Steven Rachel The BigGreenEgg cooker is a versatile Amado grill/smoker/oven, if you know how to use it well. Start with a full load of natural lump charcoal.

That means 5 pounds lit with a paraffin fire starter cube or an electric lighter. That is, raise the lid a few inches to release some heat, then lower it.

), have all the coals lit, open the bottom and top vents wide, and preheat the Egg to 600 to 700 degrees. Here’s where the genius of the Egg comes in: The juices drip on the coals, sending fragrant smoke up to the steak.

The lowered lid traps the smoke and seals in the moisture. Mix in 2 handfuls (1 to 1-1/2 cups) hardwood chips (for a regular size Egg, 3 handfuls for the XXL), which Bruce Shannon, BigGreenEgg cooking instructor, does not bother to soak ahead of time.

Then close the lid and adjust the vents to obtain the desired temperature (225 to 250 degrees). The fire spreads slowly to the periphery, giving you as much as 16 to 18 hours of heat and smoke on a single load of charcoal.

To further control the heat, invest in a BigGreenEgg Barbecue Guru. This battery-powered thermostat regulates the airflow through the bottom vent, allowing you to control the cooking temperature almost to the precise degree.

The folks at the store tried hard but were not able to talk me into the absolutely necessary stand or cart since I knew that it would sit just perfectly on some blocks until I had time to build a table for it and I have to tell you that it is very solid and has no chance of falling over or being blown away by the Oklahoma winds. I unloaded this off of a flatbed truck and moved it about 100 feet to where it is now with absolutely no help and if you are wondering why that's such a big deal then you probably do not realize that it's huge and weighs in at over 250 lbs.

Fortunately, I have a background in engineering and that along with my intense creative abilities helped to get that thing unloaded and set up without mishap. Once the BigGreenEgg (BGE) is in place, fill with lump charcoal to just above the bottom air holes.

Lump charcoal is real hardwood that has been burned or charred in a low oxygen environment. It is very fuel efficient and the amount you save in charcoal, will offset the high cost of these units.

To start the charcoal, I simply place a piece of fire starter down in the center of the coals and light it. I purchased a stainless steel wood chip box, filled it with wood chips and set it just off center to hopefully create the extra smoke that I wanted.

Put the plate setter in place to create the indirect cooking environment required for smoking. The plate setter is the ceramic piece that goes into the egg over the charcoal and forces the heat from the coals to be directed to the sides of the smoker.

The heat then travels up to the dome and down creating the indirect cooking method perfectly for smoking meat. Once the thermometer gets within about 10-15 degrees of your target temperature, I recommend closing the top and bottom vents to a “just barely open” configuration.

It's basically a module or brain connected to a blower which blows air onto the coals (via the intake vent at the bottom) as needed. It knows what is needed due to a temperature probe that is connected to the grate with an alligator clip.

With this setup, I can walk away from the BGE and go to town, go to work, go to bed, whatever, knowing that it will maintain the temperature of the smoker for as long as it has coals to burn. The Flame Boss is the way to go, if you want to absolutely put your ceramic cooker on autopilot.

Chefs/restaurants growing their own fruits, vegetables, microgreens, herbs and edible flowers. It’s nice to be able to go to the garden and pick something that you grew and see the end product on the plate.

I’m from Buffalo and it’s hard to find good wings in Florida. For family I like cooking Dijon encrusted rack of lamb with garlic mashed potato and sautéed asparagus.

My parents would always take us to summer outings on Lake Erie where their friends would all get together and BBQ. My dad’s friend was amazing chef and would cook spit fired lamb and the best rib eye steak I ever had.

I knew then I wanted to be a chef and create amazing food like he did. Today he shares with us, Pan Seared Grouper with White Wine, Lemon Butter Sauce with Artichoke, Heirloom Tomato and Capers and just a little about his background.

Olive oil Chopped garlic 2 tablespoons Fine diced Shallots 2 tablespoon Capers 4-6 tablespoons or more Baby heirloom tomatoes quartered 1/2 cup 1/4 or halved artichokes 1 12oz can Fresh lemon juice 1-lemon White wine 1/4-1/2 cup Chopped fresh basil 1 tablespoon Room temp butter 1/2-1 stick or more if you want. Sauté garlic and shallot in olive oil to lightly brown then add white wine and lemon juice and deg laze pan and reduce by half.

In a medium-sized skillet heat olive oil, add grouper and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown, flip and cook on the second side for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown. Once both sides are a crisp golden brown add sauce to skillet and simmer until aromatic about a minute.

The word “prime” is NOT referring to the category of meat determined by the USDA. Prime Rib is just a common term for the cut of meat from the cow (i.e.

The USDA grades meats in three main categories, select, choice or prime. So you can have three different kinds of Prime Rib: Most grocery stores don't even carry actual Prime-Prime Rib and most of it ends up at restaurants.

Slather in olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme. Setup for an indirect cook, place setter legs up, drip pan, grate on.

Depending on your timing situation, you can pull and wrap and put meat in a cooler, or just let it rest on the counter (at least 30 min) While resting, fire the egg up to 500-550 degrees and roast for another 10-15 minutes to create a great outer crust.
