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

So there I was...

Cooking pizzas at 650 degrees.  I had just placed the third pie on the Egg and tuned my back.  A minute later I heard the sound of cracking ceramic and something inside the Egg falling.  I was picturing a broken firebox or fire ring.

Whew!  Just my 20 year old Pampered Chef pizza stone.  I know everyone says not to use these.  I have been cooking pizza once a week on this one for 1.5 years. 

Any recommendations on what I should replace it with?

  • +1 on the stone from ceramic grill store. It can also be pared with a spider for use in place of the plate setter.

    Since just a sliver of that one came off why not still use it?
