We hope you had a hoppy Easter and are ready to spring into warm weather cooking mode! There’s nothing better than spending time outdoors with the sweet aroma of fresh cooked Ribs. Baseball season is also underway, so it's the perfect time to try out some chicken wing variations! We have Jamaican Jerk, Lemon Pepper, Fired-Up Wings and even a Whiskey Onion and Chicken Steak if wings aren't your thing. Bon appetit!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

  • Jeepster47 said: @cazzy ... opps ... think you left out a few words in your answer.  Shouldn't it read: "Even if we had all of the above, most of us would fail to achieve his level of success cooking a brisket." Sure...I guess I could hav…
  • Cookinbob said: Did you note that he spritzes? (supposedly not needed on the egg), and I was surprised that he wraps after, not during the stall.  Also wraps by color, not by temperature.  He also pulls by feel, not by temp (though he finds 2…
  • Yes, I'm totally stealing the weather pics you posted!!!

  • Cookinbob said: Maybe he went down to the crossroads and sold his ever lovin soul to the devil.  Can't write about that! If only Peter Luger's did that!  Worst expensive steak I've had.  The others weren't dry aged prime either so it just …
  • Perfect cook!  Looks great...awesome color!

  • Looking good so far! May be the camera angle but yours doesn't look twice as thick as the others.   Happy Birthday Blakey Boy!

  • I know this is a broken record I keep playing, but you do not have to FTC your brisket.  FTC is not part of a recipe and is really meant to be used when you're done well before your serving time and need to hold. In fact...FTC is risky and is a too…
  • nolaegghead said: But it says Sani-Safe S140-12SC-PCP 12" Scalloped Roast Slicer...and Franklin says "...not scalloped".  Could it be the other knife on that link? No...he misspoke.  He calls it serrated when Dexter calls it scalloped....…

  • nolaegghead said: what about reverse flow vertical? I sure hope so!  I will be in the lab in 2 weeks and I definitely will report back.  
  • Okay...I have to ask.  Are the cooks y'all have posted the last few weeks all recent cooks?  If they are, y'all can totally out eat @SGH.   Oh...awesome freaking cook, once again.  Very very impressive!!
