  • the xl egg is the best two zone ceramic grill on the market.   the large lump grate, almost 18" dia. provides a greater area for lump at a consistent depth.  So, when you sear a steak or burger, it's the same temps across the grid.  No fading grill…
  • We've been working with BJ's for a couple months.  He is currently working on a website to increase distribution across the great white north.   He is carrying more than just CGS, also - smokeware, kickash, dizzy pig and bge. t

  • all it is missing is a wet beer bottle ring topside..........lol great job t
  • wokking is one of those hidden ceramic grill secrets.  It's a fun cook that doesn't take a large amount of time.  Plus, it can be a healthy alternative to just proteins all the time.  Dig the cook, I'd hit it........lol t
  • I understand your frustration on getting our products into the United Kingdom and Europe.   We do our best to keep the rates low.  It's difficult, given all the recent changes with the shipping carriers.  We keep looking for alternatives.  Grat…

  • thanks to all for responding.  it's much appreciated.  Here is one more option.  if your egg is a large and the platesetter broke clean at the leg. you can get the PSWoo or PSWoo-CI.  It should work as long as the platesetter can rest on the 3 half…

  • blind99 said: So what's the price on this new thing? $1200 new? doesnt seem like a great value anymore.  I really like  the divide and conquer system. All the other features are nice but not game changing. I certainly don't need a 6 year old r…
  • I dig the Costco Prime briskets.  you can tell a great meal is coming when they giggle taking them off the grid....... t
  • couple thoughts for you. eliminate the grate,  put the wok in the woo's lower ring.  you want a good steak fire going under the wok.   you can spread the fire out a bit if you like. a bigger wok will let you use the side of the wok to manage the c…

  • Photo Egg said: Just a guess, but seems like these bands would cost BGE less to make. If these function like the bands on my XL I would not want them. the bands are single movement, not double movement like the xl.   I found they handled…
  • bird needs more time upside down with skin toward the heat.  if you cover and tent after you pull it, good chance the skin will go soft from the moisture trapped under the cover. I start my birds upside down on the extender, 5-10 minutes to give th…
