Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

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 I go to my dealer today....

Needed to reload on Dizzy Pig and some Butt Rub and I wanted to pick up a med grate for my new grid extender. I ask for the med grate and my dealer says he had a few folks come thru asking for them and I explained the group buy. He says "why don't u get the BGE Grill Extender, it's cheaper than a med grate"? I say I bought one a year ago and it didn't hold up very well. He says "take this one for free, and text me pictures of your old one". I say ok, and thank you!! So I send him the pics and he says he's glad to help. To say the least i was a bit surprised. He says come back anytime w warranty issues. So, I still need a grate for my extender. Maybe try a Weber grate from the Depot. Gotta love the warranty and great customer service.

    Wow, I wish my dealer was as good as this... I had a few issues from the get go and I think I have been flagged as a difficult customer.

    I took a buddy of mine in there and he dropped $300 on Eggcessories, I think that got me a few points. And they still carry Wicked Good.... B-)

    Great story! My dealer called me this past Saturday to ask me how to egg a beef tenderloin to surprise her husband with a new egg and dinner for Father's Day. Loved it!

    The steel lower charcoal grate for a 22in Weber worked a perfect on my large. It measures approx 17in and is heavier gauge steel than the cooking grate. Best part it was only about ten bucks.

    That's what I use as a lower fire grate in my XL.  Buy two, sandwich them together at a 90 degree angle to cross hatch.  Tack weld them in a few spots and done!  You have a high flow fire grate for under $20.

    I produce SS304 fire grates for the Small, Med, and Large......I haven't even attempted one for the XL since this Weber trick is so much easier and cheaper.  I couldn't even get the raw material of the XL grate under that.

    I'm hoping he lives up to his end of "come see me w any warranty issues", he knows I didn't buy it from a dealer. We shall see. Right now she's performing nicely at 375 w 2 bone in chicken breasts and 2 ears of corn.

    That's great!  Who is your dealer? 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I thought that was the largest charcoal I'd ever seen until I realized you had a small egg :)
