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.

Do you have to wait a full 24 hrs to start up the BGE after replacing the gasket?

    A lot of folks say yes. And I believe BGE says 24 hours.

    I have cooked on a new replacement in 7 hours time and again (different egg) in 10 hours time.

    Both cooks were at lower temps.

    Wait as long as you can.

  • Thanks.

    Replaced mine this afternoon. I just put 2 butts on. I won.'t gp too hot, but a low and slow has been okay for me
