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.

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.
