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

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday weekend...

Here in PA it feels more like Thanksgiving instead of the kickoff of summer.

I know this is a big BBQ weekend for most. For Eggers; it's just another weekend ;)

Thank you to everyone that ever signed that check for freedom; those that had it sadly cashed, and those lucky enough to have it returned... You are what has made evenings like this possible. Thank you...

No egging tonight for me; still have leftovers from the pork loin. Not sure what'll be on the egg tomorrow. Sunday heading to Mom's...

Not burning any lump; but I am burning a decent stick and sippin some Jameson listening to the Tigers game hoping Miggy stays hot...

Cheers!!!

    Happy Memorial Day to you too Hap. I'm enjoying Landshark Lager and listening to the Braves beat the Mets. Freddie Freeman jacked a two run shot in the first inning. I hope they can keep up this run they're on.

    @Charlietuna- Great gesture-can't imagine the sea-stories fueled by time and adult beverages.  I'm sure all will appreciate the BGE groceries!  Submarines once...

    Enjoy the weekend, take a moment to thank a veteran if you meet one, and say a word or two for those that made the ultimate sacrifice. Grew up an Army brat, father and other family members served in both Canadian and US Army. 

    Nice stick choice @Hapster - My humidor is empty!

    There is one sub sailor who is 94 years old, stowed away on a sub in 1941 as it was leaving on a war patrol.  The skipper made a torpedoman out of him.  Think the name of his original sub was R-16?  Talk about sea stories!!!

    Hap, just started smoking cigars...love it so far.  I have had a few Drew Estate; felt they were pretty good.  Any recommendations for a newbie in the area.  I would love to have a hobby as I hobby on the egg! Plus I have a mustache and everyone knows guys with mustaches just look cool smoking cigars   ;)

    @Eggucator...

    Alec Bradley, Casa Magna, NUBs, and Kristoffs are good bets for some nice sticks.

    Depends on your tastes... Heavy and strong, or lighter and smoother.

    Here is a Mass card that I made for my dad a few years ago when he passed...

    Never mind that serious look on his face... My Dad loved to laugh more than anyone :)

    Hap, that's a great card. I just got back from NOLA a couple weeks ago and went to the Natonal WWII museum and they had a B-17 hanging. Beautiful airplane, huge too!!

    Love the card Hap. My Dad was a20 year Navy veteran, on the Missouri when the treaty was signed. Thanks to all Veterans this weekend. Central PA is also cold tonight, but looking forward to a weekend warmup and some good Egging with family.

    Go tigers. Plan on doing the same. Working on my bbq area, cook some Q, have a drink and listen to some good baseball. Miggy has been on fire.

    Sanchez was close.  Great job.  Tomorrow night hopefully the Red Wings will put away the Blackhawks.  Working at a cattle branding tomorrow in Wyoming.  Monday I will take my first crack at a brisket.  USDA Choice 7 pounder.  Planning on salt & pepper.  225 until the outside color is what I want  then wrap in foil to 195.  Will finish in towels in a cooler for a few hours.  

    Hap--I tried a 1502 Ruby cigar from a store I found when I was in Michigan last week.  Not bad.

    Awesome card Hap.  My Dad flew 52 missions out of Watton, England in B-17s as a navigator.  He's a hero but in his mind he was just doing what all the boys his age were doing.  Still kicking at 89 and I hope I get to wish him another 20 happy Memorial days.

    To all who gave their lives, who were willing to give their lives, and those who waited back home for them, God bless and salud!!

    To be honest I just shed a tear when I saw that. I am a history buff and what those guys suffered in the 8th Air Force was words that I can not say.

    In today's society I can not imagine asking a 19 year old too come to the aid of his country.
