Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
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!

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

  • Welcome meatshop. What I'd really like for you to do is move to Birmingham and open a shop about 30 minutes south of town... Having a real butcher is something I miss about living in Pittsburgh for a couple of years.

  • Hey Bama, don't think I'm not tempted!  Of course, being an east TN guy, there would be some sports considerations that might make that move a little less likely, haha.  You know, I'll never forget the first time I was introduced to a true and quality Pittsburgh-style fillet.  I just remember thinking, "Man I feel sorry for those who can't handle rare steak" because, for my palate, beef flavor just doesn't get better than that.  Something about the charred outside and the warm rare middle are just incredible flavors together.

    Don't take the Bama comment personally, trust me I'd move the Tide to Knoxville in a heartbeat if I could!

    Take Care!

  • thunderkwb, I had to go and check to make sure I wasn't goin' crazy, but if you scroll a bit on the chuck cuts page, I think you'll see that the boneless chuck steak is actually listed as a braising stk, as it should be, but the boneless chuck 'eye' stk is the one listed as a grilling steak.

    Thanks for clearing that up,  Good info.

  • Thank you, Tim!

    Aviator, that's not far at all and in fact, I lived in the River City for a couple years.  I used to wait tables at Mt Vernon at the foot of Lookout Mtn.  Great restaurant for very good quality southern dining.  I'm sure you probably know it, it's kind of one of the hometown faves in Chatt.

    Take Care!

  • Nice site, you need to center your Ads as some are right justified and block the right navigation bar.
    ·
  • itkirbys, thank you very much for the feedback!  Do you mean the ads that appear in the page body / middle of the page are covering up the navigation in the right sidebar?  The navigation with the animal images?  If you don't mind sharing an instance or two of where you've noticed this issue, I will get it corrected.

    Thank you again for visiting the site!

  • rontho, I will confess I am not currently using an egg, I'm new to the site and culture, but I am continuously reading such positive things, I'm sure to get one.  Would you recommend a good starter model?

    nm...I see the piece asking for advice....I like the large for starter...not much you can't do with it and with accessories it becomes a beast.

    I love my large but it's just me and whomever I'm dating at the time(no children). If I had to do it over I would probably get the XL just because of the extra space. I use firebricks to create two levels of cooking and have a pizza stone and plate setter. I don't think you could go wrong with any of the sizes and combinations of the egg. I would say get the biggest you can afford.

  • Outstanding...with fall and football, I think it's the perfect time to go shopping for one.  I guess it's the ultimate irony, but this meat guy doesn't even have a grill at the moment..just moved in to a new place and still getting things together.  Thanks so much for the tips, very exciting.

    Eric, that's a question that's been asked several times on this board. As you look through some of the threads you will find a dhifferent answer from almost everyone. It basically boils down to how many are you usually cooking for. Personally I have the XL (the no regret model as some call it) and there are only two of us. However when the family and friend come over it's a life saver. Ron
