We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

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

  • The question of pizza dough could be right up there with "what is the sound of one hand clapping" as far as a baffling one. There are a few things I have learned... but still have yet to perfect, no matter what your dough recipe (half cake flour,…
  • You're right. I shouldn't have said "break out" I should have implied that I now have had the egg for 4 years and perhaps that is why my thermometer is off. In fact, I let my thermometer go off for so long BECAUSE i was grilling in 20 degrees, …
  • I agree with everyone's answer. It is an investment, but it's the best you'll make for any grill. I would take it over any of those outdoor kitchen monsters you see in the hardware stores anyday. A weber is great, but doesn't compare. I kept min…

  • Thanks, It all helped. I ended up making a meat pyramid with a lot of skewers and then tossed on another chunk of applewood. They were pretty huge spare ribs so it was tricky. They are still on, but I'll let you all know if they were as good as t…
  • Whoa whoa whoa... I said using the egg as a SMOKER... I've already done several pork loins, chickens, steaks, and a pizza. Just nothing slow and low. I may be stupid, but not crazy! I can't go that long without grilled food.
  • Theft or vandalism, really. I do fine during the day... it was the thought of not being able to do an overnight pork butt that got me down.
  • Sometimes you just have to verify the obvious answer, you know? Thanks. If you see a news story about a thief apprehended with a 4lb pork butt with an internal temp of 115... you'll know who the victim is! Still... if anyone was crazy enough to t…
