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

  • Separate the top from the hinge and then the hinge from the bottom. I always invert the bottom to it rides on a larger base on the floor of the vehicle. Separate all the pieces either by spreading them out or stack them with blankets for cushioning.…
  • The biggest reason I saw for leaving it open is if you have to move it. I am very strong, but those pieces are really heavy. It could be designed with a removable piece across the opening that would be removed by pulling the screws. If you are in th…

  • Very nice. Some great variations, I think I might have put and open end on mine. I moved once since building it and that would have been a nice option. Strong as I am that bottom piece is heavy.

  • I found that I had to space my egg away from the house more because of the lid opening more than the heat. Other posters have voiced the more important concern of heat from the chimney. There are posts about house fires with pictures. Give your self…
  • I pondered the same question for weeks while I searched for the best price on mine. I chose the large and have not been disappointed. I would do the same again, and if money was no object I would get two smaller ones than one XL. Easier to move, coo…
    in WHAT BGE ? Comment by Crash April 2009
  • I smoked a whole hog of about 26 lbs but cut it in half so it would fit in the Large I own. It was a feral hog and wanted it cooked hard so I put it on at 1800hrs and took it off at 0200hrs. I cooked it at 250 with water in the drip pan. It was pull…
  • Good morning!
  • Very interesting post. Both the tradition of giving knives to friends, and then the part about not being able to carry a pocket knife.Whew God bless American gun loving culture.LOL Remember we still allow English to join the colonies. Even at this …
  • Tramontina was selling a very good quality set at a good price. I bought two sets one to keep and one as gifts. Don't forget to include a easy to use sharpener a cheap knife that is sharp is better than a German steel one that is dull. Look at the C…
  • I shorten soaking time by using hot water. I have a hot water dispenser and can wait on soaking chunks until I am ready to start the egg. This lets me focus on food prep then grill. The soak time is then about thirty minutes give or take.
  • I used pressure treated fence pickets from home depot. They were OK but had the tendency to split. I would have countersunk the heads more if I were to do it over. I used stainless deck screws and let it dry six months and used a deck stain left ove…
  • Good looking food and good looking garden. My egg is jealous. :whistle:
  • Just a note, the Galvanized tip is not just a suggestion. Galvanized metal will off-gas toxic chemicals under high heat. I just removed the fire ring and rested the grate on the edges of the egg. Be careful it's hot down there.
  • Snap peas will require the foil so you don't loose any between the grates. I would do them separately so they have different tastes. Whole broc is good direct. Put the stems in the center they cook more slowly.
  • Hey Smokin, Try Cafe Dumonde from New Orleans. It is very economical and has a great strong flavor. I like the chicory taste and it comes in decaf as well. Thanks for asking
  • I do brisket just because I like it. Its just lucky everyone else does too. I have not had leftovers more than once. I cannot find a brisket to big...

  • I have also found stirring the coals after some are lit spreads the fire faster and accelerates the process.
  • Thanks for the greetings. Here’s to my brothers in arms around the world, standing ready to do violence on my behalf so I can be home safe with my family this year. They are fighting the good fight. God Bless America.
  • It's like Chrome on a Harley. How much chrome is enough? Just one more piece! B)
  • Great picture! I need to visit a real butcher or become a better hunter! I want to try that with a long slow pulled pork recipe. Kind of a pork pulling in minature.
  • 25 plus pounds of food on the egg...whew. My wife asks "will he be disappointed if they don't ooh and ahh over the egg?" I told her with that much food from the grill it will be the topic of the day. She still seems in awe over the BGE and it's foll…
  • Justin, Here is my input. The range of temperatures that this grill attain will allow you to use it for far more than traditional cooking systems. Temperature control on the BGE allows you to cook without having to monitor it very closely. This is…
  • I had no problems with my first run on my new egg. Like any new cooking tool you should crank it to operation temp for thirty minutes before you add food. This removes anything in it or on it that came from the shipping or handling.
  • I have done two, and they worked out at about one hour per pound. Good luck
