Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you had a hoppy Easter and are ready to spring into warm weather cooking mode! There’s nothing better than spending time outdoors with the sweet aroma of fresh cooked Ribs. Baseball season is also underway, so it's the perfect time to try out some chicken wing variations! We have Jamaican Jerk, Lemon Pepper, Fired-Up Wings and even a Whiskey Onion and Chicken Steak if wings aren't your thing. Bon appetit!

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

New Egg Wanna-be

First time poster and am well overdue to purchase an egg! Looking for a little purchasing advice. Many of you recommend eggfests for a purchase but the closest one to me is Pensacola and I don't think I will get there. Would love some advice as to where to buy a lge near New Orleans and what is a fair price to pay.

    Easiest way to do it is do a dealer search for one in your area. Call them up and see what the prices are. I called 3 or 4 and found one that discounted them 50 bucks over the others.

    Keep an eye on Craigslist in the New Orleans and other surrounding areas.  I just bought a large that was in excellent condition for $260 while vacationing in Gulf Shores.  I checked the Mobile Craigslist for that one.

    I sent some info via PM.

    We bought our large from number 2 on this list - no service complaints - they gave us a new plate setter when the old one broke no questions asked:
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.
