Burgers in the Snow!

So today we decided to make some burgers on our Big Green Egg Mini Max. It was 35 degrees, Foggy and kinda rainy. But doesnt that just makes it more fun?

I find that ground chuck makes the best burgers, moist, meaty and full of flavor.

Unlike traditional grills where you cook over the open flame the BGE allows for a “reverse sear”. This is where you cook the meat indirectly at a lower temp. Just before they’re done, take them off the grill, place a cast iron griddle on the BGE and let it heat up to 500 degrees. When the griddle reaches 500 degrees, place pats of butter on it then the burgers. Keep them on there for 60 seconds per side.This will give them a nice char and be the best burger you ever ate.

My new Big Green Egg Mini Max

I picked up my newest BGE today and I couldn’t be happier. It is a great compliment to my large BGE. Today we cooked Pizza, cauliflower and an awesome dessert of pizza dough with sugar and salted caramel.

Cooking on the BGE reminds me of my childhood when my parents would go camping and cook over an open fire, this gives food the same flavor. It just can’t be beat!
