The Big Green Egg is a kamodo style smoker that can also act as a traditional charcoal grill. It uses all natural lump charcoal (no briquettes here) to very precisely smoke or grill your favorite foods.
My lovely better half had mentioned the Big Green Egg, but I always thought charcoal was too time intensive for our busy schedule. Luckily, a couple of friends swear by their eggs, and I once I got more information - the choice was clear.
So, on my 41st birthday, I got to assemble our Large BGE =)
After seasoning it properly, I smoked a pork shoulder. It was amazing, sorry, no pics of the first smoke.
For thanksgiving I thought a traditionally smoked turkey would be a good idea. It was.
Today? My first brisket. Texas style. Follow us on Facebook for a sneak peek at how it goes =)
Two months later, I'm about 8 meals in on the Big Green Egg - and I'm 100% sold. Whether you choose the BGE, a Kamodo, or other type of hybrid grill/smoker - lose the gas, learn a bit, and start cooking!
