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

    19F w/ a wind chill factor of 8F. Amazing how fast on can move when you put your mind/frozen behind to it.

    I did a tri tip on saturday, then cranked up the heat for a quick clean burn to clean some gunk off the platesetter.  The Egg was still too hot when I was going to bed, so I left it uncovered overnight.  When I awoke we had gotten a half inch of snow or so.  The Egg and the area around it were bone dry and ready to go again, lol!

    I just keep a nice strong beer in my hand while grilling in those temps.  On saturday, I finished a 750ml bottle of 10%+ beer in about 20 minutes while hanging outside with the egg.

    Agreed. I drank a 750 of Bruery Three French Hens and then some Uinta Hop Notch's as needed.

    Iam on a Chimay and Belgian stint, but I will drink any beer. I have two aging right now, and will get them on Christmas.

  • I probably shouldn't admit this but... I rescheduled my cheeseburger cook on Sunday because it was a frigid 55F.  I stayed inside all day (wrapped up in a snuggie) and ordered takeout lasagna.

    I am always on a Belgian stint. There must be a reason they've been around about as long as the Magna Carta

  • Here in central Oklahoma, it's the humidity and windchill that gets you! I grilled in a blizzard we had a few years ago ... wind chills below zero! But, I was comfy with my Woodford on that low-n-slow!

    We go winter camping January of every year with our Eggs up at 3500 feet elevation in West Virginia. Our record is 15 below not counting the wind. Overnight, no Guru. 8 hours solid all by itself while I was cocooned in my down sleeping bag.

    Amazing mosheen.
    Cheers

  • Last weekend it was 18F when I started some PP.  Does it count when you're sitting inside while having a beer or twelve and watching the maverick.  Never had to go out and mess with anything until I pulled her off the following day (by then it was up to 25F)
