Planning your Thanksgiving menu? Try something different this year, and make some – or all – of your dishes on your Big Green Egg and make the holiday a Big Green Egg Thanksgiving!

The Big Green Egg Thanksgiving Turkey

First things first… Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a turkey. A handful of pecan chips will help give your turkey a great, smoky flavor and also a deep, brown color. 

Cornish Game Hens for Your Big Green Egg Thanksgiving

Expecting a smaller crowd, or looking for something different? Try Cornish Game Hens – or Rock Cornish hens as they’re sometimes called. These are young (usually less than 5 weeks old) chickens. They cost a little more than regular chicken per pound but at a 2lb average you’re still only paying around $3-4 bucks per bird.

Your Big Green Egg Thanksgiving Appetizer: Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

Looking for an appetizer? How about Bacon-wrapped Shrimp?

A meal isn’t a meal without delicious side dishes, like Roasted Hatch Chile Mac N Cheese.

Grilled Romaine with Maytag Blue Cheese is another quick and surprisingly tasty side.

End the Meal with a Delicious Thanksgiving Dessert

And for desert – Peach Cobbler!

Hmm. Or maybe Coconut Cake …

Getting hungry? We are! Maybe you can have your Big Green Egg Thanksgiving now – and again later!!
