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: Pork Crown Roast Ideas!

    Assuming this is basically the "rack of pork" sold by Costco, I'd figure on one bone per person unless you've got really scrawny racks.  So, to be safe, for 16, you'd probably need 3 of them.  I've cooked them slow and fast on the egg.  Either way, they turn out great.

  • Re: How to learn how to cook?

    One trick that can help big time with NY strip (which could otherwise be a little tough) is a Jaccard meat tenderizer.  It's a few dozen tiny blades that you jab into the meat before cooking.  It tenderizes and as a side effect, the holes created speed up cooking...so watch out if you're used to certain cooking times for meats of a given thickness.

    I did giant NY strips tonight, which I was quite happy with.  One was 1.8lbs, the other 1.85lbs.  I sat them out on the counter at least an hour, jaccarded them, gave them a good sprinkling of my salt mix (mostly kosher salt, a little fresh ground black pepper and paprika), and cooked them indirect about 40min @300F flipping/and rotating them at 10, 20, 25, 30, 35, and finally removing them at 40min.  At the 25min mark and each flip time after that, I stuck one or both with a thermapen to check their internal temp.  At 40min/117F, they were ready for searing.

    1 paper towel folded to 1/4 size + maybe 1 T used cooking oil, bacon fat, whatever's handy balled up in a depression in the center of the lump.  With good lump, that's all you need to get it started.

    And cut them as thin as you're able to.  Otherwise, they will be tough.

  • Re: Asiana Air Pilots Names

    Epic fail. They even lied and said that the names came from NTSB.
    Not a lie.  Someone told them they came from the NTSB.  It's just amazing that a "news" organization would run with that and report it as news with no original research or verification.  Why don't they just fire the reporters and stream twitter on the TV instead?
