Great-looking spread Dyal! I'll be very interested to see the creative solution you come up with to deal with the greasy veggies. Frankly I haven't been making BCC lately. I found that a rotisserie grilled chicken on my gasser is moister than a BCC. And that Big Bob Gibson's barbecue chicken I made for my first run on the Egg, was the moistest chicken I've ever had. So is a BCC on the BGE even moister than some of the spatchcock chickens you've made? Also I'll tell you some of the names they have for the different rubs and barbecue sauces just crack me up. It's fun just looking at them all in the store to see the creative names people have come up with for their concoctions.
Good luck perfecting your recipe for the Eggtoberfest. It's really funny how your perspective changes. Last year at this time I was shaking my head in amusement at the idea of all of the Eggheads going to a festival. It is hard to explain, but I wasn't laughing at them, it was more I was laughing at the concept of that many enthusiastic eggheads all in one place at the same time. Now a year later I find myself owning an Egg and now I understand that enthusiasm myself. Suddenly I am very "jealous" of all the folks going to the Eggtoberfest. It just isn't in the cards for me this year and it cost me quite a bit to get down to Atlanta now that I don't have family living there. Now I don't want to sound greedy. I am just so thrilled to have my new Egg and I truly enjoy using it. I will be looking forward to reports from the various folks from here that are lucky enough to go in October.
I prefer the spatchcock method, but I was feeling lazy and wanted to cook the whole meal altogether....that's why I chose to do it this way this time...plus, I was wanting to see how the veggies ended up. I've been waging to give it a try since seeing Brad do this awhile back. Next time, with what I have in mind, I'll be able to spatchcock and baste the veggies with the drippings. I have that on the menu tomorrow night.
Brad, yup, those are breadcrumbs. My wife ate all my Ritz Crackers, so I had to use bc instead.
beercuer, I'm going for a souped up hashbrown casserole. Gonna call it "Hellacious Hashbrown Casserole"...
This one had green chiles, pepperjack and Jimmy Dean hot sausage in it. I am going to make some adjustments though before the eggfest. If I get the courage enough, I may enter it in their recipe competition.
