Posted on March 15, 2010March 19, 2013 by Brian AllenSmoking with The Big Green Egg Well, I fired up, for the first, my “Big Green Egg” cooker that my parents gave me for Christmas. We smoked two chickens. They turned out very good. We used a pizza baking stone to give more indirect heating. Next time, I will be using some Apple wood from a friends fallen tree.
