Slow cooking. We will discuss the merits of brines, marinades, and rubs as well as which cuts and ingredients work best for slow-cooking.
Roasting: Using indirect heat, we will show how to set up the oven for roasting any joint or vegetable as you would with a conventional oven.
Grilling: the Big Green Egg can do grilling like a conventional BBQ, but when you grill with the lid down, you can control the temperature precisely and avoid flare-ups so that the end result is not cremated, but cooked to perfection.
Plank smoking: Learn how to easily hot smoke a range of foods to enhance the smokey flavour, with great presentation.
We will cook local, seasonal ingredients, with a meat dish, fish, veg, and fruit, all using different methods to give you the full experience of the Big Green Egg’s versatility.
The course will end with lunch from all the prepared foods and a question and answer session.
The course is held outside and will be hands-on, so please come dressed appropriately.
If you purchase a Big Green Egg on the day, we will refund you the price of the course.
