Cooking Center

This is my Texas Spring Chicken BBQ Cooking Center. The old gas grill on the end is nothing but a storage area now. The Big Green Egg is on the right and all you can see is the top part.

Favorite snack on the Big Green Egg

ABT's (Atomic Buffalo Turds) is my favorite snack on the BGE. They are Jalapenos that have been halved, cleaned of seeds and veins, filled with cream cheese and Little Smokey cocktail sausages, wrapped in bacon and smoked for about 35 to 40 minutes. They are fantastic with beer or rum 'n cokes or margaritas.

Salmon on the Egg

A couple of days ago I smoked a salmon filet on the Big Green Egg and it turned out great. I spread some honey on the meaty side of the salmon and sprinkled liberably with some Dizzy Pig Jamaican Firewalk seasoning. I pre-heated the Egg to 375° and threw in some smoking wood chips. I used the raised grid with a drip pan underneath. I put a cup of water in the drip pan, laid the salmon on the upper grid and let it cook/smoke for one hour. Then I shut the top and bottom vents and let the Egg cool slowly to 200° over the next two hours. I basted the salmon every thirty minutes with a honey & bourbon glaze and again when I took it off. Let it cool a few minutes and served it. Fantastic! Even my neighbors liked it and insist that we do it again soon.
