When I got my first egg it took me a while to find all the ‘stuff’ discussed here on the forum. What follows below are links to some of the sites with great information, recipes and goodies/accessories.

By all means the references below are not complete. It is a good start and in no particular order. The following focuses on BGE Products and accessories, tools made by Forum Members. With that in mind if you come upon a site that should be included let me know.

Each of the following sites have great recipes and information. Some suggestions are provided, however, each site has much more to offer – recipes, tips, how too, tools. Take the time to visit and explore the sites below.

  • I am a future egger (hopefully this summer). I have been reading this forum for months, and I have learned a lot. Thank you for this fantastic list of resources. I am always amazed at how friendly and helpful people on these forums can be. Thanks again! :)

    Welcome to the forum.

    How is your burn doing?

  • BrocBroc Posts: 1,398
    Better -- I'm growing new skin across my wrist... and I got to the ice right away, so it didn't go as deep as I first thought. I can touch now without a pain sensation.

    My tummy was... uh... hanging out, y'know... so it got a blurb of the grease. Fortunately, I was wearing my undershirt, so there's only as nasty about the size of a silver dollar.

    Much of the grease landed on my new shoes! Oh, man! Will I ever get them looking spiffy again! I'm going to take them in to a cobbler and see what he can do with his buff machines.

    Thanks for the helpful list of links. Website links, not edible ones. Looks like lots of good info.

    Grandpas Grub--I emailed you a PM. I wonder if you received it or if the email is somehow not working. I read another post elsewhere that indicated others were having problems with sending/receiving emails. Just curious to know if mine is working or not.

    Thanks so much for the info, I have been to the naked whiz and downloaded one cookbook, I will be getting my egg soon and can't wait, the forum makes me hungry. I will also be going to the eggfest in OK in April I know I will learn alot there. Can't wait.

  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    Justin, I just now checked my in folder and junk email folder and I don't see anything in either folder.

    I also tried sending a forum email to myself and it hasn't been received either. I am not sure how long it takes the forum software to send - but nothing so far.

    I can be contacted at kentja at

    Welcome to the forum and all I can say is don't wait to get your egg. Most of us say we wish we got our eggs or learned about eggs sooner.

    Have fun at the fest.

    Thank you so much for the link. I resent a test email through the forum just to try it again. I have emailed others and have not received responses, so I assume that there is a hitch in the gitalong somewhere.

    The information you have put out there is great. Thanks from all of us newbies.

    Just checked the email folders again and nothing. I sent one to myself earlier and it did not make it either.

    I have also just sent a forum email to you to see if it arrives.

    I would have to say at this time the email function within the forum isn't working.
