Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Get ready to turn up the heat as we dive into August. While there are only a few weeks left to perfect those tailgate recipes, summer isn’t over yet! Two things we’ll be making this month are Chile Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops and Bell Pepper Kabobs. Then, relax after a cookout with a cool dessert cooked on your EGG - Ice Cream Sandwiches! You can mix and match your favorite cookie flavors with ice cream flavors. Simple, yet delicious!

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

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
