Big Green Egg Chicken Wing Recipe

chicken wings copyChicken wings, buffalo wings, or just WINGS. What ever you call them, cooking wings on the Big Green Egg is both delicious and easy. Cooking chicken wings on the Big Green Egg can be done two different ways. My favorite way to cook chicken wings is indirect with the platesetter in the Big Green Egg.

First you want to set up your Big Green Egg with the platesetter in and set the temperature at 400*. I like to use the 2 tier rack for extra space when cooking chicken wings. The swing rack adds cooking space to the Big Green Egg and is easy to use.

The key to crispy skin on the chicken wings is to get the moisture out of the skin. To do this you need to unwrap the chicken wings, place on a platter and put in the fridge uncovered for a few hours or overnight. After you take the chicken wings out of the fridge it’s time for the rub. I like to use Tsunami Spin from Dizzy Pig. If you plan on using a buffalo wing sauce there is no need to season before you grill the wings on the Big Green Egg.

Place the Chicken wings on the Big Green Egg and cook indirect with the platesetter at 400* for 45min to 1 hour. Make sure to check the internal temperature of the chicken wings. You want the chicken wings to be 165* and the juices to run clear.

After you remove the chicken wings from the Big Green Egg toss in your favorite buffalo wing sauce or enjoy the wings as they are.

I’m sure you will find that chicken wings are so delicious and easy to prepare on the Big Green Egg, you will never order chicken wings out again.

Big Green Egg Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin on the Big Green Egg is not only delicious it is easy to prepare as well. When making pork tenderloin on the Big Green Egg you must decide on which method you would like to use, direct or indirect. Both methods for pork tenderloin work well, but prefer to grill my pork tenderloin direct on the Big Green Egg.

To grill your pork tenderloin you need to set up your Big Green Egg for direct cooking. Get your fire going and stabilize your Big Green Egg at 350*.

For the best results, take your pork tenderloin out of the fridge a few hours before you grill it on your Big Green Egg. Season the outside of the pork tenderloin with your favorite rub.

Place the pork tenderloin on the Big Green Egg and grill on all sides. Keep turning your pork tenderloin until it reaches an internal temperature of 145*. Once you remove your pork tenderloin from the Big Green Egg let it rest for about 10min. before you slice and serve.

I think once you try pork tenderloin on the Big Green Egg it will make it on your dinner menu more often.

How to Make Pizza on the Big Green Egg

Pizza is great on the Big Green Egg. I know some people that bought a Big Green Egg for one reason, and that reason is… To Make PIZZA!!

The Big Green Egg does such a great job on pizza that you will think you got from a restaurant. With the Big Green Egg’s ability to maintain high temperatures with ease and the wood fire the pizza just turns out amazing.

To make pizza on your Big Green Egg you need to decide what kind of dough you are going to use. Many people will make the dough from scratch, and that works great, but what I have found easier is to get my dough from a local pizza restaurant. I just went down to my favorite pizza shop and ask if I could buy some of the dough they make. Most of the pizza places have the dough measured out to make pizza of certain diameters, this make it much easier to make a pizza to fit your stone.

To set up your Big Green Egg for pizza is simple. Get your fire started and once it gets up to about 350* up in your platesetter in the legs down postion with the pizza stone on top. Stablize the Big Green Egg at 550*.

I have found that 550* to be the magic temperature for cooking pizza. It’s just the right temperature as to not burn the crust and still grt the top just right.

Now that the Big Green Egg is ready to go it’s time to get your pizza ready for the grill. Roll out the dough or toss it if you can (I Can’t) and place it on your pizza peel, I like to use the Norpro 5683 Bamboo Pizza Paddle. Cover the dough with a thin layer of sauce. Add the cheese and any toppings you like. Make sure you precook any of your meat toppings. Your pizza will not be on the Egg long enough to cook meat items.

Now is time to cook some PIZZA!!

Before you place your pizza on your Big Green Egg sprinkle a little corn meal on the pizza stone to keep your pizza from sticking. After the pizza is on the Big Green Egg close the lid and wait 7 minutes. Open the lid and check to see how it looks. I have found it take about 7-9 minutes at 550* for the pizza to turn out perfect. Now use your pizza peel and gently slide it under the pizza and remove it from the Big Green Egg.

The best thing to remember is have fun. There is no perfect science when it comes to making pizza. Experiment, try new things and enjoy making pizza on your Big Green Egg.

Big Green Egg Porterhouse Recipe

Big Green Egg Porterhouse Recipe

 

This is one of my favorite recipes. You just can’t beat the taste of a great steak when it comes off the Big Green Egg.

Start off with some good quality porterhouse steaks. When you choose your steaks for the Big Green Egg make sure you get only USDA choice or prime steaks. This will ensure that the the steaks are tender and have the wonderful taste that your looking for in a great steak. As for the thickness of the porterhouse steaks I suggest you look for steaks between 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches thick. If you choose steaks that are too thin, they will get overdone on the inside before they develop a nice crust on the outside.

After you get home with your porterhouse steaks place them on a platter. Drizzle the porterhouse steaks on both sides with a good olive oil. Sprinkle the steaks with kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Let the porterhouse steaks come to room temp.

Now its time to fire up your Big Green Egg. Get the temperature up to 700 degrees. Once the temperature is stable, it’s time to grill your steaks.

I have found that as long as your steaks are about an 1 1/2″ thick, you can follow the same cooking procedure.

Place the steaks on the grill.

Grill for 4 min. with the lid down.

Burp the Egg.

Flip the steaks over and cook for another 4 min. with the lid down.

Remove the porterhouse steaks from your Big Green Egg

Let the steaks rest for 10 min. and then enjoy.
