With the holiday weekend coming up,thought I would ask what everyone plans on eggin. I know I will be egging some sausage and some cowboy burgers. Maybe some ears of corn. I am also going to try some tomotoes with mozzarella sprinkled with basil and olive oil.And of course a cobbler. What is everyone else got planned?

    Ribs! With corn on the cobb.
  • ribs sounds really good! I have not egged ribs yet. Plan on trying that soon. I'm gettin hungry!

    Not sure yet. We have mostly rain forcast (surprise surprise) and it's really no fun standing around in the rain. But maybe ribs and corn. Or maybe just some quickie burgers.

    Ribs, burgers, dogs, maybe a butt or two. Would also like to try ABT's for the first time. Good thing it's a three day weekend!

    We'll be down at the ranch, so lots of cooking. :) But no egg. :angry: Wish there was room to take the egg, but the car is packed to the brim.

    I'll be doing a brisket on my old offset one day. And probably burgers, steaks, sausages, chicken and others things over live fire mesquite the rest of the time. Here's my set up.


    Will also be bringing down 2 boxes of pigeons and a ton of shells for some practice shooting. Throw in some beer and we gots a party! :woohoo:

  • That set up dont look so bad.
    Did you say beer and guns? yep, sounds like a Texas party for sure. LOL

    On my brand spanking new egg, I have a full weekend of cooking planned:

    Friday - pizza
    Saturday - no cooking (taking my wife to dinner for our anniversary)
    Sunday - beer can chicken, veggies (onions, peppers, potatoes)
    Monday - baby back ribs, corn on the cob

    Hopefully, my first experiences on the egg will be successful. I spent today firing it up and trying to control temperatures. I found it goes up to 600 degrees very fast. Much, much slower to get it down to 250 degrees. Maybe I need more practice.
  • Griffin-That set up looks pretty good.
    Beer and shooting? You gotta be a Texan! LOL

    Portabela mushrooms sounds sooo good.
    Let me know how you do that butternut squash. post some pics for sure.

    I think I might do some wings too. My bro says they're easy. I have done legs on the leg rack which is really easy to do.

    Pineapple upside down cake is my fave!Any recipe from Spring Hen is hit for sure!

    Heading down to the inlaws beach house in Nags Head. They are installing the new LBGE as I type this. Yeah, I'm excited, hope to have some pics sent to me soon. They picked up an 11 lb picnic shoulder they want me to do on Saturday and tons of ribs. Throw in some ice cold Bud Light lime (my hot weather outdoor beach beer) and it should be epic!

    Be safe and have a blast this weekend eggheads!

    I am planning ribs and wings on Saturday, then Sunday night I am going to put on about 24ish lbs of butt for a party on Monday. I might throw together some ABTs as well and perhaps some asparagus for good measure.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    We're doing a spatchcock chicken marinated in lime, cilantro, garlic and spices with smashed potatoes; turkey burgers, and maybe a hot dog or two. After last weekend we are kind of "cooked out" for a while. Came home after Athens and made a big pot of gumbo out of the leftover bourbon chicken - came out great but we are still eating it. No more room in the fridge.

    Cooking up a couple of 10lb butts for a BBQ we are going to Sunday. Probably doing some ribs for the first time on Monday for the family!!

    Walrus, that sounds like a very fun and tasty weekend.

    It is hard to get it back down. Trick is not to let it go over in the first place.

    I keep my egg pretty cleaned out of ashes (clean it before every cook)and it gets up to temp very quickly. I have to watch it closely at the beginning.

    Sounds like you're planning to have a lot of fun with your new 'toy.' You got it on a great weekend!

    How long do you marinate the chicken ?
    Sounds good to try.

    Thank you.
  • freedoniafreedonia Posts: 37
    Thanks. I thought if I starved it of oxygen it would come down pretty fast. I'm glad I experimented with it before I started cooking. :laugh: It was still warm, around 200 degrees, for a long time after I shut it off completely.

    I'll take your advice and watch it carefully before it gets too hot.

    We are headed to the lake for the weekend and I will be doing a 10 lb Rib Roast for Saturday dinner and will throw on two 8lb butts Saturday night for Pulled Pork BBQ lunch on Sunday to go with the Low Country Boil. Might squeez in some Fatties and Bisquits for Sunday Breakfast if the butts are done in time. Hopefully some ABT's are on the menu as well. Should be a fun and fattening weekend. Hope you all have a great one.

    Family and friends will be here for Ribs, burgers, sausage dogs and all the trimmings

    Son's best friend's family is from France. Fantastically nice people who have never been to a true Memorial Day BBQ - so they're coming over for Pulled Pork, Sausage, German style (warm) potato salad, slaw, jalapeño cornbread, know, everything that is right and fattening! :woohoo:
  • SeaBassHWDSeaBassHWD Posts: 44
    I'll be grilling up some marinated BBQ pork skewers using pork butt. One 10lb butt sure makes a whole lot of skewers. Can't wait!
  • Clay QClay Q Posts: 4,435
    I'd like to smoke up some spare ribs. Beer brats would be nice. Fish tomorrow! And I'm hungry for something lamb....thinking lamb stir-fry for somthing different.
    Have a great weekend.
