Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

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

What did you get for Christmas?

Finally got the AR fully loaded with extender, spider, and various ceramic stones.  Also some other goodies.  Will spend the rest of the day figuring out set-ups.image

  • Great haul, you have enough there to be rated as "armed and dangerous". Good luck with the set-ups and future cooks!

    Give Mr. Flynn a Christmas pat from us.....

  • My inlaws knocked it out of the park. I got a mini Woo and a Yeti 35. I hinted at the woo, but never mentioned anything about a Yeti, so it was a huge surprise.

    I got… burnt.
     
    A leCreuset cast-iron dutch oven has a plastic knob on the lid, which conveniently stays cool on the stovetop. It does not stay cool, however, after 55 minutes in a 350-degree oven.
     
    Ow.

    First and for most  I got to have my whole family in my house (I am blessed)!  But I got a cast iron grate for the BGE, and gift certificates  to my favorite restaurant for when I'm not egging.  
  • I got the BigGreenEgg Cookbook and BGE salt and pepper shakers ... the family knows me too well  *LOL*

    Have a prime rib roast going as we speak, an '03 chateauneuf du pape cooling, and the family around the table.  Life doesn't get any better.

    Merry Christmas to all!
  • Amaze-N-Pellet-Smoker and a customized bottle opener for the table. I am a man blessed with a perfect family. Merry Christmas all!

  • A party q and an unbelievable bone in ribeye roast.
  • A little off topic, but I did get something to put meat on the table.  A Winchester Model 10 Alaskan in 300 Win Mag.  Composite and Stainless.  My wife is amazing.  I am truely blessed.
  • I got what I really wanted from my wife and daughter, a Stoker! Now all I have to do is figure out what kind of router I need to get the signal to the porch. I love my family. The best thing by far was hugs and kisses from my two grand daughters.

    Family gave me money, which will go towards buying an adjustable rig.

    @Botch - you can replace the knob with a Le Creuset one from Amazon or buy a metal cabinet knob from HD/Lowes.

    I've seen those, but I prefer the plastic knobs as you don't need a potholder when the DO's used on the stove; I just forgot that, in the oven, the plastic would actually get hot too.

    Those don't look like the legos that I played with.

  • My wife gave me a 50 quart Yeti!!!!! I would never spend my$$$$ on one, but glad to get it. :)

  • I have shown it already on a couple posts, but I am very happy to get it; been trying for a year now.  A Tedrow Standard, seems like he is not taking any orders anymore.  The one with the dark bellows.  The other is a Tedrow Baritone I have had for a few years.

    A CGS Large Adjustable Rig with several options. An A-MAZE-N-SMOKER and dust and pellets.  (Both thanks to my very understanding and wonderful wife.)  A smoker cap.  All kinds of great BBQ rubs and stuff.  Two mini pizza stones.  I am a lucky guy.

    Oh...and a hangover.

    Merry Christmas all!

    I feel a whole lot more like I do now than I did when I got here.
