Eggs cannot be beat. Got one at my house, my dad has one at home and another at the lake house.

Just grilled some Brasstown Beef burgers with sauteed onions and swiss, and baked potatoes on the Egg tonight.

Brasstown Beef http://www.brasstownbeef.com/ is available in most Southeastern Whole Foods and many restaurants in N. Ga and Atlanta area.... I grew up camping, working and hunting on this farm and the beef cannot be beat!

Found this post from 2008. I'd like to try to make some chili on my egg. Has anyone tried that? Recipe? I guess I'll also need a cast iron pot and a plate setter.

Never heard of anyone trying it, not sure if there will be much of a flavor benefit.

Shouldn't need the plate setter, probably want the benefit of the radiant heat to cook that chili.

Smoked chilli is awesome, I've done it on my egg several times with good results.

I do chilli all the time on the egg. I will let you do your own recipe as every one has their special. I use a cast iron Dutch over. (lodge). I use the plate setter to make a good even cook. I enjoy it most when I take the lid off the dutch oven for the last 30 minitues. I sometimes add mesquite or whatever to create a little smoke. I cut back on the heat and let the chilli absorb the smoke. Keep a good eye and taste often as it is easy to have the smoke over power the chilli.

When done properly, you will have a killer chilli

Good luck

Thanks. That's what I had in mind. I thought I could get a little smokiness in the flavor if I cooked the chili in the egg with some wood chips.

My first week, I used the egg 5 times: grilled grouper, seared steaks, island burgers, cedar plank salmon, and smoked butt. I also used it to bake a loaf of bread. This thing is awesome.
I'm sure my use will probably slack off a bit... but right now I'm just enjoying my new toy.

You are off to a great start. Congratulations. What recipe did you use for the bread?

Google Big Green Egg forum and you will find a wealth of information.

I just used a peasant loaf recipe from a cookbook someone gave us for Christmas. I just used the egg as the oven. I actually did another loaf in the regular oven at the same time to compare -- really not much difference in flavor.
