Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

The 17th Annual EGGtoberfest was amazing - here are the highlights Click Here

    MARVW,[p]CONGRATULATIONS![p]You'll find a great number of handy accessories. The two I use most are the platesetter, and the grill extender. After that, a MAPP torch for lighting, and a pizza stone. Then, any of the following: instant or quick read thermometer, remote thermometer, long tongs, long heavy temperature resistent gauntlets, gure/stoker, Dutch Oven, fish grill, etc.[p]gdenby

  • MARVW,[p]I bought the MAPP torch about 6 cookings ago, and I swear it is the best way to light for a cook, and is a MUST item IMHO. I found that if you light some lump from the previous cook, it doesnt spark near as much as new lump. 3 spots in a triangle for about 30-40 seconds each will start your lump nicely, then I put on the new lump on top of the fire spots........Eggcitable Boy

    MARVW,
    If you have any money left over, I'd run out & buy a keyboard with Caps Lock key. ;)[p]Best of luck with the Egg - you will not regret it. I've had mine for five years & love it.

  • Fairalbion,
    I am sorry if i did something wrong using all caps, my first time entering a post. I read it all the time and just getting started.

    MarvW,[p]Not a big deal. Typing in all caps signifies that you are yelling. I believe it applies to all e-mail, forums etc.[p]

  • Congrats!
    I find lighting my lumps in a chimney inside the BGE using Weber lighter cubes (I get them at BBQ Galore) works great! Also, the thermometer that sticks through the hole in the lid is a must. I just started using an external digital thermometer (made by Poldor) which uses a probe in the meat that extends outside the BGE so you don't have to open the BGE to check the temp.

    MARVW,[p]Who cares if you use CAPs or not? Certainly not me. E-mail me and I'll send you the checklist I use for competitions. Must have items for backyard egging. [p]Congrats!
