Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

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

    Caveman Smoker,
    I have advocated the torch you are using on the site for the past two years. I have one and have been using the same tank of propane for over a year and counting. You have the right one. [p]Chef Jerry

  • Caveman Smoker, What is the name brand of your torch and where does one find such? Thanks...

  • luis,[p]LOL...I said the same thing: "Why do I need a torch when I have an electric lump starter"?[p]Ladies and gentlemen...'nuff said. Had my burgers in my gut within 30 minutes.

    Caveman Smoker,
    Wear safety glasses! -RP

  • Ann,[p]I bought it on sale at Harbor Freight for $26.99 with an automatic starter. They also have another one for $18.99, but it didn't have the automatic starter...just another gadget to add to my collection.
    Caveman Smoker,[p]A Caveman & his Fire.[p]As Forrest Gump would peas and carrots.[p]I need to get me one of those, they are such attention getters when I hear them torch a fire at the competitions.
    Such an impressive sound they do make.[p]-Smitty

    <p />Caveman Smoker,
    flame on!

  • Caveman Smoker,
    The tourch ROCKS just keep the ingitor out of the egg I put mine inside a little to much and melted the insulation around the ingitor and had to repair. I have learned to just point it towards the center of the egg and never lower than the top edge and I just look away so the sparks dont get my eyes. Kaynocook says it's nuts!!!
