Big green egg
Just got the large version with a cast iron grate and a plate setter. It's bitter sweet as my mom bought it from life insurance from my dad that passed a couple of months ago.
He would have wanted me to have it though.
Anyone else an egger?
Sorry for the loss of your dad. Back many years ago my dad got a full size one from japan. It made the best steaks. The top was quite heavy to lift. It only lasted about 5 years, at which point all of the brick inside fell apart. He probably didn't take care of it - he left it out all winter. Enjoy.
I started a thread on these, IIRC..(phantom memory../ :hmm:)
Edit: Yeah- here it is: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f34/la...called-973110/
Edit: I hope this doesnt sound awkward or wrong, but I find it cool somehow that your father has helped make it possible for you to perhaps keep his memory alive from an additional perspective. :)
Sorry about your dad. I have always wanted a smoker and the Big Green Egg looks like one of the best. Now, make some pulled pork in his memory!
I have a BGE. I love it, wife hates it. She likes gas. No "smokey" taste.
I used mine last night. I did a tri-tip for dinner.
The hard part, for me, is figuring out which rub to use.
They are expensive. But they are also quite good. IMHO.
My wife wanted a gas grill for the same reason. But using it last night it doesn't have the burnt charcoal taste. It burns pretty clean. Thanks for the condolences. My dad would be really happy about this.
I had a good friend who has since passed away, who swore by these things...He cooked practically every meal on one, he even cooked some awesome pizza on it.
Someone mentioned charcoal...He never used charcoal, he only used real hickory.
Also Green Egg has some devout followers and they have their own forum where they share recipes, tips, etc...plus they have get-togethers where they all bring their green eggs and cook, and share food. You should look them up.
