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 my steaks at 550-600 and a best guess is at least 45-60 minutes. Nest time I do a high heat burnoff will time it. Just guessing!

  • Atleast a few hours. What are you cooking? At that temp you shouldn't need much time. I do whole chickens in mine all of the time. They usually take an hour at 400ish, and I still have plenty of fuel left over.

    Kinda hard to say. Depends on how the lump stacks up in the egg. What are you planning to cook?

    Rob, I've held 600 for a couple hours doing a clean burn and still had lump left. You gonna crank out some of those great pizzas on the small?

    You probably won't make 5 hours but it's worth the effort. The biggest problem I see is opening it a lot may cause you to spike the temp and have to try to get it back down. Good luck ;) Let us know

    You will need to reload for sure.

  • I do all my burn tests in a small Egg at 400 degrees. The various brands have lasted between 4 and 9 hours.
