  • I usually do loin backs, they are leaner, but spares are great too. I like to keep it simple, rub with whatever rub you like, or just salt and pepper is great too. I often add a little celery seed for a little zing. The on the Egg, starting at 230is…

  • Botch said: !  I've seen recipes for roasting the flour in an oven, rather than on a stovetop, will try that someday but haven't yet.   Hungry for gumbo now!   I did the roux in the oven following Alton Brown's recipe, basically 350 for …

  • PASmoke said: Looks like Chicago to me....Great job! I'm going to give the deep dish a shot sometime this winter.....Can I ask what your temp was and how long you cooked it? Actually took longer than then the 12-15 minutes in the recipe. W…
  • Looks fantastic!

  • Hawg Fan said: Nice looking cook.  What's the mesh grate you're using on top of the Egg grate? It's a silicone grill mat, think I got it from the BBQ Guru folks years ago, don't know if it's available now. It's great for these, delicate fi…
  • bgebrent said: More details please? Cooked up a sauce of bacon grease, butter, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and few other things to glaze the ribs with at the end of a 5 hour cook. Made it up as I went along, will change a few things …
  • Yes, platesetter legs down on cast iron grid, pizza stone on Egg feet.

  • Loin backs, 5ish hours, spares, 6ish. Almost always works for me. I don't fret over them much anymore as long as the temps are good, and am usually happy with the results. Yours look great!
  • Yep. I have a Sabre.

  • Cow Lick is awesome on brisket. I have not tried the others.
  • SSN686 said: Morning Basscat: " was the Game On?" I like it. Tried it on a pork chop a few days ago and this. Coffee, cumin, and little kick, nice blend of flavors. I'll definitely be buying a bottle when it comes out, and looking …
  • Nothin' much to tell, pretty basic. Some ground grass fed beef, a couple J-Ville Italians, some Italian spice, onion, garlic, bread crumbs and an egg. The smoke makes them special.
  • I just make a drip pan with HD Foil, just roll up edges enough to cover the Platesetter.
  • Believe me, Mattman, I've had chicken every which way, had my Egg for nearly a dozen years. But I've not tried a true 225 L & S before, so I did. Always playin' with it, that's why the Egg is so much fun.
  • Thanks. I'm in it for the meat, not the skin. If I was real concerned about skin, I'd be cooking duck. But this got close, I think with some playing around with high temps at the end, or maybe even cheating with a broiler, I could get some pretty go…
  • Works great with the grate, but I'll probably try it without sometime too. Seems like a really good addition, but just got it this afternoon, so I'll have to play with it for a while before I am totally convinced.

  • On the Big Green Egg BBQers group. 
  • I used to skin them but found I much prefer the texture and taste when I cook it skin on and down the whole time, raised direct on the Mini. The blood line is easy to eat around, and I haven't noticed that it changes the flavor of the meat at all.
  • I have a little cookbook from a lady in Cozumel, but recipes abound on a Google search. Basically a marinade of achiote (ground anatto seeds), garlic, sour orange juice (or a mix of orange and lime), and a little cumin, salt and pepper, then proceed…
  • Raging River and a little olive oil, raised direct on the Mini for 20-25 minutes at 275-300ish, until it felt like it was done, didn't check the internal temp.
  • Hoppin' John is a traditional New Years dish, this one from Emeril is easy and good...
  • It's Lodge cast iron, got a 3 pack of small ones, oval, round, and rectangle from Amazon a while back. Pretty handy.
  • Grillin_beers said: I'm pretty sure you can't get those in SC so I will have to trust you that it tastes good. What do mini octopuses run these days? Oddly enough, we've got a pretty good Fish Monger here in the middle of the Ozarks, a…
  • Recipe I used had me blanche the critters in boiling water for about a minute, then rinse in cold water to stop the cooking, and put in marinade in the fridge for a few hours. Then on the Mini for about 3 minutes each side. I served them over pasta …
  • stemc33 said:What's below your plate setter? That's the BGE cast iron grate.
  • Jstroke said: Where are you located. Red Devon cattle are almost unheard of. Southwest Missouri. Black Gate Farms ( ) sells at a few area stores and farmers' markets.
  • I've gone 22 hours, 225-250ish. 
  • Mine's kind of old, the bars are tapered, one side flat, the other side pointy, newer ones may be different, I don't know. I use the other (pointy) side for grill marks on steaks and stuff.
  • Biggreenpharmacist said: @Basscat‌ What kind of grid is that? And awesome looking ribs! It's the BGE Medium cast iron grid. On the platesetter, legs up.
