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!

BGE Instant read thermometer.. does anyone own one?

Santa got me a BGE instant read.  I know that the TP gets a lot of press around here, but was wondering if I should exchange the BGE version for some other eggcesory or if anyone has one and stands by it?

Thanks in advance-  P

    Little problem is that BGE has no "instant read" in 2 to 3 second read like TP. BGE only looks like the TP. Take back and get someother Eggcesory.

  • I have both and recommend you return the BGE one and get the TP.

    The BGE is a Maverick PT100 with BGE branding. I'd return it for something else, buy a Mav at 1/2 the price or better yet, get a TP.
