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 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.

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 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.

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.
