It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

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

  • It's not uncommon for people that work in these eBay Warehouses to see items go for a high price, snap a couple pictures or take the pictures off the listing and put them on Craigslist for much less hoping someone will send them the money and they'l…
  • Great idea, great write up and great pictures.  I'll be trying this one out myself in the near future.  I like that burner you have for the chimney start too, might need to get me one of those.
  • The sauce turned out great and everyone like it.  It turned out that 4 lbs of tomatoes doesn't make enough sauce for 9 hungry Italians so I had to call an audible and some canned tomatoes to the sauce but it was still a really good result.  The sauc…
  • 2 lbs each of ground pork, beef, and veal for the meatballs I probably rolled the a little bigger than normal. 46 meatballs on the egg at 350 with a couple chunks of post oak prior to going into the sauce.
  • Just getting started here's 4lbs of tomatoes. I'm going to par boil, skin, core and hand crush cooking the meatballs in the sauce. More pics to follow as we progress just using my iPad for pics so they may not be high quality.
  • I love some Monkey bread, we usually do it as part of Christmas breakfast.  I've never done it with ice cream before, I'll have to give that a try.  Great pics also.
  • Thatgrimguy said: I'm so excited for this time. My daughter is only 16 weeks old. The first child in my family since me! It's amazing how much they can change you. Ohh yeah, great looking meal too! Congrats on your daughter.  My son was b…
  • We split a half of beef with our friends at the beginning of the year. The sirloin is a little leaner than you get at the store but still delicious. The only mistake we made was not knowing better and not giving the butcher instructions online how w…
  • ummm this will be interesting.
  • Thatgrimguy said: Reverse sear. Egged these steaks indirect up to 110 internal because they were thin. Then on to the Blackstone on high with butter. The wife made some amazing homemade mac and cheese and I threw some veggies on the griddle f…
  • Grate temp would be warmer.   Here's a good explanation of why http://www.thermoworks.com/blog/2013/06/dome-temperature-grill-temperature/ Edit: @fishlessman gave the better answer.  That's still a good article to read regarding temps.

  • There was a member that built a table for the Minimax a while back.  I'm trying to find the thread and if I do I'll post it.  If you're just looking for shelf height though I'd just measure how tall the carrier is and do the top of your shelf at abo…

  • cazzy said: Focker said: NPD?  Weak cheddar.  I think he's got empathy....for all of you.   This thread makes me feel good about myself.   The jealousy and envy towards BGC reeks, and it takes alot to stimulate my olfactory receptors…
  • I can't imagine waiting in line for hours for some food let alone giving someone $50-$150 in addition to the cost of the food for it.  I've never been there but I'm sure it's good, people make it sound like it's some sort of drug or something, maybe…

  • We call Costco the $200 club, we never seem to get out of there for under $200 but it seems like you get a lot for you money and we never feel ripped off about it.  I will say as a former and now as a regular shopper, Costco is a much more enjoyable…

  • A lot of brands have thought it necessary to put plastic and/or rubber gaskets around some of the openings, especially near the thermometer.  I think people that bought the Vision Kub a while back were seeing that on their grills.  Maybe there's a p…
  • I usually cut them up into quarters then bite size pieces and season them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl and just throw them in a grill basket on the egg and stir them occasionally until they are tender and done.  After they're d…
  • cazzy said: Also...she has a pretty good site.  Lots of good articles! Yeah articles...  
  • I've seen a couple of the vintage looking stove/oven combo's on a couple of YouTube channels lately.  They look cool but I think if selling your house is in the not so distant future it's not a smart choice, you'd have to find the right buyer as mos…
  • I guess I could see not understanding the humor if you're not in touch with SEC college football rivalries.  Pretty funny if you ask me.  Hasn't taken much to smoke ol smokey the past decade or so.
  • Crimsongator said: btw, do you watch The Big Bang Theory Ron? Would you be referring to the sarcasm sign???
