It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

    Before 2011, eggs came with a black porcelain grate. The stainless was a product upgrade. They also upgraded the dome thermometer.

    Cast iron grates are extra, and only needed if you like grill marks.

    Most of the grates you see pictures of on here are the stainless.  They just turn black very quickly into your eggs life!
