Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

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

Re-purposed the old gasser

Haven't used the gasser in months, and it looked like it - back of the yard covered in cobwebs.  Recently got the Lodge Hibachi, which I love for searing or quick burgers, but got tired of cooking at ground level, and waiting for it to cool down then storing in the shed.  Cleaned up the old grill, and it's perfect for the hibachi/  Will be searing some filets tonight!

  • I use mine as a workspace to put hot grates etc from the BGE on while cooking. I also use it as a rain hood to put the controller for my CyberQ in , shutting the lid and keeping it dry.

    Perfect!  Gassers are a great place to store eggcessories!

    Well played sir!
    When I'm not Eggin', I'm scootin'   Eggin' and 'cueing from Temecula Ca; an hour from San Diego, an hour and five minutes from Palm Springs, and an hour and a half from Los Angeles (yeah, right. With THAT traffic?)

    And if you close the lid it's almost a smoker! Great idea.

    I have been eyeing that Lodge.  I really, really want a Mini but I can't justify the price for what I would be getting.

    That's why I went with the Lodge. A Mini is in the future, but for now, for the price, the Lodge will do what I want. A great pairing with the Egg. For steaks, I can sear, or reverse sear, without dealing with temp changes on the Egg. Great combo with the LBGE. Raising it up into the old grill and being able to leave it out in the elements is a plus.

    The Lodge is a great grill....cooks well and built to last. A great addition to a BGE (and a re-purposed gasser)

    Admittedly I wish I still had a small gasser. Love my egg, but sometimes I don't want to fire it up for hot dogs for the kids.

    That's why I want a mini.  Quick and/or small cooks.

    To make the mini extra quick, I sometimes steal leftover lump out of my XL and fill the mini with that.
