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

    As long as you can piece it together and it stands up in the Egg, you will be fine. I had one in about 5 pieces a while back, it was a little confusing after a couple beers sometimes, but it worked :P

    What Basscat said. The warranty only comes in when it is unusable.

    Go ahead and use it all you want. Let it blow apart in pieces! It's covered under warranty! Just call your dealer or the mothership Monday and get it replaced.

    I agree, go for it!
    As you prob know, it is a warranty replacement, assuming you bought it new.

    Come by more often Joe.

    I recently JB welded mine back together. After a half dozen cooks it broke up again but in different areas...the JB weld cracks held. Looks like I need some more JB weld.
