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

Ok to cut loose?

I've done 3 cooks with my new LBGE. Is it now safe to cook at elevated temperatures? The first 3 cooks were done at 300-400 degrees.

    Go nuts! The gasket is as cured as it will get.

    And just stand by to replace your gasket once you start doing some serious cooking.

    RRP + Rutland = good to go!

    I think the new gaskets (lighter gray color) don't have to be cured or broken in like the others. so either way you're good to go :)

    I always break in my gaskets with high heat. Let it fly.
