Spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with your EGG? Virginia Willis’ three course menu is perfect for a date night! February is also National Chocolate Lover’s Month, so don’t feel guilty if you’ve been cooking a little more dessert than usual on your EGG. If you’re looking for something a little more savory than chocolate, try some Roasted Chicken Flatbread or Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard.

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the History of the EGG Museum and the Culinary Center too!  3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340.

My regular grate gripper doesn't fit my half moon cast iron cooking grates.  What do other XL owners use?

    ThirdeyeQ's Third Hand tool. Hard to get right now as he is only making a limited amount & is backed up on orders. BGE's grid lifter is OK but not as functional (doesn't hold as much weight or hang as easy). Other vendors (like Steven Raichlen) sell a version of the grid lifter (same tool different brand).
