Big Green Egg Jerk Chicken Recipe

Over the years, I have grilled, smoked, baked and added fire to many recipes in the backyard. One dish that keeps getting requested by my wife is Big Green Egg jerk chicken.

Recently, to help celebrate my wife’s birthday, I whipped up a batch of jerk chicken and this time around wanted to share the recipe with you.

There are few dishes I make that pack more flavour into the final product than jerk chicken. For almost a full day, the spicy smell of pepper is stuck in your nose and on your hands. This is not a bad thing.

Also since I can’t stand online recipes that have a 1,000 word story added before the vital information, here is the recipe.

Kyle Lowry, Walter White, March Madness and More

Well it’s Mid-March and we are officially a year into this mess known as the pandemic and now the media is pushing the arrival of the third wave. Cool.

Does anyone else feel like March 2020 and March 2021 have merged? Thank goodness I have an Instagram feed to remind me that the last 12 months existed. Seriously, if I close my eyes, I can instantly go back to this time last year and it feels like it is now. We were on the kid’s March Break, or March Broke as I was calling it, and trying to navigate staying busy with the boys.

It’s been a year since signing up for Disney +. It’s been a year since I started playing Red Dead Redemption. It’s been a year since I watched no March Madness.

Anyways, how are you? How is life going for you? Gotten your vaccine yet?

How about a brain dump?

Grilling At 750 Degrees F

Steak is a favourite at our house and ever since I have had a Big Green Egg, I feel like I can do the tasty meat the justice it deserves. It’s all about high heat and a short grill.

The other day, we celebrated another week of winning at parenting with two giant steaks.

Here is the Egg getting up to around 750 degrees F.

I first threw the steaks on the grill directly for 3o seconds a side to get some nice grill marks and really melt the salt and pepper seasoning into the crust.

Then I threw them into the blazing cast iron pan for a few minutes per side and that’s all it took. Two perfectly done steaks at medium rare.

What have you grilled lately?

Nothing like getting ready to cook steak at high heat in the cast iron pan. #ssssssst #biggreenegg #bbq

Cooking Eggs On Big Green Egg

As Tom Haverford would probably say, that’s eggs on eggs on eggs.

Yes, the Big Green Egg is just not for grilling and smoking meat. You can do vegetables like corn on the cob, baked beans and you can even do breakfast.

I had never done breakfast on the Egg until now. On Mother’s Day I wanted to make something different for breakfast. The mom of the house (my wife) enjoys a good plate of eggs and a side of meat. So I thought, why not try out something I saw done on my day with the people from La Grille.
