National BBQ Month sure was tasty! We hope you got to try just as many new BBQ recipes as we did and some old favorites as well. If not, you can find all our BBQ recipes here and try them out all summer long. One of our favorites was Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise and Ted Reader’s Rum Injected Sweet Potatoes. As the weather’s heating up, use your EGG for a cool treat-Ice Cream Sandwiches! Keep an eye out for some Father’s Day recipes from chefs & their dads, coming soon!

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

  • I did 15 lbs last week. I would go for about 30 lbs max on a large. Get a BBQ GURU. This toy will save your life. At about 18 hours I had to add more lump. I wrapped the shoulders in foil and filled in some lump. It was done about 3 hours later…
  • Car Wash Mike, I just finished up 15 lbs of pork shoulder. I was using a GURU and it held at 225 for 22 hours.(had to add more lump at 18 hours) It was a very low and slow cook. I think there is an 8 hour cook floating out there somewhere for po…
  • Don Sparks, I was outa fuel. I opened up the Egg and only 10 small lumps were left unlit. I foil wrapped the shoulders and refilled with some lump I lit in another grill. Put it all back and waited till they were at 200. Man does my wife like the…

  • [img]C:BBQIMG_1775.JPG, C:BBQIMG_1774.JPG[/img] Well here's what it looks like inside. Had a few samples from the grill. Had to fight off my wife after she had a taste. I put them in foil and put some new lump in and away we go. It looks like te…

  • Thanks, I got it Thursday and have used it 3 times already. I just didn't want to give up any space on the grill.[p]

  • Thanks for rhe info.. My ribs came out close.they were a little dry.I try higher temp next time and they almost fell off bone..I think I may have over done the hickory wood chunks..(Five)..Maybe a few less there too..[p]S.

  • Pardon the spelling I was rushed..
  • mcfish,[p]Here in AZ, they know what a brisket is, but don't have a clue what a Boston Butt is. (neither do I) I have purchased several briskets from the Costco in Glendale. In fact, I request a brisket still in the cryovac (they usually trim them…
