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

  • Hi cpbatl, I keep a fire brick on my table next to the egg and a fire brick on the lower shelf near the bottom of the egg. When I pull my grate off I simply set it on the fire brick. Same with the plate setter which goes on the other fire brick…
  • After many years of use if my two eggs (1 large & 1 small) were stolen (gasp) tonight - I'd buy 2 new eggs tomorrow without hesitation. OctoberGlory

  • JR, After you get your MAPP torch order the Club from the folks at the link below - you'll be very glad you did. MAPP torch + Club = Quick, Easy & Dependable fire starting.…
  • Lockjaw, Like you it's just me and the wife. We started out with a large and years later added a small - great combination for the two of us. OctoberGlory
  • Brett, I did a 4-1/2 lb. brisket on my large the other weekend that had a beautiful smoke ring. It was 9 hours indirect at 240 dome temps with a couple chunks of mesquite to get the smoke going at the start. Tasty. OctoberGlory
  • Citizen Q, Installed the Rutland on my large years ago - no problems. OctoberGlory
  • Frank, I bought a cover about 8 years ago. I think I used it for a week or two and haven't used it since. My large and small are on my deck fully exposed to the weather all the time…absolutely no problems. OctoberGlory
  • Nancy, Did you put your pizza stone on an inverted plate setter or directly on the grate? OctoberGlory
  • If there is no roof over the patio - then no problem - the fence is not in danger. Don't worry about damage to the egg in a move as they're very, very durable. Just secure it so it doesn’t bounce around. My wife loves our egg. Hamburgers for l…
  • It won't help you now but with a new Dutch Oven you'll want to check out RFD TV's Dutch Oven & Camp Cooking Show. Everything is done over an open fire, but there are some great recipes and you can easily adapt them to egg cooking. OctoberGlo…
  • I'd do the spare ribs early - then wrap'm in foil and put in a cooler to rest. Then put on the country ribs timed to come off when you're about ready to eat. When you take the country ribs off - pull out your spare ribs, brush with BBQ sauce and f…
  • I'm not familiar with Elgin Sausage, but I do bratwursts, hot dogs and kielbasas with excellent results. I usually just bring the egg up to cooking temperature and put those puppies on direct. Any flare-ups are easily extinguished by closing the v…
  • If portability of your egg is important go will the Small. If that’s not an issue I'd go with the Medium. I cook for 2 on a Large 80% of the time (20% on my Small) and it's nice to cook extra for leftovers. My Small can get crowed pretty darn q…
  • You made the right choice. I started with a Large, bought a Medium, sold the Medium and then added a Small. Now I've got a great combination with the Large and the Small that meets our needs. Enjoy. OctoberGlory
  • The cooking grate on my small egg in the nest with casters is 25" from the ground. I'm over 6' and it is a tad bit low, but not bad. The big plus is that I can easily look in the top and see how the cook is progressing. When ever I get around t…
  • Coat with Kosher Salt and Lawry's Seasoned Pepper. This is a nice combo - simple and very tasty. It really lets the flavor of the meat come through. OctoberGlory
  • I agree with Ron - you'll want that manual seal button. I've got an older machine and I use the manual seal button often. I like to smoke two chickens at once. We'll de-bone them; make a meal then vacuum seal the leftovers in two cup bags for t…
  • No special techniques needed for Bubba burgers. Fire up the egg around 350 and cook as usual. These burgers produce a tremendous amount of smoke from all the fat dripping on the coals. Quick and easy - enjoy. OctoberGlory
