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!

  • I have a large in a nest and when I do a low and slow it is with the guru installed sandwiched between the screen and the slider. It takes some effort to install it that way, and no way it can fall out. The top vent is barely open. Unless the egg decides to spontaneously disintegrate, or someone tampers with it, or is damaged by a falling tree limb, or gets knocked over by a bear, or a one-in-a-billion meteor strike then it should be fine.

    Did one of those two in the nests start that?

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I've seen that happen in a table where the hole was too tight to allow for expansion. That was a questionable design choice not to support the bottom on the mini.

    What was you using to support this mini?
  • SmokeyPittSmokeyPitt Posts: 7,860
    That stand used to come with the mini, but they have since changed the design.

    I'm in the better to be safe than sorry camp.
    My egg table is metal, it won't burn.
    My table sits on a concrete patio, it won't burn.
    Yet I make it a point to stay home during the entire cook and I've never cooked a meat so large I had to let it run during the night while I sleep.
    Call me paranoid if you must, but playing it safe with fire is the only way for me.

    @SmokeyPitt‌ Thanks, I did not know that. That must have been in my pre-egging days.
  • I haven't done any overnight cooks and now am paranoid about doing one!
