I believe in making the most of available space, whether it’s storing herbs, stacking pans … or cooking in a Big Green Egg. The Egg has a big dome that normally has nothing in it. Most ovens have two shelves, why not the Egg as well?
I watched Jamie Oliver’s “American Road Trip” a couple of weeks ago. One recipe that stood out was when he cooked baked beans cowboy-style whilst camping in the great outdoors. Looked great with strips of steak seared on a cast iron pan over a campfire.
So we decided to made our own version at home … very simple and definitely several notches above your standard tin of baked beans.
Smoked cheeses, vegetables and nuts can add extra nuance and flavour to a meal. And it doesn’t need a large, dedicated piece of equipment. It’s surprisingly easy to do with a Big Green Egg, standard covered BBQ or similar device.

Recently we cooked a lovely 2 inch thick rib-eye steak using the reverse sear technique. The beef was cooked evenly throughout, and the rubbed seared crust was outstanding. It was some of the best steak we have experienced, our cats confirming this assessment.
