Endless Possibilities with Outdoor Cooking

We’re partnering with Big Green Egg to ensure your meals match the season in the most delicious way possible. A Large Big Green Egg allows home chefs to grill, smoke and even bake all of your favorite recipes with total control over temperature.

Dr. BBQ shared some of his delicious Big Green Recipes you won’t want to wait to try for yourself:

Grilled Pork Steaks with Crispy Potatoes


● 2 pork blade steaks (1 lb each)
● Big Green Egg Citrus Dill Seasoning
● Big Green Egg Vidalia Onion Sriracha Barbecue Sauce (to taste)
● Olive oil
● 1 ½ lbs small red potatoes cut in half
● Black pepper


● Prepare the Egg to cook indirect at 325° with the EGGspander in place. Add 1 or 2 chunks of apple wood to the charcoal for smoke flavor.
● Add ¼ cup of oil to the small Big Green Egg skillet and preheat it on the bottom cooking rack for 15 minutes.
● In a medium bowl lightly oil the potatoes and season liberally with the Citrus Dill Rub and black pepper. Toss to coat evenly and cook for 15 minutes.
● Season the meat with the Citrus Dill Rub and place on the top cooking rack of the EGGspander so they’ll drip into the potatoes.
● After 30 minutes, flip the pork steaks, toss the potatoes and cook for another 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender and crispy.
● To kick up the flavor a notch, brush the pork steaks with the barbeque sauce and cook for 10 minutes on each side.
