Big Green Eggs are grills, smokers, ovens, and more, and they make some of the best barbeque you’ll ever eat.

Of course, with just a few tweaks, you can make these meaty delights on any grill or smoker.

That said, if you’ve been on the fence about making such a big purchase, consider this a sign from above! Because these Big Green Egg recipes are too good to miss.

Juicy Beef Wellington with Ketchup

1. Beef Wellington

There’s nothing quite like Beef Wellington.

Of course, anything with a golden brown puff pastry crust that features a center of succulent, perfectly cooked beef is a hit in my book.

It looks great, and it tastes (and smells) even better. 

This recipe has an especially good taste, thanks to the Dijon mustard and chestnut mushrooms.

Whatever the reason, this seven-ingredient recipe will forever be one of my all-time favorites, and I think you’ll feel the same.

2. Better than Sex Brisket

This brisket is tender, juicy, and deliciously saucy.

It has a phenomenal sweet and smoky taste that’ll have you licking your fingers clean after every bite. 

The glaze is a simple mixture of apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, and your favorite BBQ sauce, but unlike some briskets, this one’s flavor doesn’t come exclusively from the glaze.

Instead, it’s infused throughout every inch of the delectable meat – from the glaze and sauce to the rub and smoky brisket itself. 

If you’re looking for meat that melts in your mouth, leaving nothing but pure flavor behind, this recipe is the one for you.

3. Keto/Paleo Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

These six-ingredient jalapeño poppers feature spicy chilies stuffed with almond cream cheese, mayo, fresh herbs, and green onions. 

Then, you’ll take an already delicious snack and wrap them in thick, salty pieces of bacon and cover them in your favorite sugar-free barbecue rub. 

Toss them on the grill (or in the oven or Air Fryer) and cook until the bacon is dripping and the cheese is melted and gooey. 

It shouldn’t take more than an hour no matter how you cook them, and you can enjoy them pretty much guilt-free.

After all, three poppers have only one net carb. 

Could these be the perfect keto appetizer? My money’s on YES.

4. Grilled Asparagus

This is like no other asparagus you’ve ever tried, and you can make a batch with three simple ingredients: white asparagus, sunflower oil, and hard-boiled eggs.

You’ll coat each spear with a generous portion of sunflower oil and grill them until they reach slightly sweet perfection. 

Then, top them with the diced hard-boiled egg for extra flavor and protein. It’s a fantastic BBQ side dish but it would pair well with practically anything. 

5. Ribeye Steaks on the Big Green Egg

There are plenty of ways to make delicious steaks, so I won’t say this is the “best.” But I will say it’s one of the best I’ve ever had!

The ribeyes are so juicy, buttery, and flavorful, and you’ll get notes of garlic and thyme in every bite.

The combination of soy and Worcestershire sauces is also an excellent choice. 

Just be sure you don’t overcook them; you don’t want to dry them out.

6. Grilled Mahi Mahi Tacos with Chipotle Cream Sauce

Give these grilled Mahi Mahi tacos a try if you’re in the mood for something with south-of-the-border flair. 

You’ve probably had fish tacos before, but these take fish tacos to a whole new level.

They have a bright, zesty taste that pairs flawlessly with the spicy chipotle flavor of the adobe cream sauce.

They also have a whopping 31 grams of protein and need just ten minutes of prep.

7. Maple Pork Chops

You can have these thick, juicy pork chops ready to eat in just 25 minutes.

All you need is water, maple syrup, salt, vanilla extract, granulated onion, pepper, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

They’re sweet, savory, tender, and slightly crispy around the edges. Everything you love about a well-cooked pork chop, you’ll find it in these. 

It doesn’t matter if you’re cooking for friends, family, or even your kids; people will devour these bad boys in a flash.

In fact, they’ll probably come back for seconds.

8. Grilled Pizza on a Big Green Egg

Although most people don’t think of pizza when grilling, you can make a scrumptious pie on your Big Green Egg in less than 30 minutes. 

It’s a simple process, really.

Just prepare your pizza dough with flour and coarse cornmeal so it won’t burn or char on the Egg. 

Then, assemble the pizza dough, sauce, mozzarella, and your favorite toppings (the recipe recommends hot pickled peppers and pepperoni). 

Toss it on the grill, and in about 12 minutes, you’ll be trying not to burn your tongue on the hot, gooey cheese.

9. Beer Can Chicken on a Green Egg

This gorgeous golden bird has exceptionally crisp skin and tender, succulent meat inside.

It’s wonderfully seasoned, and the beer can rub and apple juice infuse every bite with flavor. 

It takes a little over two hours to make, but biting into it is like biting into a little piece of heaven.

I don’t know about you, but I think that kind of perfection is worth it. 

10. Pulled Pork on the Big Green Egg

Ah, pulled pork. It’s one of the simplest meats to make, but it takes the longest amount of time.

All you’ll need for this pulled pork recipe is Boston butt, pork rub, and your Big Green Egg.

The process for smoking the meat isn’t challenging, but it’ll take you about 18 hours, including rest time, cook time, and everything else. 

But again, as I’ve said already, true perfection is worth a bit of time!

And you just can’t beat the smoky, salty taste of pulled pork made on the Big Green Egg.
