We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Is it safe to leave my egg out all winter

Was wondering if it will be safe to leave my Large egg outside all winter. I live in North Dakota, and it isn't unheard of to have temps drop into the negative 30-40 degree F range with windchills that can go negative 60. Thats extreme and rare, but it can happen. I ask because I went outside today to get my egg ready for Thanksgiving by doing a clean burn and noticed there is a hairline crack in my plate setter that i never noticed before and i am worried that freeze thaw cycle that has occured here may have cause it. Not sure, but I think the crack is new, and it has been inside the egg this whole time. Not too concerned about the plate setter, cause thats a fairly cheap replacement, but the egg itself is a whole different story.

So what is the concensus. Is it safe outside all winter. Do I need to remove the firebox and fire ring from inside it, because I want to leave it out and use it on the nicer cold days, but not if I am going to end up with a broken egg.  Thanks all
