Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Party Q

Does anyone use the party q and if so how do you like it?

  • I have it and I like it. Only issue is when batteries run down during a cook, but I've started to be able to recognize it by watching the Maverick. Then it is no issue to just go out and do a quick battery change. There is a great detailed review on the naked whiz's website.

    I use it and love it. Just make sure to get well up to temp prior to installing on BGE. I replace the batteries for each cook, they have never failed during cook and I've done 13 HR briskets. I highly recommend, especially if you only need the grid temp.

    I bought one recently and tried it out on a pork butt low and slow overnight cook. Worked great. Batteries went dead at about 14 hours but I caught it right away and replaced them for the remaining 3 hours. It was rather cold that day (18F) so I may have gotten better batt life had it been warmer out. Despite that minor hitch, it held my Egg temp rock steady the whole cook.

    Only thing I wish they would change on the PartyQ is add a DC input so it could be powered with a wall wart AC adapter - this would eliminate the battery issue on extended cooks. Once my warranty is up, I plan to add that feature to it myself.
  • I have one and like it very much. If you live somewhere that gets cold, use lithium batteries instead of normal alkaline to avoid them giving out during your cook. Lithium maintain their capacity as the temperature drops, alkaline do not. Good luck with your choice
