It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

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

  • First off I feel bad for you with your Avatar (Long suffering X-Season Ticket holder here).....:) Adjustable rig - I used the platesetter once and its somewhere in the shed buried.  I use the rig for every cook - it never comes out (unless loading)…
  • I wait for good smelling smoke.   new lump - 30 minutes for high heat (350) and higher cooks and about an hour for low heat (225-275).  If reusing lump sometimes its faster.  When the lump is damp - sometimes longer to get the heat up and going go…
  • Curieux - Awesome beer. Chimay Cinq Cents - Very good Matilda - Goose Island Anti-Hero IPA (Chicago Area) - Good ipa
  • If I want crisp skin I leave the bird uncovered in the fridge overnight before cooking

  • fill up the firebox to the fire ring.   at 250 I can have my large Egg burn for 24+ hours. If the ribs are done you can shut it down and still reuse all the lump leftover on your next cook.
  • what temp?  How much lump in the Egg?  Calibrated dome thermo?

  • Went to a party this weekend and had some Pineapple mojitos - Game over.
  • Nice stuff.  Love the looks of those eggrolls.
  • I wish our Cable tv provider would get up with the times and have wireless boxes.   I used to end up dragging a cable out the Window to watch TV outside.  I cant get to that Window anymore since getting a new washer/dryer (long story). A wireless r…
  • Saturday - Hopefully Ribs and/or BBQ chicken Sunday - Going to a party Monday - Maybe Pizza's on the new stone if the weather holds up.
  • Ladeback69 said: OK, back the mid 80's I worked security for concerts in town so I got to see a lot of shows.  But the one I remember the most that I liked was Monsters of Rock at Arrowhead Stadium in 1988 which was Kingdom Come, Metallica, D…
  • I have been to allot of concerts over the years and my music tastes have changed over them. Metal notables Iron Maiden back in 88 in NJ Black Sabbath with Dio in 2000 something Def Leppard w/ Tesla Bent Brother (Twisted Sister as their own cover ba…
  • I used both.  I like Rockwood better.  Much cleaner smoke and quicker to clean smoke.  Now Royal Oak is not that bad - I used it for the first 2 years allot.  Let it burn a little longer and it works fine.
  • Perfect. Thanks.  Hopefully can try this weekend.
    in Ribs ? Comment by robnybbq May 11
  • Now that will leave a mark.
  • OK I forgot to add one leftover I like from the Egg.  I will try and make it this weekend for next week. Egged meatloaf stuffed with sauteed mushrooms and cheese.  This did reheat very well last time I made it when the family was away and I was in …
  • Scott - was not meaning you brought up the DR stuff.  I just dont want to go into that and I apologize for doing so.  I appreciate your help.  And I do try the recommendations others provide.  The party was a success.
  • gdenby said: fishlessman said: by the time its that late the only thing im eating is the lime and cherry in my cocktail drink i dont eat many dinners during the week and if i do its something simple like those frozen stuffed clams or …
  • Will check it out. Also do most dinners consist of plain(rubbed) meat or are allot in sauces (BBQ, broth, cheese) I guess on a salad the meat would be mixed with the greens and dressing.  What about say frying pan fried pork chops and frozen mix…
  • What time - I'll be over. Besides my pickiness over food my wife and kids are worse.  Very limited menu to start with.  I would eat seafood most nights (if I knew how to cook it better)  - them - nope. 
  • I did not want this to go into the health crap and I wont.  It is what it is and it will end one day. I was trying to see what others do on a daily basis for eating since I dont get it.  Growing up it was mac n cheese form a box and hotdogs, spaghe…
  • We tried to eat the leftover spatch but it was way too smokey tasting - nasty.  Maybe it should have been buried in sauce it would have been better but straight up it ended up in the trash.  Wendy's to the rescue.  no wonder I cant loose weight. On…
  • Made some skirt steaks on Saturday and a plain spatchcock chicken yesterday.  Tonight we will get home around 8:00.   Note the spatch was good yesterday - now I need to make it into something edible tonight.  I also have some of the steak leftov…
