  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, washed and dried
  • 2 boiled eggs, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup bacon grease, softened, not melted
  • ½ lb. bacon, cooked and diced
  • Big Green Egg Citrus & Herb Seasoning
  • ½ cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 tbsp chives, chopped


Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 225°F/107°C.

Puncture each potato several times. Cover the potatoes completely with warm, soft bacon grease and the Big Green Egg Citrus & Herb Seasoning in a cast iron skillet. Place the potatoes on the Big Green Egg and cook for 2 hours, or until the potatoes are tender in the center.

While the potatoes are cooking, mix together the onion, vinegar, salt, pepper, bacon, mustard, mayonnaise, and celery.

Once cooled, dice the potatoes and mix them with the rest of the ingredients. Top with the chives and enjoy!

  1. My wife does not like potato salad, but this she loves and can’t wait for me to make more. I used pecan chips to add more smoky flavor and substituted sweet onion for yellow. I also used 1/2 greek yogurt and 1/2 mayonnaise in lieu of all mayo.

  2. Maybe a dumb question, but is this Intended to mean cool the potatoes and eggs way down to where this is aweserved cold or just cooled a bit and served warm (which sounds more like smoked loaded mashed potatoes I guess)

  3. When you state put the potatoes & 2 eggs on the Big Green Egg and cook for 2 hours, am I putting them directly on the conveggtor or metal grill? Is the conveggtor facing up or down?

    1. Usually “set the EGG for indirect” means put the conveggtor in facing down with a metal grill on top, and food goes on the grill. I did this once already and it was great, though my potatoes took about 4-5 hours not 2. I’m doing it again today. Can’t wait!
