Get ready to turn up the heat as we dive into August. While there are only a few weeks left to perfect those tailgate recipes, summer isn’t over yet! Two things we’ll be making this month are Chile Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops and Bell Pepper Kabobs. Then, relax after a cookout with a cool dessert cooked on your EGG - Ice Cream Sandwiches! You can mix and match your favorite cookie flavors with ice cream flavors. Simple, yet delicious!

  • Re: Hell Yeah...Aaron won!!

    He deserves it, if for no other reason than the willingness of people to accept the long line as 'the way it is' if you want to eat great food.  And if you spend any time at all with him, you feel totally comfortable and at ease with him. 

    As for the Red Joe in the background, I understand that he has two and just got those in 2014.  He told us he had not learned to use them yet when we were there two days before the Salado Eggfest.  That's when he took us (Irish Rog, Spring Hen and Myself) on the tour of his cookers. 

    I also understand that he now has an Egg, either just before or just after his teaching a class at the 2014 Texas Eggfest.  His topic: Caveman steak on the Egg, or so I heard.  I was too busy serving Tasters to attend the class but we did get to see him later. 

    I suspect we will see him around Eggs in the future.

  • Prime Brisket Done

    As I posted earlier, I found this Prime brisket at H.E.B. and couldn't resist buying it, especially at that price.

    Trimmed it and prepped it with some Meat Church BBQ Rub for an overnight stay in the frig.

    On the Egg.

    Ready to take off.

    After a few hours in the cooler it's ready to cut.

    It's so tender that slicing is difficult, even with a very sharp knife.

    DSC03473 by springchickentexas, on Flickr

    It's getting even more tender.

    And quite juicy in the point.

    It was so tender that I finally gave up and decided to chop it, all of it. And mix some Franklin BBQ Sauce to keep it wet.

    Looks to be about 7 or 8 pounds left from the almost 13 pounds after trimming, cooking and trimming off the hard bark in a couple of places, and eating about a pound for 'lab test purposes.'

    Bagged some for us and for a bunch of neighbors to get their opinions.

    If I do get the chance to cook a Prime brisket again I'll probably do it different. But this one was pretty good.

    Thanks for looking.

  • Busy Big Green Eggs in Ireland

    Our good friend and long time Egghead, Roger Beck, aka Irish Rog, from Limerick, Ireland, is busy earning an Egghead reputation to be proud of.

    Here's the latest story about him and his passion for the Egg.

    http://www.independent.ie/life/food-drink/i-barbecue-52-weeks-a-year-31168749.html

    Roger came to Texas in 2014 for the Salado Eggfest, and to experience some "real Texas BBQ."

    Thirty minutes after his plane landed in Houston, he was tasting a Texas favorite, Chicken Fried Steak at Texas Roadhouse.

    On the way to Salado, we detoured to Lockhart for some Black's BBQ, followed by a wonderful Mexican dinner in San Antonio, and in line at 8:15 AM for some Franklin's BBQ in Austin, where he got to meet Aaron Franklin himself and to be given a personal tour out back to see where and how his famous briskets are cooked.

    By the time we arrived in Salado, Roger was well prepared to enjoy a full weekend of hanging out with Eggheads and doing what he loves to do - Cook on the Egg.

    By the time we took him back to the airport, he had to have another Chicken Fried Steak, but not before he got the complete royal treatment at the Chicken Ranch, including the tour of the Coop and a breakfast that included grits.

    Now he wants to come back.

    He's working on it.

    And he wants us to visit Ireland.

    We're working on it.

    Way to go Roger. Nice article, and now that we've met you, we know every word is true.

  • Tulsa Murph Stopped By The Chicken Ranch

    Long time friend, John 'Tulsa Murph' Murphy from Tulsa, happened to be in town and wanted to come by for a visit. It has been a long time since he attended the first Coop Party back in 2008. It was then that the 'Girls' took a shine to him.

    DSC03412 by springchickentexas, on Flickr

    Judy and I have seen him a couple of times at the Oklahoma Eggfests but not since then. We really enjoyed the visit. He brought wine.

    DSC03414 by springchickentexas, on Flickr

    Yes, we fed him some prime ribeye and he seemed to have liked it. I thought it was pretty good myself. Did it reverse sear.

    DSC03415 by springchickentexas, on Flickr

    We talked about everything under the sun, and when the sun went down, we kept talking. He told us about his many business trips to countries all over the world. I think he must be on first name terms with the airlines.

    He still cooks on his Egg but doesn't post anymore. Too busy. But he asked about a few old Egghead friends. We brought him up to date over dessert and coffee.

    DSC03416 by springchickentexas, on Flickr

    Thanks for stopping by John. Let's not wait seven years before the next visit.

    Yes, he got the "I've Been To The Coop" token. This is his second one.

  • Re: OT -- Any gardeners out there?

    This is what I came up with for my Sweetie to grow stuff. It has auto-drip irrigation and some frames to cover it up with plastic if we get a cool spell.  And, yes I put in the paver stones over decomposed granite to keep her little tootsies dry.
