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

    My Egg didn't come with a ceramic top, I've always used the daisy wheel to put out the fire.
    Never missed it.

    the daisy will put it out.  it's just the ceramic top won't rust if left out in the weather long term

    I am guilty of egg abuse myself.  Tucked the egg in nicely one evening.  Went to uncover it the next day and forgot the ceramic top was on and yanked the sheet off.  Looked just like your picture.  :(   had to buy a new one...........

    those covers cause more problems than they are worth.  if i had a table, i might protect the table with a cover.  but can't think of a reason to use a cover on just the egg itself.

    one dude's acts as a sail and launches his egg in a high wind, others find the ceramic cap yanked off and smashed, and many find it holds in moisture.

    those covers are dangerous

    Have to agree with stike. The bad out weighs the good to me.

    I concur with the anti-cover crowd if there isn't a wood table involved.  Ceramic is basically glass - which is about as durable as it gets to water/UV radiation.

    While on the topic of ceramic tops, I recently replaced my felt gasket with a High-que Nomex and used the left over for the top. Has anyone heard of any drawbacks of doing this?

    Sounds like a good idea, as long as there isn't enough friction were you'll get a cork-gun effect...
