Big Green Egg
If anyone was in the city this weekend, you know how great the weather was. After a big dinner the night before, Gramercy Guy and I got up early to beat the crowds and went for a nice bike ride on the path along the Hudson River.
Later we headed to our friends' in Jersey City, BGE Master (Big Green Egg Master) and Shoe Girl's for an afternoon bbq. We were excited to get the invite which read, "The Big Green Egg Has Landed." If you don't know what the BGE is, it's a clay domed smoker that can cook almost anything and has a cult following.
Gramercy Guy would like to think that his smoked brisket was the inspiration for BGE Mater's quest to smoke everything. This time, BGE Master was only doing ribs. He had two different rubs and both sets were delicious (we even got a doggy bag of leftovers). The ribs were juicy and tender and came right off the bone.
Most importantly, they had that smoke ring that you look for in good smoked meats.
I can't forget about the appetizers. BGE Master's smoked stuffed jalapenos. He sometimes wraps them in bacon, and I'm so glad this time he didn't.
