Big Green Egg Recipe

Beef Ribs With Maple Bourbon Sauce


  • 6 large beef simmering short ribs (approx. 1.5kg total)
  • 4 tbsp Sweet Smoked Paprika
  • 2 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 4 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Bourbon Whiskey
  • 1/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Prepared Seed Mustard or your Favorite Mustard

  • Using the Big Green Egg with the ConvEGGtor and charcoal, set the temperature to around 107 °C (225 °F).
  • Season the ribs well with paprika, garlic powder, thyme, cayenne, salt and pepper.
  • Cook the ribs covered on the grid for six hours or until the internal temperature reaches at least 88 °C (190 °F).
  • Make your sauce while the ribs cook by bringing the maple syrup, bourbon, brown sugar, and mustard to a boil. Lower the heat to medium-low and reduce it to one cup while stirring occasionally.
  • Let the sauce cool and put the ribs in a small cooler for an hour to allow the temperature of the ribs to increase and make them tender.
  • Pour the sauce over the ribs and enjoy immediately.

Green Mountain Grill Recipe

Smoked Beer Can Chicken


  • 1 American Beer in Can
  • 1 Shot of Tequila
  • 1-Whole Chicken
  • 1/4 Cup Sea Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • Black Pepper
  • Garlic Salt

  • Start by creating a brine by dissolving 1/4 cup of kosher salt in roughly one gallon of water in a sizeable pot.
  • Next, give the whole chicken a good wash and rinse, ensuring the giblets are removed.
  • Submerge the chicken fully in the brine and place it in the refrigerator for approximately 3 hours.
  • Create a basting mixture by combining two tablespoons of melted butter with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Use this to coat the chicken thoroughly, both on the outside and inside.
  • Generously season the chicken with garlic salt and black pepper, making sure to reach both the exterior and the interior.
  • Prepare a beer can by discarding around half of its contents. A warmed beer is preferred for this step.
  • Add a shot of tequila to the half-empty beer can if desired.
  • The chicken is then placed atop the beer can, with the can being inserted into its cavity. Ensure the chicken is stable and standing upright.
  • Preheat your grill until it reaches a consistent temperature of approximately 165 °C (325 °F).

Ooni Pizza Oven Recipe

Vegetarian Pizza with Honey & Goat Cheese


  • One 8.8 ounce pizza dough ball (250 grams)

For the spiced honey:

  • 20 grams liquid honey
  • 2.5 grams cayenne pepper

For the pizza:

  • Flour, for dusting
  • 50 grams heavy cream
  • 80 grams of fior di latte mozzarella, shredded
  • 80 grams or 5 to 6 slices soft goat cheese
  • 20 grams yellow raisins
  • 7 or 8 fresh mint leaves

  • Start by heating your Ooni oven, targeting a temperature of 450°C. For quick and precise reading, measure the baking stone’s temperature using an infrared thermometer.
  • Prepare the spiced honey by stirring together 20 grams of honey and 2.5 grams of cayenne pepper in a small bowl; feel free to adjust the quantities to suit your palate
  • On a surface dusted generously with flour, flatten your dough.
  • Transfer the rolled dough onto a pizza peel that’s been lightly dusted with flour.
  • Spread the cream over the surface of the dough using a spoon, swirling it in a circular pattern. Sprinkle the mozzarella uniformly over the cream and top it off with slices of goat cheese.
  • Send the pizza into the preheated oven for a bake time of between 60 to 90 seconds, giving it a turn every 20 seconds for a uniform bake.
  • After removing the pizza from the oven, transfer it onto your board. Add the final garnishes – raisins, mint leaves, and a drizzle of the prepared spiced honey. Cut into slices and enjoy!

Everdure Cube Recipe

Perfect Grilled Steak with Chimichurri


  • 1 Steak per serving


  • 50g Red jalapenos
  • 30g White wine vinegar
  • 30g Mint leaves
  • 10g Coriander leaves
  • 10g Basil leaves
  • 20g Tarragon leaves
  • 60g Flat leaf parsley
  • 5g Cloves garlic, peeled
  • 6g Salt
  • 120g Olive oil
Chimichurri Preparation:

  • Take all the listed ingredients for the chimichurri and put them in a blender.
  • Process until you achieve a finely coarse texture.
  • Store the chimichurri in a sealed container and refrigerate until it’s time to use it.

Steak Preparation:

  • Heat your grill to a high temperature. Season your ribeye steak on both sides.
  • Grill your steak, turning it over every 15 seconds. For a steak that is 2cm thick, you’d typically need around 2 minutes to achieve medium-rare doneness.
  • Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature by inserting it into the meatiest part of the steak. Keep in mind that you should take off the steak around 5 degrees before it hits your preferred temperature, as it will continue to cook a little more after it’s off the grill.
  • Let the steak rest for about 5 minutes on a cooling rack placed over a tray; this allows the heat to distribute evenly and the steak’s fibres to relax, ensuring juicier meat.
  • Once rested, slice the steak against the grain and serve with the previously prepared chimichurri sauce. Enjoy!
