Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you had a hoppy Easter and are ready to spring into warm weather cooking mode! There’s nothing better than spending time outdoors with the sweet aroma of fresh cooked Ribs. Baseball season is also underway, so it's the perfect time to try out some chicken wing variations! We have Jamaican Jerk, Lemon Pepper, Fired-Up Wings and even a Whiskey Onion and Chicken Steak if wings aren't your thing. Bon appetit!



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

Hey Gang,

The one thing missing from my shipment was a box of fire starters.  What are my options, and can I get them at Walmart or Fred Meyer?

Thanks!

    Go to any place that sells charcoal (Home Depot, Menards, etc.) and get an $8. electric starter, they work great!

    I third the torch....very quick and easy. I have the Bernzomatic with the hose and trigger.

    You should wear safety glasses though, for sparks.

  • Found some Diamond brand fire starters at the grocery store for $1.98. There are 8 to a pack and I only needed a third of one to get it going. I'd call that a good investment.

  • I use a Mapp Gas torch.  It will cause some popping and sparks so be careful if you go with a torch.

    I use the cubes or other type like that.  If I don't have those on hand I do the oil/paper towel method.  No problems at all.  I may get an electric one,  but don't like the fire hazard.  What if I forget it in there?

  • I got a pack of fire starters when I bought my XL. I cut them in quarters. The box had 24 starters. I can get 96 fires out of one box.
