back, but can't seem to find anything recent in the search.

    I rarely plan that far ahead. When it's time to cook tonight, I'll figure something out. :)

    As for your baseball comment, yeah, that 8th inning was AWESOME, huh?! :laugh: :laugh: Phils game tonight should be a good one too.

    Just got back from the Grand Kids Foodball Game (12 year olds) Great game & fantastic weather. It was one of the boys birthday so the parents (Samoan) made a plate for each of the team member, coaches and family. 145 lunches. They served 2 sweet samoan chicken thighs, 2 hot dogs, cold macaroni salad, rice, chop sui (Samoan style), small serving of Haagen Daas ice cream, a orange/grapefurit/watermellon drink and a can of pop. Now that's throwing a brithday party.

    I have been trying to figure out the chicken thigh sauce and seasoning but can't quite get to their quality. Been working with brown sugar, ginger, soy sauce and sprite.

    On to the spiral ham. Spiral Ham is fantastic. The link is below.

    The orange concentrate really adds to the flavor.

    Awesome isn't quite the word for me....unfortunately, the meory of last year is still burning. :angry: I hope we get a rematch of last year...but gotta get past the Freak and SF first. They look real tough right now!

    THANKS so much GG!
    I'm going to pretty much follow your cook, and will do combo orange/pineapple concentrate. Going to do it with Sweet Potato/blue cheese/brwn sugar mashers and asparagus with hollandiase. Should've got a loaf of sourdough started, not enough time in the weekend.

    Jason, a few weeks ago a local burger shop was giving out free sweet potato french fries. That is the first time I have ever tasted sweet potatoes, they were goooood.

    I think I will give the sweet potatos you talked about a try too. The pineapple might be a good addition, looking forward to reading what you think of the end cook.
