Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Is your Big Green Egg still cooking even though it’s cold out? We hope so! We love the opportunity to cook heartier meals on the EGG during the winter. Some recipes you definitely want to try are Double Smoked Potatoes, BBQ Chicken Soup, Monte Cristo Sandwich and Breakfast Quiche. These are sure to keep your stomach warm & full! We can’t wait to see what winter-inspired dishes you cook!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the History of the EGG Museum and the Culinary Center too!  3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340.

Another newbie..

Hey everyone, not new to grilling or smoking but just purchased a large BGE and wanted to see what you guys are doing with them. Looks like a great forum with some really experienced members. Have used and own several Weber kettles, WSM, electric smoker, and gassers in my time, but this looks like fun! Thanks for having me.

    I think you will find using the Egg is remarkably easy. Don't fuss too much about getting exact temp, tho the Egg often can be fired to a very specific temp, and stay there for hours or (for low temp cooks) days. And the moisture retention makes so many foods better.

  • Welcome man.  I'm new too.  I am big into cooking pizza on it, grilling vegetables, pork shoulders, ribs, chickens, shoot anything.  Sometimes I throw some woodchips to smoke and other times not.  As someone else said its an extremely versatile cooking instrument. I'm sure you will love it more and more as you cook with it.

    Welcome my friend! There has been a lot of new eggowners lately. I am glad to see that BGE is getting out there more and more everyday, the more cooks the better we will all be. This (I hope) says something for the U.S. economy.
