Big Green Craig
HEAD COOK: Craig Tabor
COMPETITION: World Recipe Championship
Craig, or Big Green Craig as he's affectionately known in the BBQ community, is a chef playing the role of a backyard BBQ warrior. His slogan, 'there isn't anything I won't grill' is a dead-on representation of how he approaches outdoor cooking. Craig has mastered the BBQ staples such as pork shoulder, brisket and ribs, but his skill and commitment to all foods coal-fired extends to chef-inspired dishes such as Beef Wellington, Paella and sushi. Yes, he has made grilled sushi before!
Craig is an equal opportunity griller. He owns five Big Green Eggs, a Kamado Joe, a Flo Kamado, a Rec Tec Pellet smoker and the classic backyard staple, a Weber Kettle. With that said, his true passion is cooking on the Big Green Egg, the reason for his internationally-known moniker. Craig has won the national Big Green Egg festival's top honor (Eggtoberfest's People's Choice Award) in back-to-back years.
Craig can be found on the web at BigGreenCraig.com, on numerous BBQ forums under the handle BigGreenCraig or on Instagram under the same name where 49,000 followers drool with each daily upload from the grillmaster himself.
