OT - Big Green Egg
Finally gave in an bought a used BGE. Always thought it was complex hard to maintain and an overspend. In the last month I have smoked butts twice. Smoked a turkey. Cooked steaks 3 times. Sausage and hamburgers too. I am addicted. Any other BGE people out there.

re: OT - Big Green Egg
I had my egg for many years before I finally figured out their greatest strength and purpose. Which is for cooking the greatest steak possible on earth. Better than ruth chris and all of those places in chicago too

The leap of faith involves heating that fricker up to 700 degrees or so which is intimidating as hell when youre going to throw expensive steaks on to such an inferno, but , believe me, it is transcedant. And will change your life

I would explain in detail, but i don't feel like giving shite away for free on here anymore. to be bodysnatched by xeroxrigs

(1) Crank up egg to 700;
(2) throw thick steak on;
(3) flip after 2-4 minutes (depending on thickness);
(4) flip again after 2-4 minutes (depending on thickness) and shut all vents and cap egg;
(5) let sit in the shut down grill for 2+ minutes and use meat thermometer to check temp of meat and either pull off or let sit longer;
(6) profit.

There will be slight variations depending on the thickness of your meat. If your steak is a think ribeye, for example, you'll want to keep closer to the 2 minutes per side. However, when I've got some really thick filets, it takes 4+ minutes per side. You get an incredible char and a perfect rare to mid-rare on the inside. I'm a bit disappointed when I go to Bones these days, as I can make better steaks for less at home.

Also, pizzas on the BGE are the bomb. Once you start making pizza on the BGE, you won't be able to order traditional delivery - they taste like garbage.

Sailor,

The guy who just googled 700 degree green egg steak recipes is missing 3 key steps and his times are 100% guaranteed to produce boot leather

Stand by . Looking for alternative channels for discourse

I have had BGE for maybe 20 years. Greatest item for grilling steaks and smoking hams/boston butt/ turkey known to man.

I get it to 650 and use a cast iron skillet. Ribeye with a lot of salt and pepper on it. Better than any steak I have ever had in a restaurant. 2 minutes each side then continue til you have the done ness you want. And the pizza is awesome.

You haven’t really lived until you’ve had one hit 900 degrees.

Also it will try and steal your soul when you look into the fire.

I’ve owned an egg for about 15 years. My favorite is grilled chicken. Juicy and crispy at the same time.

I’ve got a fellow dawg buddy who is a egg god. The stuff he grills is just unbelievable.

I have one at any place I hang my hat and on my big boat. They are what the Lord would use if he didn’t have help.

The BGE - a purchase I have never regretted, and just gets better with age. My latest is a 6 hour smoked bourbon glazed ham. Did one for Thanksgiving and another for Christmas.

Best ham in this life and maybe the next.

re: OT - Big Green Egg
You a-holes are going to talk me into buying a $900 contraption to apply fire to meat.

So how does it work if I need to whip up some hamburgers for dinner on a Friday that don’t require 900 degrees or smoking for 11 hours?
