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!

    I was told Keith's Ace Hardware in Salado has one ordered. Told them sure wanted one for the Salado EggFest in March.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, just added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

    How wide in the XXL Egg anyway? Are we looking at 30 inches?

    Large enough to roast a whole hog, 20 racks of ribs or 40 burgers, the Big Green Egg XXL is a culinary tool unlike any other! Chefs and backyard grillers alike will be astonished to see a stainless steel cooking grid that measures 29.25 inches / 74.3 cm in diameter for a whopping 672 square inches / 4336 cm2 of cooking area. Like all EGGs in the Big Green Egg family, the XXL EGG can handle virtually any cooking need, from cooking low and slow for hours to flash searing at ultra high temperatures. As fans have come to expect, the XXL accommodates numerous EGGcessories designed exclusively for the EGG — including a XXL Plate Setter — utilizing the full versatility of the EGG and making culinary possibilities endless. Its patented components and state-of-the-art ceramic technologies provide the best cooking results and will not deteriorate over time. And, of course, as the XXL is constructed from the same ultra high-quality ceramics as the other five EGG sizes, it comes with the same best-in-class limited lifetime warranty.

  • I watched Dr BBQ cook on one at Eggtoberfest in Atlanta last month. That thing was huge.

    You must do a lot of big cooks!  I have an XL and am yearning for a medium or small for when I am cooking for 2.  It takes 10 lb of lump to fill the XL.  How much do you think to fill an XXL?  Also must weigh 350-400 lbs, would need its own trailer to go anywhere!

    @cookinbob, I also have an XL and I love it! The problem is, I cook for the holidays and it's 40-60 people. The main dish is beef ribs, and I need more cooking space. As with every egghead I want to cook the whole meal on an BGE and the XL just doesn't cut it.

    I am jealous.  I'd love to cook for that large a group.  If we get past a dozen, we'd call a caterer!  I think I could handle it, but SWMBO would be a basket case!

    @cookinbob, we also cater every family event, but BBQ is so good everyone insist that I make it. I must say it makes me very happy.

  • I'm sure it will hold at least 20 pounds as my large will hold 8.8 no problem. Would love to have one for the holidays and game days but the sticker must be like 2000
