tear drop or green egg

Postby 48fordcoe » Wed Dec 05, 2012 6:13 pm

I can't leave home with out both of them . I got the green egg about 3 weeks before I bought the tear drop. Its too big to take with me .. the food on the green egg I is so good and I'm not a good cook. i think ever camping place needs to supply them..

You'd have to ask Dr Seuss.

But he'd probably get confused with green eggs.

Mike...

P.S. 48fordcoe, did you consider getting the mini for camping?

Forgive me, but what is a "green egg"?

I'm facing the same dilemma. It's so bad I'm thinking about buying a big steel keg (same theory) that plugs into a trailer hitch receiver just to take camping....


Love the BGE!!!

I brought the Lg to IRG a while back, I have pics but I can't find them, I BBQd a brisket for the potluck. I made an adapter for my DigiQ so that I can run it off my riding mower battery. The Lg is a bit cumbersome to bring (anywhere) so we got the Med for camping. It's still awkward, but manageable.

Here is the fleet: I figure I'll get a Sm and Mini eventually, just to complete the collection.

Smalls are too small. Can't fit a whole chicken :(. A guy on YouTube did a mod on his so he could, but if I can't do a brisket or butt it doesn't do much good.

Love my egg, but it does have se limitations. Portability being the worst :(

What are you saying Rocky? That I should get a green egg instead of my barrel smoker?

Depends what you want to cook...and for how long.

I did a thick porterhouse tonight...550 degrees for about 3 minutes on each side...perfect medium rare.

Kamodo cookers ROCK....Low and slow or hot and fast. Very versatile. And I still have charcoal left for tomorrow...and the day after...

Barrel smokers are fine (UDS), but all they can do is smoke. I was listening to the guy at Costco giving his speil on the Trager (pellet pooper). He was talking about grilling on it, but I seriously doubt that it can get to temps high enough for a decent sear. The beauty of an egg (or any Kamado cooker) is that you can smoke low-n-slow and sear at high temps. Though I haven't done it, folks bake in it. Pizzas are popular because you can get it up to high temps, and the dome mimic a brick oven.

My wife is very disturbed to see this thread. I've been lusting after a BGE or a Primo kamado cooker for about a year or so. My brother has a BGE, and even though he can't cook generally, he cranks out amazing briskest, turkeys, pork butts, ribs, etc. on his BGE.

Here's mine. I've considered trying to come up with a way to bring the #1, but it's really heavy for me to move around. :) They cook wonderfully.

I'm not a great cook either. My K's are very forgiving. :)
