We also have one of the largest selections of EggCessories in the area. With the outdoor living season in full swing, now is the time to place your order in time to savor all the savory summer recipes that you can prepare on your EGG.

Parmesan Grilled Corn with Roasted Garlic, Basil, and Parsley Banner Butter

Banner Butter Roasted Corn BGE copy

Recipe adapted from Food and Wine

Banner Butter is made with patiently-cultured cream from hormone-free, grass-fed cows with no added flavoring. Banner Butter is available online and at selected locations.

Ingredients

  • 6 Tablespoons of Roasted, Garlic, Basil, and Parsley Banner Butter
  • ½ cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 ears of corn
  • Vegetable oil, for the grill
  • Kitchen twine

Instructions

Light your EGG. Set to 400ºF/204ºC. While waiting, take your Roasted Garlic Basil and Parsley Banner Butter out of the fridge to soften and grate ½ cup of parmesan cheese. Pull husks back from each ear of corn and remove silks. Using kitchen string, tie husks together at the end of each ear to form handle. Lightly brush your EGG with oil. Grill corn over a medium/hot flame, turning frequently for about 5 minutes (or partially cooked). Brush with softened Banner Butter and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Continue grilling, rotating frequently, and brushing with more butter until corn is a deep brown and tender. Serve with remaining parmesan cheese.

Serves 4-6

Peach and Blueberry Summer Pie

Two summer favorites in one delicious pie.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp allspice
  • 4-5 peeled, sliced fresh peaches
  • 1½ cups blueberries
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 pie crusts, homemade or store-bought
  • Extra sugar and cinnamon for topping

Instructions

  • Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 400°F/204°C.
  • Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon and allspice together in a large bowl. Gently fold in blueberries and peaches.
  • Pour the filling into an uncooked pie crust. Cut the butter into small pieces and distribute evenly over the top of the filling.
  • Use the second pie crust to create a lattice and cover the pie. Lightly brush the lattice with one beaten egg. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the pie.
  • Cook at 400°F for 30 minutes; reduce the heat to 375°F for an additional 25 minutes.
  • Let the pie set for about 4 hours before eating. Enjoy!

You can prepare these easy and delicious holiday favorites on an Egg. Take a look and learn why this is the only outdoor cooker you will ever need:

Grill | Sear the perfect steaks, pork chops or burgers on the EGG. High temperature “steak house” grilling – even at 750º F / 400º C – is quick and easy! Using the two dampers for accurate control, you can lower the heat to a more moderate temperature for other grilled foods. Fish and seafood turn out moist and tender with a flavor-packed crust unmatched by other grills.

Oven | Using the indirect cooking method with a Plate Setter, the Big Green Egg bakes bread, pizza, casseroles, cobblers and pies better than your kitchen oven … you may never cook indoors again! The Big Green Egg retains heat and moisture so well that foods don’t dry out! Poultry, lamb, beef and vegetables are naturally tastier because the juices and flavors stay locked inside.

Smoker | The insulating ceramics of the Big Green Egg allow you to precisely control the temperature even at low heat. A controllable 200 to 350°F / 93 to 177°C gives succulent results with turkey, ham, lamb, chicken, ribs or any of your favorite cuts, infusing them with the aromatic wood smoke flavor. Want to slow cook at low heat for sixteen to eighteen hours … no problem!

Texas-Style Brisket

TExas Brisket

Recipe courtesy of Matt Pittman of Meat Church. From the Big Green Egg website.

This brisket is wonderful alone or served with soft tortillas and taco toppings.

Ingredients:

  • One 10 to 12 lb (4.5 to 5.5 kg) whole packer brisket (Choice or higher)

Instructions:

  • Trim the excess fat and silver skin from the brisket. Also, remove any “hard” pieces of fat as they will not render off during the cooking process. Trim the fat off the bottom of the brisket leaving only ¼ in (6 mm) fat. Apply rub to all sides of the meat liberally … I mean liberally! Cover the brisket and place in the refrigerator to marinate overnight.
  • Mix the rub ingredients (listed below) in a large bowl. This mix will make more than you need for one brisket; store the remainder in an airtight container.
  • Set your EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 250°F/121°C.
  • Place the brisket on the grid, fat-side down – this is my preference, but highly debated in the barbecue world. Fat-side up is fine if that is your preference, but fat down is what many competitors do as it gives you a much better presentation. When the meat reaches an internal temperature of 160°F/71°C, double wrap the brisket in non-waxed butcher paper or aluminum foil – this is what we call the Texas crutch. The bark will have formed nicely by this point.
  • Continue to smoke the brisket until the meat is “probe tender,” which means when you probe it there is no resistance … think of a toothpick in a cake. Each piece of meat is different but this will likely be at an internal temperature of between 200-202°F/93-94°C. Remove the brisket from the EGG, wrap in a towel and place in a cooler for at least one hour. This will allow the juices to re-distribute in the meat. Unwrap the brisket and slice against the grain.

Brisket Rub Ingredients

  • 1 cup (240 ml) coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 cup (240 ml) non-iodized salt
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) granulated garlic
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) onion powder
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) paprika

pulled pork sandwichPulled Pork Sandwiches

Recipe courtesy of Dr. BBQ from the Big Green Egg website.

Ingredients:

  • One 7 to 8 pound pork butt, fat cap trimmed off
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Big Time BBQ Rub (Recipe below)
  • ½ cup apple juice
  • 2 cups Dr. BBQ’s Carolina Barbecue sauce (Recipe below)
  • 12 hamburger buns

Instructions:

  • Rub the meat with the oil and then sprinkle liberally with the rub. Put in the refrigerator for at least a half hour and up to 12 hours.
  • Set the EGG for indirect cooking at 275°F/135°C using hickory and cherry smoking wood for flavor. Put the butt in the EGG and cook until the internal temperature is 160°F/71°C;  this should take 6 to 8 hours. Lay out a big double piece of heavy duty aluminum foil and put the pork butt in the middle. As you begin to close up the package pour the apple juice over the top of the butt and then seal the package, taking care not to puncture it put it back in the EGG and cook until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 195°F/91°C;  this should take another 2 to 3 hours.
  • Remove the package from the EGG to a baking sheet. Open the top of the foil to let the steam out and let it rest for ½ hour. Using heavy neoprene gloves or a pair of tongs and a fork transfer the meat to a big pan. It will be very tender and hard to handle. Discard the juices as they will be quite fatty. Shred the meat, discarding the fat and bones; it should just fall apart. Continue to pull the meat until it’s shredded enough to make a sandwich. Add 1 cup of the sauce and mix well. Reserve the additional sauce for serving on the side. Serve on fluffy white buns topped with cole slaw.

*Makes 12 sandwiches

Big Time BBQ Rub Ingredients

From our family at Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio to yours, this recipe is one for the file box, as it’s a real crowd pleaser!!

Fire Grilled Steak with Steakhouse butter

Photo courtey of The Big Green Egg.

Fire Grilled Steak with Steakhouse Butter:

  • Ingredients:

One-half cup butter, softened

Three tbsp finely minced shallot or red onion

One clove of garlic, finely minced

One tbsp finely minced parsley

One tbsp finely minced fresh thyme

Two tbsp of your favorite vinegar

A sprinkle or two of salt and lots of freshly ground pepper

Four thick New York strip loin, sirloin or ribeye steaks

A sprinkle or two of sea salt and freshly ground pepper on each steak

  • Instructions

Stir all the ingredients together until thoroughly combined. Scoop the butter into a large re-sealable bag. Press the butter and form a thick log shape, roughly four inches long. Tightly roll up the bag, shaping the butter into a perfect round log. Refrigerate or freeze for several hours or overnight until the butter is firm enough to slice.

Set the EGG for direct (no convEGGtor) at 600°F/316°C with a Cast Iron Cooking Grid. Just before you begin to cook the steaks, pat them dry and season them heavily with salt and pepper. Position the steaks on the grid at a forty-five angle to the grid lines. After a few minutes, turn them ninety-degrees to get the perfect steakhouse grill marks. Flip and repeat. Continue cooking until the steaks reach the doneness you prefer. You may press the steaks with your finger to gauge doneness; they stiffen as they cook through. This will take some time to master but it’s a skill worth cultivating! Top each steak with a thick slice of steakhouse butter; serve, share and enjoy! Serves four.

The Big Green Egg will exceed all of your expectations for culinary perfection … and with six convenient sizes from which to choose, we have a Big Green Egg to fit any lifestyle or budget!

You can grill, smoke, oven bake and roast a plethora of mealtime masterpieces throughout the entire year. Not sure if one of these incredible culinary tools is what you need? Let’s take a look at the prime outdoor living season’s more popular uses of the Big Green Egg:

  • May  – Mother’s Day – what better way to honor Mom than with a full day without her having to cook any part of the big meal for the day? Stuffed mushroom caps, beef tenderloin, roasted squash, peppers and asparagus, baked potatoes and savory apple tart for dessert.
  • May – Memorial Day – Ahhh the first big BBQ of the season!! Roasted Corn Salsa, Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers, Hamburgers and Hotdogs for the whole crowd.
  • June – Graduation parties for all levels of education advancement: Preschool, Kindergarten, Elementary, Junior High, High School and College…all of these milestone events deserve a celebration where you can socialize and not feel like you’re being rushed at the restaurant. Parties at home are the best and preparing finger foods has never been easier. Who doesn’t like pizza, chicken nuggets, Buffalo wings, bacon wrapped tater tots or onion rings? Of course there’s Mac N’Cheese too!
  • June – Father’s Day – How impressed would Dad be if his family cooked an entire meal just for him on his Big Green Egg? Full rack of ribs, baked beans and scalloped potatoes. And, if he doesn’t already own one, Father’s Day is the perfect time to give him one!
  • July – Independence Day always includes the biggest family cookout of the year! Barbecued chicken legs, grilled corn on the cob, roasted sweet potatoes and steamed veggies. Don’t forget the fireworks!
