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

Adjustable Rig - Early Christmas Present

Pulling the trigger on the AR before the Bob's Annual Christmas Party.  Recommendations?  What about the oval grates? Best combo package?  Going all in.  P.S. The party is 12/21 in North Fulton County (Atlanta). More on that later.

    Call Tom at Ceramic Grill Store. He hangs here and is a nice,  patient fella.  Tell him  what  you plan on cooking with your egg and AR,  and he'll recommend what combo you should buy.  He's  not the type of guy to oversell or make you buy things you won't need.

    R&B combo with sliding D grid extender. I don't have the sliding d extender but it's on my list to get now that I have the rig.

    I'll have to watch this one also. I've been kicking it around in my head.

    I don't think there is a "wrong" setup with the Rig, it just depends on what style of cooks you do more frequently then others.  I would seriously suggest calling Tom and discussing it with him, especially if you are going "all in".  I probably could have saved a bunch of money on shipping if I'd gotten everything I've ordered from Tom for my large in one shipment instead of three.

    I learned my lesson when I got my medium and knew I'd be getting a small for travel/tailgating and waited until I had the small to order woos for both eggs.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season.

    Thanks for the tips.  I have been eying the Sliding D extender.  I need the rig when we have people over and for parties.  I will give Tom a call and let everyone know how it works out for me.
