Nice to see so many new eggheads. Congratulations and Welcome.

When I got my first egg it took me a while to find all the ‘stuff’ discussed here on the forum. What follows below are links to some of the sites with great information, recipes and goodies/accessories.

By all means the references below are not complete. It is a good start and in no particular order. I am trying to focus on direct BGE products and forum members. If you come upon a site that should be included let me know.

Each of the following sites have great recipes and information. Some suggestions are provided but each site has much more.

The links below have much more than the quick reference mentioned below. Take the time to visit and explore the sites below.

Please copy this and email it to yourself for future reference or Bookmark this post.

The Naked Whiz site has a huge amount of information to help the Big Green Egg user. Please take time to visit and read the articles. Many of your questions and techniques are described in detail.

Many answers to your questions - make sure you visit the entire site at

What can I cook on an egg or not sure what I want to cook don’t miss “BBQ Porn” (this one completely ‘G’ rated). Rick has gone to great lengths at Ricks Tropical Delight - Then click on the BBQ Porn link – you won’t want to miss this.

A big thanks to Thirdeye for the information provided at ‘Playing With Fire And Smoke’. You will need to scroll down the front page to locate the list many recipes and how to’s.
