Newbie with a large egg for 1 1/2 months. [p]Times used over the past 1 1/2 months......[p]BGE 18
Oven 2 (frozen pizza for the kids, both times)[p]Maybe I'll store some of my BGE items I've purchased over the last 1 1/2 months in the oven.


  • WVU_Egg,
    I am in the same Boat. Got my BGE for Christmas and have used it at least 20 times. We are now storing drip pans, pizza stones, pizza peels, and other items in the oven. I did use the oven once, however. I used it to keep my pizza warm after I cooked it on the EGG![p]Brad

  • WVU_Egg,
    sometimes I use the oven to cook the paint on fishing lures, dont want to stink up the egg.

    I got my BGE last summer and have been using my oven for storage for most of the time since. Went to fire it up a couple of weeks ago and it doesn't work anymore. Oh, well, not in a big hurry to call the appliance guy ! )

  • WVU_Egg,Cook them frozen pizzas on the EGG, helps them out.[p]Good EGGIN to You,

  • WVU_Egg,

    WVU_Egg,[p]What's the lowest setting in that oven?
    Maybe you could use it to hold the brisket or pulled pork when it's done 8 hours before dinnertime...

    last summer i went to use the egg to reheat some pulled pork for a street party, lit the oven, put the pork in and checked on it after 20 minutes or so. when opening the oven, a fire ball shot out riveling any flashback that the egg has generated. a mouse had loaded the burner with dog food, good thing for fire extinguishers

  • WVU_Egg,
    in the last two years, i've used my oven for brownies and baked potatoes, and thats about it . . .everything else goes in the egg[p]casseroles
    pizza[p]you get the idea
