  • Vegetarians, avert your eyes!

    Fired up the Big Green Egg again this weekend to cook fajitas for a close group of friends.  By cook fajitas, I mean cook lots of fajitas.  We picked up a whopping ten pounds of flank steak from Amazon Fresh and cooked it all.  If that wasn’t enough, we also cooked up some chicken fajitas; […]

  • The Egg: It gets hot!

    Made fajitas tonight. Got the Big Green Egg up to 750°F. That is all. 🙂

  • Brisket post-mortem

    The brisket from yesterday was well received by the 10 people in attendance. I had six people here that have lived at one point or another in Texas (some as recently as two weeks ago!), and everyone says it tasted authentic. I cooked it to an internal temp of 170°F, and I actually don’t think […]

  • Notes from the morning

    So, since I’ve been up since 4:30am cooking brisket, I wanted to jot down a few notes from the morning. First, there seems to be a racoon living in our backyard. He was drinking from the pond while I was waiting on the BBQ to heat up. Second, there’s nothing on TV at 4:30am on […]

  • 5:24am and I’m awake

    This could be my earliest blog post ever. Already been awake for an hour today. And, no, this is definitely not normal for me. However, the [Big Green Egg](http://www.biggreenegg.com/) is at a happy 220°F, and a 9.5lb brisket has been going for 25 minutes. On at 5:00am, plan to take it off at 6:30pm. Flip […]

  • Big Green Egg: Pork Loin Roast

    Today, I fired up the [Big Green Egg](http://www.biggreenegg.com/) for its inaugural run. We tried a recipe off the BGE website – [Mr. Toad’s Pork Loin](http://www.biggreenegg.com/recipes/pork/mrToadsPorkLoin.htm). I had a 5 pound pork loin roast, followed the directions in the recipe, and threw it in the egg at 300 degrees. About 3 hours later, the pork hit […]

  • New Grill! I’m an “egg”head!

    After reading several reviews on the web, and getting inspired by a [co-worker](http://www.seanalexander.com/2006/09/05/LaborDayBBQMeetsTechWizardry.aspx), I decided to buy a new grill. And I’ve eschewed the propane tank forever. I bought a [Big Green Egg](http://www.biggreenegg.com/) from [Thompson’s Hearth & Home](http://www.thompsonshearth.com/bbq.htm) in Issaquah. This thing is a beast! Tips the scales at over 140 pounds, and I can’t […]
