It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

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

  • Re: Home-made Bacon...I'm not impressed

    I wasn't very impressed either, but I can get great thick-sliced smoked bacon from Amish vendors and decided I couldn't do better. 
  • Re: I Gave Away Kitchenaid Mixers For Gifts This Year

    @Durangler, is that off-white? It looks like the exact mixer I have. Mine has been dated fairly reliably to '82 or '83. The feet looked the same, too; mine just wouldn't stick to the counter and the mixer would "walk" even when doing light duty.  I was going to replace them until I priced them: $5 each! I used some 120 grit wrapped around a flat object and sanded them just enough to get rid of the shiny surface. Work perfect now. (This is assuming that the feet still stick a bit beyond the base.)
  • Re: First Pizza and Calzone

    Nice job of not overworking the dough while forming the pie. I love those bubbles, and you don't get them when you play too much. 
  • Re: Mapp Torch or a Looflighter?

    I close the lid on the torch as I light. My lump sparks at times but usually not much. 

  • Re: Finally nailed smoked turkey breast

    Finally figured out my photo problem: 


    @rholt: I used a half cup of TABLE SALT without iodine to 2.5 quarts of water. I brined it for an full hour. Seemed like a lot of salt, but it did permeate the meat. 

    I made broth with the bones and used it in a smoked turkey pot pie the next night. Unbelievably good, though I baked it in the oven.
