It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

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

  • Eggerty said: Also my own personal opinion but I would stay away from credit cards. More or less just like another thread on Rich Dad Poor Dad or Dave Ramsey. Credit cards get more people into trouble and such a waste (interest rate) unless y…
  • @oldgeezeystax this is my perspective and I know some will disagree with me and that is fine.  I suggest 100% joint accounts on everything.  I personally believe once you get married, there is no more mine and yours...just an "us".  I know my wife…
  • @Ragtop99 I completely understand. Trust me, I like to know my financial info is safe as well. Just trying to clarify with what (little) knowledge I had about the app. From what I have seen, if you sync your bank account, all it does is pull transac…
  • Chubbs said: Thanks for posting. With the addition of my second son in a month I am looking into additional budgeting options. Great timing  Congrats with the second child. We really got serious on budgeting when we decided that my wife wo…
  • Ragtop99 said: Does the app collect data about you?  I don't use any online tools (budget, tax, portfolio mgmt) in an effort to keep my financial data private. Not sure what kind of information you are talking about, but you do not have t…
  • You got this!  Be ready for the compliments.  Merry Christmas.
  • I wonder what would happen if I took a hammer and hit my egg as hard as I could??? #bustedgate
  • Just be sure you have enough space for the egg to vent between it and the paver.  http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1166805/pyrophoric-charring-alternate-title-why-did-my-house-burn-down/p1
  • Sorry to hear that.  I myself am almost one year removed (Sept. 12) from losing a coworker.  We had set beside each other for over three years and he was a great guy.  Got a call late in the evening that he had a motorcylce wreck.  Went straight to …
  • @Legume‌ you can't go wrong with an 870...this much I am sure of!
  • I use one half paper towel soaked in olive oil and it will get hot enough to sear in about 15 minutes max. Sometimes it is slow to light but I think that is more the air conditions than anything. I could be 100% wrong but that is my theory.
  •   Legume said: I just shoot one of those Turkish o/u from Academy that I picked up ~ 6 years ago, I haven't spent the $ on a decent gun yet but when I do, I know I'll get a Benelli. If you really want a good gun, get you a quality over/under. …
  • I am always looking forward to dove season.  I got five yesterday.  We were not in a very hot field but it was still a lot of fun! 
  • I switched to Rockwood a few months back.  If there is not a store around you that carries it, you can order five bags at $19.99/bag and get free shipping from firecraft.com.  I really like it.  I know a lot of people on here like Ozark Oak and Roya…
  • I once had dreams of having a nice table or out door kitchen with my egg...until I started seeing pics and hearing stories about peoples' tables catching fire.  I know there is a correct way to build one (stone PLUS an air-gap) but you better be sur…
  • OmahaOne said: Look to see if an Eggfest is going on around your area. He can get a great deal off the price by buying a demo egg. The demo eggs are brand new and only used at the Eggfest. I'm doing that this weekend at the Indy Eggfest. …
  • stemc33 said: cottonseed said: tell him to get on craigslist and look for a used one. Used is great if it's a deal that's too good to pass up. For me, the warranty is worth the extra money though. What has him really cons…
  • You all talked me into it.  I signed up yesterday.  My wife was even all for it and really excited to go too.
  • I live about two hours away and really considering going this year as a taster.  How many cooks do they usually have?
  • I know I can...I lost 65lbs over about 6-9 months once just by cutting portion sizes dramatically and exercising. Getting my mind right is 75% of the battle. Thanks for the encouragement.
  • I told here I could definitely cut the portions down but I can't cut it out. She went vegan a couple of weeks prior so I knew we were not going to totally agree.
  • vapilotda said: Shop vac with the bag in it. The bags will hold quite a bit and it makes for easy disposal. I use a shop vac with a bag in it as well.  I tried going without a bag one time and it almost ruined my filter.  I use the bags …
  • I would just take the dog to the vet.  It could really be anything.  As an example, we gave one of our dogs a ham bone to chew on one time and long story short, she swallowed little pieces of bone and it made her sick in the form of vomitting and di…
  • westernbbq said: cast iron grate and a hot charcoal fire yield those awesome results- wow, that looks pretty to put this into perspective, a steak like that in a restaurant is minimum $30, and probably closer to $45.  I can buy a pack of thre…
  • NPHuskerFL said: Nicely done. What were you running as far as temp? I cooked at about 600 degrees. Two minutes, flip, two minutes, flip, close all vents for three minutes. Take it up and let it rest for about 10-15 minutes and enj…
  • johnmitchell said: I agree100%..Now try layering some Fogo lump around the vents ( they are big pieces,and allow good air flow)...then fill up with Rockwood. This works great for me on my low and slows. I use a napkin soaked in olive oil a…
  • What is the chances it could have just been moisture developing on the egg from the air...sweating?  I don't know where you are at but if this happened when there was a lot of pollen like there is right now in TN, that could explain the yellow resid…
  • @stlcharcoal may be able to help you out.
  • Prepare to be overwhelmed with comments.I have just switched from BGE to Rockwood and have really been pleased with it.
  • KiterTodd said: Does anyone ever cook their steaks frozen?  I know, I know...but a friend of mine years ago insisted that is how most of the steak houses cook so why shouldn't you?  I have done this, and other than having to cook a little longer…
