Big Green Egg Beer Cheese Dip

Big Green Egg Beer Cheese Dip

The weather is cooling down. Football is on TV. Tailgating season is in full swing. What else could you want? This Big Green Egg Beer Cheese Dip is our favorite cheese dip – try it this weekend!


4 tbsp unsalted butter
6 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 beer (we used Yuengling® lager, but any lager or ale will work)
2 Tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
6 cups sharp cheddar cheese


Set the Big Green Egg for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 400°F/204ºC.

In the Big Green Egg Dutch Oven melt the butter and whisk in the flour to create a roux. Take the Dutch Oven off the heat and slowly whisk in milk until smooth.

Add the rest of the ingredients into the Dutch oven and place on the EGG. Cook 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and smooth.

Serve warm with warm, soft pretzels.
