Battle of the BBQ's - Big Green Egg or A Gas Grill?

Well you know how we feel about this one. Gas grills have their uses, but really, where is the fun in barbecuing on a gas grill? This short video gives a very brief overview of the differences between the BGE and a Gas Grill, but what we really like is his backyard set up. And the real star of the video is the swimming dog at the end of the clip!

Father's Day 2012 approaches and one thing things holds true for most dad's - even big boys love their toys! Check out this video from Father's Day 2011. That's one cool nest for the egg - the tactile pleasure of a nice Cypress table combined with high tech temperature monitoring and control. What more could a grilling dad ask for?

Green Egg Pizza Cones?

You may have heard of Purple People Eaters - but Green Egg Pizza Cones?

So, what's a pizza cone you ask?

Pizza fun for the entire family! Our set includes everything you need to make delicious pizza at hometwo pizza cones, two dough cutters and a crimper, plus a recipe and instructions booklet. Just roll out pizza cone dough and cut using the included cutter. Moisten the edges of the dough with water or egg wash and fold the dough in half. Run the crimper along the outer edge to seam the cone; allow to rest for 10-15 minutes. Slip dough on the pizza cone mold and bake 6-7 minutes until cone begins to brown. Remove from oven or grill and let cool for two minutes before removing from the mold. Place the cone into the pizza cone stand, fill with your favorite ingredients, return to oven and bake until golden and bubbly.Set features nonstick finish for easy cleanup. Hand wash with a mild dishwashing soap, rinse and dry immediately. Please use a mitt or glove for safety

Now, we personally haven't tried them on the Big Green Egg yet, but we bet they could very well be out of this world!

A Steel Kamado?

With the success of  "The Avengers" movie, we couldn't resist a little super hero reference - no not the "Man of Steel", but the Kamado made of steel! It's relatively cheap and we wonder how hot the outer surface gets to the touch, but it's always good to see the differences between the various Kamado options available. And we got a  kick out of the ingenious heat diffuser fashioned by the author of this video!

The Big Green Egg Family

Now that April 15th has passed (well OK, April 17th thanks to Washington DC) we can all reach into our pockets and be thankful as we count the change Uncle Sam has left us with. And while we start to save our pennies, we can dream of our next Big Green Egg purchase. Here's a snappy little video that runs through the complete Big Green Egg line. There is a Big Green Egg for almost everyone. Check it out and see!

St. Patrick's Day Corned Beef

St. Patrick's day is this weekend and what better way to celebrate than to smoke your own Corned Beef. Here is a video with a nifty recipe that is done in an oven type smoker, but it should translate nicely to the Big Green Egg. And the for those of you that live in a place where you can't have a charcoal barbecue, the smoker shown here presents an interesting alternative.

May the "Luck of the Irish" be with you!

Video Highlight 1/15/12

Happy New Year fellow Big Green Egger's. Hope your year is starting out well. Since the new year usually means fresh starts and innovative ideas, we though this video was worth sharing with you. We would still rather fork out the extra dollars for the real thing - but this is rather ingenious, don't you think? And if it doesn't work out, the inventor can always re-repurpose the components!

Give the gift that continues to give all year long. With the gift of a Chicago Steak Company Gift Club Membership, you can show someone you care time and time again. Choose from the many assorments in 6 or 12 month plans. Convenient. Simple. Perfect
