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

Does Outside Temp Matter?

Does anyone else fund that the egg burns more lump when it is cold out? By cold I mean snowy winters. Not you Floridians that bundle up in winter coats when the mercury hits 60.

  • Took the Medium to the in-laws for Christmas in the Washington DC area. Used 3/4 bag of Wicked Good during 3 cooks (Two Butts, Chili, and Prime Rib).  Temps were between 30-40 all three days.  I definitely felt the Egg used more lump, even if only in the beginning of the cooks.

  • for sure. It takes a lot more fuel to heat frigid air and keep your ceramic warm. No doubt it takes more in the cold

  • -12 up here in Northern Ontario...I use twice as much fuel as in the summer...but its still worth it ! :)
    Happy new Year fellow Eggers

    Someone needs to invent and market a BGE coozie and heat exchanger so y'all poor northerners don't deforest the planet running your BGEs in arctic temps.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

    Could be a federally funded climate control/impact study with this one :)
