Cheeseburger Sliders

Hamburgers are a weekend tradition around our house and something the entire family enjoys, which is pretty odd with my three kids and their different tastes. I noticed with my typical 1/2 pound burgers, I ended up cutting them in half for some and wasting more meat. So, I’ve now switched to making slider sized […]

Margherita Pizza with Homemade Crust on Big Green Egg

I’ve tried many different pizza’s on the Big Green Egg (BGE) and think I now have a new favorite. I must admit (embarrassingly), until I found Susie Davis’ recipe for a margherita pizza using homemade pizza dough, I have always bought the dough from a local grocery store (pre-made). From this point forward, if I […]

Grilled Garlic Beef Tenderloin stuffed with Bacon and Cheese

I was recently inspired at my nieces’ wedding reception, where they served up a great medium rare beef tenderloin and had a couple of different dipping sauces. My thought was, why not stuff a beef tenderloin and capture the taste inside the meat? I was pretty nervous about the thought of trying something different with […]

Grilled Southwestern Pork Tenderloin

Ever wonder why you’ve waited so long to try something? Well, I sure have waited far too long to try grilling a pork tenderloin on the Big Green Egg. Pork Tenderloin is a much different type of cook than pork shoulder or boston butt considering you typically cook at much higher temps and you have […]

Chicken and Steak Grilled Fajitas

Depending on the area you reside, you may or may not have pre-seasoned fajita meat in your local grocery store. I’m not one to knock this quick fix for fajitas; however, if you have a little extra time and the right ingredients, making your own marinade will yield a much better end result. In Texas, […]

BBQ Quesadillas

When you think of leftovers, typically you don’t think of anything too exciting. We had leftover Beer Can Chicken (BCC) and Brisket from our Labor Day weekend and I wanted to throw something together that was different than simply re-heating the meat (even though that would have been good too). I don’t really spend too […]

Beer Can Chicken

We had several people over for a pre-Labor Day dinner and planned on brisket and pork ribs; however, one special request came from a dinner guest to include chicken. I recently read a fellow bloggers post, Griffin’s Grub, about Beer Can Chicken (BCC) and I decided to follow their awesome recipe using Dizzy Pig Swamp […]

Sizzling Steak

Grilling a steak house quality steak had always been something I hoped would be possible, yet never seemed to quite hit the mark. When grilling a steak under normal circumstances, I would have cooked around 400 degrees Fahrenheit which left me with a dry and generally over cooked piece of meat. In most steak houses, […]

Grilled Chicken Breast

I’m hesitant to even write about grilled chicken, because it is one of those staples that we make all the time.  In fact, when I finish cooking other meals, I like to stabilize the egg at the prime chicken grilling temp and throw them on…just to enjoy later in the week.  When I first started […]

Grilled Cheeseburgers

I’ve yet to write about good old grilling on the Big Green Egg and thought it would be beneficial for those of you who may use my posts as a recipe guide.  Grilling hamburgers on a Friday night is a family tradition that started with my Dad when I was younger.  In fact, this tradition […]
