Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

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

I've lost my best friend and grilling buddy...


Elvis, our Auusie-healer passed yesterday after 17 loyal years of being nothing but a friend.

Always there to help when Egging in the backyard, gonna miss that ole boy.


(Sorry for the OT)

    Sorry for your loss.  I know how hard it is to lose a loyal friend.
