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 BBQ Guru


The Big Green Egg BBQ Guru is a life saver for overnight cooks. If you have ever done an overnight cook on a pork butt you now the feeling you get at 3 o’clock in the morning, wondering if the temperature of your Big Green Egg is still the same as when you left it, or ever worse if the fire went out.

The Big Green Egg BBQ Guru is a like a mini computer that you hook up to your Big Green Egg to control the temperature of your Egg. This thing is just amazing. It has two probes, one that goes into the food you are preparing, and one that you attach to the grill grate to monitor the temperature of the Big Green Egg. Now the cool part, the BBQ Guru has a small fan the you place on the draft door on the bottom of the Big Green Egg. With the information the BBQ Guru receives from the temperature probe, it then controls the fan to blow air into your Big Green Egg to control the temperature. This thing is so accurate it will hold the Temperature of your Big Green Egg any where from 32*F/0*C to 475*F/246*C with +/- 2* accuracy.

Besides how well the Big Green Egg BBQ Guru works, what impressed me the most about the BBQ Guru is just how well it’s made. The control box is constructed from powder coated machined aluminum and has bright easy to read red scrolling led lights on the display. With most products made for plastic now a days, it’s very refreshing to see a high quality product that is made to last for years to come.

Bottom line is I’m very happy with my Big Green Egg BBQ Guru. It may have been a little pricy, but after using it for the first time I knew it was well worth the money spent. I now do overnight cooks all the time and never lose a bit of sleep.

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.

Big Green Egg Veal Chops

Big Green Egg Veal ChopVeal chops are wonderful on the Big Green Egg. If you have never had veal chops before give them a try, it may be a little pricey, but it’s well worth it.

When picking out your veal chops make sure to look for nice thick chops at least 1 1/2″ to 1 3/4″ thick. Chops that are too thin will not grill well and dry out inside.

After you get your veal chops home you can let them rest on the counter to let them come to room temperature before you put them on the Big Green Egg or you can marinate them in a marinade of your choice. I make a simple marinade with equal parts olive oil and lemon juice. I them add in cracked pepper and chopped garlic. I marinade the veal chops in the fridge overnight and take out a few hours before I grill them so they can come to room temperature.

It’s now time to fire up the Big Green Egg. We are going to grill the veal chops over direct heat and at a high temperature as to sear the out side of the veal chops and seal in the juices. Get your Big Green Egg stable at 500*. After your Big Green Egg is stable place your veal chops on the grid. We are going to grill the veal chops for 6 min on each side for medium rare. Once you remove your veal chops are done let them rest and redistribute the juices for 8-10 min. before you serve.

Veal chops on the Big Green Egg are you of my favorite meals and I’m sure it will be one of yours as well.

Big Green Egg Rib Roast, Standing Rib Roast, Prime Rib

If you have never tried to cook a rib roast aka prime rib, don’t worry, a rib roast is one of the easiest meals you can prepare. You will find that making your rib roast on the the Big Green Egg is not only easy, but also tastes fantastic.

To start out go to your local butcher and get your rib roast. A good rule of thumb for determining the size rib roast you need is every rib on the roast will feed two people. Now that you know the size rib roast you need, ask the butcher to cut the bone off and tie it back on. This will make it much easier to slice your rib roast after you roasted it on the Big Green Egg.

Now that you have your rib roast home it’s time to season it. Rub the outside of your rib roast with olive oil. Cover the outside of the roast with your favorite dry rub. Once you have seasoned your rib roast let it come to room temperature.

Set up your Big Green Egg for indirect cooking and preheat your egg to a temperature of 250*.

Place your rib roast on the Big Green Egg and cook to an internal temperature of 110*. Once you get to 110* raise the temperature of the Big Green Egg to 450* and continue to cook until you get to 130*. After you remove let the rib roast rest for 15min tented with foil.

Hope you enjoy.

Big Green Egg Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb

Big Green Egg Leg of LambI just love leg of lamb, it’s one of my favorite meals, and with the Big Green Egg it only gets better. The most important part of making your leg of lamb is to remember to start with a good quality leg of lamb. The kind that I prefer is American lamb as opposed to the lamb from New Zealand.

After you have chosen your leg of lamb ask your butcher to bone and roll it for you.

Place the leg of lamb in a simple marinate of equal parts olive oil and lemon juice and place covered in the fridge for two hours. After you remove your leg of lamb from the fridge drain off the marinate and pat the leg of lamb dry. Season the outside of the leg of lamb with cracked pepper and fresh rosemary.

Preheat your Big Green Egg with the plate setter in the legs up position to 300*. After your Big Green Egg has preheated and the temperature is stable it’s time to roast your leg of lamb. Roast your leg of lamb to an internal temperature of 140*. The amount of time it takes to cook the leg of lamb on your Big Green Egg will vary depending on the size og the leg of lamb.

To monitor the internal temperature of your leg of lamb I like to use a remote temperature probe like the Maverick Wireless BBQ Thermometer Set – Maverick ET732. Once you start using one you will find it hard to cook without one. I use mine every time I cook anything that requires me to monitor the internal temperature to make sure it’s done properly.
