Hello All,

I have had my egg for just over a week and LOVE it! My birthday is coming up and I want to know what kind of tools and eggcessories I should ask for. I would like to upgrade my tools as well as get the hotplate thing. What else should I ask for? Thanks!


  • I highly recommend a Thermapen.
    When you say hotplate, do you mean the plate setter for indirect cooking? I have one and it works very well, but if I had to do it over again I believe I would go with a pizza stone on the spider from
    A leave in the meat remote thermometer is great for cooking big chunks of meat such as a brisket or pork butt.
    If you have not done so yet, got to The Naked Whiz's site and drink it all in.
    Happy egging.

    I second that. All of it.

    Or if you have some big spenders, a mini is freekin awesome. :woohoo:
  • Greetings,
    My standard answer to this question is "One of each." An EGG is like any other hobby/habit, you will ALWAYS see something in the most remote circumstances and your first thought will be, How can I use that on the EGG?
    The most important thing to get is a place or cabinet to store all of your egg toys in. LOL
    Happy Hunting!
  • I've had my egg for 3 months. have place setter, raised grill, pizza stone & thermapen

    if I could only have one it would be the thermapen, next the place setter
  • Thank you all for the responses! I definitely agree that I will probably end up buying one of each!
