For years I have always heard people say things like,
"Ohhh my big green egg is the best grill ever!" or "The food doesn't get any better than this- it locks the flavors in!"
I usually thought they were in some kind of cult or something but now... I completely understand.
Cooking on the Big Green Egg (BGE) is so much different than other kinds of grilling. I used to love my Weber grill but this BGE has completely changed me.
I have started to write temps/times/etc. down each time I cook meals because everything cooks differently. Here is a good representation of different cooking configurations as well as How the Egg Works.
I am also learning new BGE terminology i.e. burping the egg, direct, indirect, raised, shut it down, and etc.
I have cooked on my Big Green Egg almost every night since we put it together and this grill really is amazing! Bison burgers, Salmon, Steaks, Pizza, Lamb, and more.
Since I am an Big Green Egg-newbie (aka egghead-newbie) I am using new resources that are out there. I even started a Pinterest board that you can find here.
Here are a few resources that have come in handy thus far:
Eggheads unite and talk about all things egg. This is a great go-to!
I primarily follow them on instagram and refer back to the blog for the recipes.
Be on the lookout for my own take on BGE recipes. So far I am loving lamb the best on the egg and I haven't had the balls yet to do a slow long cook like pork butt or ribs.
Do you have a Big Green Egg? Do you recommend any good resources?
