Whole Wheat Bread on the Big Green Egg

Whole Wheat Bread on the Big Green Egg

I have made whole wheat bread several times on the Big Green Egg and have thoroughly enjoyed the crispy crust and flavor of the bread, especially after putting it in the toaster.  I tried baking the bread in a conventional oven, but it just did not taste...

    That pizza looks amazing! I never thought about using a grill/smoker to cook pizza, but it makes scenes.
    Is this a good product for slow cooking or is it primarily for rapid meal preparation!

      The Big Green Egg is designed for keeping a consistent low temperature heat for several hours.  When I cooked the ribs at 230 for over 6 hours (see https://mybgeblog.com/perfect-…) I had enough charcoal left over to grill hamburgers.  Grilling is a quick cook like the conventional gas grills.  The beauty of the egg is that you can close the dome and contain the grease flare-ups.
