Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

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 :)
