It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Citizen Q, Thanks for the advice. I went back to the butcher today and asked why the brisket was trimmed without the fat cap. He said we only sell the center brisket cuts here. We don't have the point end. Says good luck finding it around here …
  • BGE Pit Crew, Wow. A 12 lb. roast is a big one. I tried this for my family too with a larger roast. My additional suggestion would be that the roast should achieve close to the desired finished temperature during the initial rise before searing …
  • Luv My Egg,[p]Check my original post in the archives dated 12/11/03 under Most Perfect Rib Roast (Julie). Looks like the time required with more like 3 - 3.5 hours.
  • BGE Pit Crew, [p]The roast I made with this method turned out to be the best roast ever! Perfectly and evenly pink throughout. I had a 4.5# roast and it took a total of 2 1/2 to 3 hours. My method involves removing the roast at a temp. of 117, co…
  • SuperDave, Happy New Year, and sorry to welcome you to the ranks of the Type 2 diabetes club. As Mad Max will tell you it is not the end of life as you know it, although there will be changes. Make sure you know what your numbers are, especially …
  • Car Wash Mike, The soy eggnog is made by Silk and it is very good. If you read the nutrition labels between that and the store bought stuff, well, the soy stuff is not a heart attack in a glass. I think it would be great with some rum. I took a …
  • edbro9, You need Kenny G's chili to die for. I don't make any other anymore.[p]Barbara
  • Dublin Dawg, I have tried several recipes, including customized marinades and rubs and here is my suggestion: Rub with Dizzy Pig cowlick, then Trex as above.[p]Barbara
  • RRP, Welcome, Jackie! We need more women on the forum. (Although it is a fascinating study of the mind of the male).[p]Barbara
  • TPJ, You would have thought of it if you were one of the ladies who usually has to wash the pan........[p]Enjoy the lasagna![p]Barbara
  • GrillMeister,[p]I ordered a turducken once from Cajungrocer.com. Cooked it on the egg according to directions and it was just awful. Actually, it was not the whole turducken which fed about 50 people, but a roast for about 10. The outside turkey …
  • dhuffjr,[p]I never even knew until I was an adult that there was such a thing as cranberry sauce that came in a bowl. We always had the canned stuff pushed out onto a plate, and you could see the can ridges on it. No wonder I never liked cranberry…
  • Car Wash Mike,[p] Can't find the kahlua chocolate chip cake recipe in the Archives. Is there a link to it?[p]Thanks,[p]Barbara
  • irishrog, How did the Big Green Egg make its way to your part of the world anyway? Something tells me there's a story there.[p]Barbara
  • Omaha Fred, Dr. BBQ's book (which is well worth buying for many reasons) has a fabulous beef ribs recipe in it. I made them for the first time a few weeks ago and they were really good. My husband won't eat pork ribs so these were a great alterna…
  • D Gross, Get the large unless money is an issue. The grid diameter is 18". I very rarely feel like I need more cooking space, but sometimes would like another egg for cooking things at different temperatures at the same time. When I bought mine,…
  • SmokingInMO, So glad to hear you are back egging and your son is safely home.[p]Barbara
  • kjed, I have made that Dallas Dandy Brisket many times, and there is never a morsel left. Definitely wrap it in foil toward the end of the cook or it will be dry.[p]Barbara
  • mad max beyond eggdome, Get a good pedometer and set a minimum goal of 10,000 steps a day. Getting the feedback is very motivating to add exercise to your day. The one I like is NL-2000 by New Lifestyles. It is pricey (about $50) but easy to use…
  • dhuffjr, I have had my egg for 7 years, and will never go back. Not only is the food great, so is the "cult"[p]Barbara
  • Michael Lumia, I have had my large egg for about 7 years and can't think of a thing.... except it is heavy to move. Since I wheel it around in its nest, this is usually not a problem. I love making turkeys that are juicy and flavorful instead of …
  • SmokingInMO, If you don't have Dr.BBQ's book, get it and try his jam-glazed cornish hens. A big hit at my house![p]Barbara
  • Amazed, I have had the large for about 7 years and have very rarely needed more space. I think it is the most useful size, altho I am considering a second egg for simultaneous cooks. It is amazing how much stuff you can fit on there. Tonight I h…

  • spincycle, I've made several pizzas and they have turned out really well. I use a platesetter with legs down and place the pizza stone on top. This should give you a surface that is equal to the height of the rim so you can easily slide the pizza…
  • New Bob,[p]The guy could eat anything he wanted until he hit 50. Now his doctor wants him to lose 5-10 pounds. He is devastated, I am jealous. For awhile he was reciting his day's intake to me every night, until I pointed out that nobody in the w…
  • New Bob, I am proud to be one of the ladies of the forum, and a proud member of the cult. Unlike your lucky wives though, my husband does not cook at all. Does nothing that involves applying heat to food except toast. What he ate before we got m…
  • badbruce, I don't have a link, so you should go buy the book! You will not be sorry. In the meantime, take a roasting chicken, season it all over with Dr. BBQ's herb rub, stuff the cavity with as many separated unpeeled cloves of garlic you can c…
  • eggor,[p]If you have a kosher butcher or grocery store, ask for some of their "grillers" or hot dogs with skin. The best! If not, Nathan's beef or Hebrew National are good substitutes. Although I love pork spareribs, I think all-beef hotdogs are …
  • Bear Country Woman,[p]Congratulations! As a female egger, I am in the minority but we are definitely out here. Welcome to a great group. You will love your egg, no question. Don't stress about the accessories. You have way more than I did when …
  • Tara Trevino,[p]All those suggested tools are great, and you will enjoy all of them. My very first cook on the egg was steak and potatoes, and since I had no dome thermometer (the dealer I used in 1997 didn't stock them back then so I had to wait f…
