We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • For Easter last year, my family loved Alton Brown's City Ham recipe. Pretty easy to pull off, just set the Egg up for indirect cooking and replace the word "oven" with the words "the Big Green Egg, World's Best Smoker and Grill." If your ham is fr…
  • Tim, I would probably be concerned with accuracy of your thermometer. Have you checked it's calibration lately? Boil a pot of water, as it reaches a rolling boil, measure the water temp it should be 210-212 (assuming no extreme altitude adjustmen…
  • Kim, Thanks for the info, I doubt it lasts that long too, but want to be safe... David
  • Good morning Spring Chicken, From this morning's St. Louis paper. Watch out for two-timing Nigerians...I don't think your money is on the way. 'Boyfriend' stuck in Nigeria David
  • Dan, I went with the four casters because the Home Depot near me only sold the 3x3 legs in 30" lengths. I needed the extra 2" of the casters to get the overall height of work surface up high enough. Anyway, building a table is like smoking a…
  • Dan, The table is looking great! Like any project it always takes longer than expected. If you are still looking for slate I picked up a piece at Mid-America Slate over in Chesterfield Valley. It was the best deal of the project, less than $10…
  • Here's a quick tip I use when all else, including eyes, fails. Press and hold the CTRL key and spin the wheel on your mouse, or press and hold the CTRL key and press the "+" or "-" key. It will make the text larger or smaller. Works in both Inter…
  • I looked in Ray's (big-time bbq cookbook) book and the recipe called for "granulated brown sugar". I think this brownulated stuff is Domino's version of a granulated brown sugar which sounds like regular ol' brown sugar sans moisture. I don't thi…
  • bill, you are quick on the draw...news to me too. Fla Egger I think I used regular brown sugar when I made his rub and it worked well. The good doctor hang out here, but I think usually on the old forum. you may want to ping him there. here'…
  • She has my two votes, good luck!
  • Marge, Here's a yeast-less crust. It makes a thin & crisp crust, hope this is what you're looking for... Crust: 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon Baking powder 2 teaspoo…
  • Dave, My brain must be a little slow...Head out I-44 west to highway 109 look for a restaurant called Supersmokers on the north side of the Interstate. These guys have a couple of huge KCBS trophies. Dr. BBQ did a book signing there awhile back…
  • Hey Eggtucky, A Smoke n Fire store in St. Louis sells this as well. I think it is a private label that comes from southern Missouri, possibly Steelville (Struemph's maybe?). I've burned a couple of bags it's ok for both lo and slo and higher te…
  • Wile E, A couple of more thoughts...when I was new to the egg, I read a several enlightening pages on fire building. They are all on naked whiz's site. The first by Elder Ward (as part of his pulled pork posting) on building a fire. The Naked…
  • This bean recipe is from a bbq place (small chain actually) called the 17th Street Bar and Grill in Southern IL. I pulled it from the St. Louis paper awhile back. They are awesome! Warning this recipe makes a ton and could easily serve 16-20. …
  • John, The reason for not oiling or greasing up a pizza stone is the oil/grease will smoke in higher temps. The care of a pizza stone is fairly easy. After the cook, scrape it clean with a wire brush or scrapper. If need to wipe off, only use…
  • There are several great health benefits to cooking on an egg... First good mental health from the satisfaction of building a fire and cooking some of the Creator's great creations (meat veggies, fruit) over it and in it (hickory, apple and other …
  • John, Welcome! If you didn't purchase any accessories with the Egg then the following are required items: Grill Gripper, Ash tool, and Plate setter. The Plate setter is vital for indirect cooks. Then a way to light the fire some use a charc…
