We've had our BGE for a few months. We've grilled lots of the basic stuff: salmon, steaks, chops, pork/beef tenderloin, chicken pieces, etc. Nothing fancy but its been great. So what do you all suggest if I want to move up a little in developing my skills? Your ideas and recipes?


  • time for an overnighter. I would start with pork shoulder or a chuck roast for pulled beef

  • overnight pork butt. 275 dome, right around 1.5hrs a lb. But if you haven't spatchcocked a chicken yet, that should be next on your list. Raised direct 375. Around a hour.
  • Have you tried ribs, ABT's, smoked meat loaf?  All good cooks.  As mentioned by Cen-Tex pulled beef is one of my new favorites.

    start with a pork butt, then do a pulled chuck roast, then the mighty brisket.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.  Love me or hate me, I am forum Marmite.

    Go onto the Naked Whiz's sight for an excellent step by step instruction on Paella, complete with sources for the pans, type of rice. etc.  It is a lot of fun, and fairly straight forward.  Turned out great.
  • I say pizza. First so you can kill your gasket and replace it with an upgrade(might as well go ahead and get it over with, the egg should come with a better one) and second because its good.
