Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

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

I'm a dumb ass...

Laid out my lump and lit it with the mapp torch. Closed the egg and went in to do some prep. I came our half an hour later, planning to put veggie kabobs on, before the ribeyes. Fire is out. I guess that's what happens when you leave the green cap on the egg. Oh well, lit again and time for another beer. Cheers.

  • @henapple would say you are a genius - however, suggest you only use the same excuse once a month. More beverage time is not a bad thing.

  • Been there done that, but more often I light it, go in do the prep, forget about the fire and come out to a fire hot enough to weld with.

  • After a half hour you would be at 1200 degrees, be happy you left the rain cap on.

    @Skiddymarker- Every cloud has a silver lining, right? Sage advice from @henapple! @td66snrf & @Doc_Eggerton - I have ended up way hot after a delay more than once, never quite 1200, though! @4runner- haha, I have a friend that did that in a bass boat! Makes for a good story but otherwise, not good.

    How did I get dragged into this?

    Hello? Any excuse to drink rather than actually cook is right up your alley. It was meant as a compliment, being of the same school myself.

    Well, I left the CI daisy wheel on, closed, not the ceramic cap.  So I'm BETTER than you!   :P

  • For me, it's usually forgetting to open the bottom vent.
