Eggzilla

So is the Eggzilla for real? Given other big smokers, it would make sense. Could weigh 400 lbs, but I would love to have one in my backyard!

  • It's a prop
  • I know the one at the event was a prop, but I was wondering if it was an idea in the works. If not, it should be!

    This is clearly a styrofoam (or similar material) prop; cool as it appears it is not made of anything close to BGE ceramic; unless the pictures are very bad and the finish is the same, blow up the picture and take a look. It would weigh 600-700 lbs. and the table is on 2" casters...

    You would think that Big Green Egg would come out with a commercial grade Egg. Something that restaurants would be inclined to purchase for their smoking needs. I guess that market is simply too saturated with large drum, box and custom smoker building companies.

    I have an XL, which serves a lot of people, but would be no where near enough cooking capacity to service a restaurant.

    i don't understand how any reasonable person can imagine that photo shows a real egg.

    that said, i could see them making a bigger egg (than the XL). but that photo in no way shows an egg that could actually be viable. it would not be possible to cook on that egg

    maybe there's a real 'eggzilla' being developed (something bigger than the XL), but that photo is not it. i will say, they certainly got people talking, and that is always good (despite the shill from the kamado-joe side decrying it, and saying he was going to "sell his (BGE)eggs" as a result of the confusion. talk about over reacting :laugh: )

  • Just so I don;t come off like an idiot, I was well aware that the photo was not of a real egg. My question was whether it represented an idea or product that Big Green Egg had developed or was working on.

    I have a large and an XL, but would be very hard for me not to break down and buy an eggzilla if it came out. I would imagine using it direct for steaks could be dangerous, but the smoking possibilities would be endless. Multiple large turkeys... whole pigs not doubled up on themselves... multiple giant filets of salmon...

    no. you weren't coming off like an idiot...
    there were some comments on the facebook page (since removed) that implied some folks were convinced the photo was the real deal

    i wouldn't be surprised myself if they developed something bigger (or maybe different... longer?) than the XL

    stranger things have happened :laugh:

    It doesn’t hurt that you’re sucking all of the idiot air out of the room
