Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Get ready to turn up the heat as we dive into August. While there are only a few weeks left to perfect those tailgate recipes, summer isn’t over yet! Two things we’ll be making this month are Chile Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops and Bell Pepper Kabobs. Then, relax after a cookout with a cool dessert cooked on your EGG - Ice Cream Sandwiches! You can mix and match your favorite cookie flavors with ice cream flavors. Simple, yet delicious!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Anybody ever see one of these?

An old kamado that my neighbor gave me a few months back. It was in bad shape but still had a decent outer shell so I "eggcessorized" it at my local BGE store and it works great. Anybody have any history on these things. My research says they were brought back from Japan by our service men in the 1950's. My large BGE is still my favorite though...image

    That's some awesome velcro on your wall!

    I'm no expert, but it looks like a '74-ish fire-clay big green egg. 

    Either way, don't do a clean burn and you'll be fine.  Oh, and no pizzas over 450.  Can't beat free.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

    Right, Nola. My father got his first Kamado in 1968 or so. It had a clay top and a clay stopper in the vent area. You carefully adjusted the angles for the air flow. No metal.
