Big Green Egg on a Sailboat- Ray Lampe’s Cookbook As My Inspiration

I wanted to cook on the Big Green Egg (size small) now on my sailboat…but wanted inspiration and a roadmap to cook the perfect steaks.  I found it in Mr. Ray Lampe’s cookbook; titled Big Green Egg Cookbook, published by Andrews McMeel Publishing in 2016.

The book is 147 pages long and crammed with recipes and full color pictures.  Since I was looking for inspiration anyways and wanted to heat up the Big Green Egg, this was a perfect reason to crack this book.  I found my inspiration on page 33…I was going to cook “Better than any Steak House Rib Eyes” but had not bought rib eyes, so I just used what I had.  I also didn’t have all the ingredients to make the dry rub as per the recipe; so again I used what I had.  I did follow the spirit and flow of the recipe and the cooking directions carefully.  The steaks cooked flawlessly and came out nearly as good as I’ve ever cooked them, take a look below:

Fire in the Egg

For this recipe, I would be cooking the steaks at approx 500 degrees for just a few minutes using direct heat.  It worked like a charm! Check out the finished product below:

Better than Steakhouse Steaks with Garlic Butter and a great bottle of Peachy Canyon Zin along with my cooking beer.

Not too bad, and they tasted fantastic, with just a perfect touch of smoke to them.  Next time I try this recipe I’ll be using the recommended steak (ribeye) at the recommended thickness 1 1/4 thick and I’ve already bought the spices I was missing for the dry rub.  Overall this was a great dinner and I’d recommend the book for the barbecue enthusiast.  If you click on the link I provided and decide to get the book, we’ll make some beer money!  Here’s another look at the steaks:

 Lastly, if you didn’t read my first post about the first time we cooked on the BGE, here’s the link: Pulled Pork using Big Green Egg – 1st Use of the BGE on our Sailboat.

Thanks for reading, more coming next time I fire up the Big Green Egg for Beer Can Chicken.
