I had a hankerin' for some BBQ: And when I want some tasty BBQ there's no better way to do it than on the Big Green Egg. Today I decided to do some baby back ribs. I put a dry rub of paprika, salt, pepper, garlic/onion powder, cumin and a touch of cayenne pepper on the ribs then loaded them up on the 'Egg with some Hickory and Mesquite chips to provide the smoke. 2.5 to 3 hours later (just about now, as a matter of fact) at 275 degrees and they will be done. I'm pairing them up with some collard/chard greens cooked with bacon and onion.
Should be a great dinner!
Wow, day 38 and I haven't posted a photo of my beloved Big Green Egg? Time to fix that!: For those of you that don't know about the Big Green Egg (I guess there might be a few of you :-) ) it is the absolute best outdoor cooking appliance EVAR!!! It's a ceramic cooker modeled after the ancient Asian Komodo Cookers. We've had ours for over 5 years and still love it like we bought it yesterday, it's that good.
You want to grill up some tasty steaks, the BGE handles those with aplomb.
How about a slow-smoked pork shoulder? Yup, no problem.
Got a hankerin' for some pizzeria style pizza? The Big Green Egg will give you some of the best you've ever had!
Ok, I may be gushing a bit about the capabilities of the Big Green Egg but I'm not "eggagerating" :-) at all. The Big Green Egg is well worth the price and will last a lifetime if treated with a little respect.
We love ours and plan on having it for a long time to come. Check out the official site for more information. Feel free to ask me any questions about it and I will try to get you the answer.
