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!

  • Tim M, The Egg was assembled when I got it. There is/was not any sand paper on the band. I've broken 4 bolts already, so it probably is not that. More than likely the sand paper was never put on from the start. My parents picked it up for me(it was…
