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

  • I picked up one of these at WalMart for $20. It is a decent thermometer for the money. I haven't used the remote, because I just look at the temp on the display. It will go above 180 and you can set the temperature in 1 degree increments.
  • Congratulations on the purchase. I would bring some tools and plenty of garbage bags, so that you can wrap th items when they cool off. I would take the egg completely apart. Remove the top, by removing the lid attachement at the bottom, or top…
  • Sieht super aus! How did the temperature hold? From my experience with the mini the biggest problem is finding the right temperature when there is food in there. I know my settings without the food, but as soon as you get a good piece of meat i…
  • grillsportverein!?! :ohmy: Was macht ihr denn da? Von einem grill zum anderen laufen? :laugh: Welcome to the forum. I am getting ready to do my second brisket on the mini. We will see how it turns out. It is a great grill.
  • Thanks guys. I ll just leave it out. We ll see how it is later.
  • Man, I thought that you were serious for a second there. I wonder how somebody could get it and not be on here. It was gone in a couple of hours! Ahh well, just have to use the mini more.
  • Those apples look really good. Is there a receipe for them? If so, please post where to find it. Thanks.
  • My egg did not multiply. I tried to get it wet, but that didn't help either. I also feed it lump after midnight, and it doesn't turn bad. Just a great egg! If it is your first good grill, just get the large. I think it is a great grill. I had 2 g…
  • The Mini was my first BGE and it is working fine for my cooks, which are usually for myself or myself and my girlfriend. I have cooked for 4 on the Mini but it required a bit of planning. I ve cooked half a brisket on the Mini, 1 slab of ribs and …
  • I bought a 20lb bag of Lazzari and there were some really big pieces in there. I need to break them up as well. I know that somebody mentioned a good tool for it, but cant remember what it was called. Anybody remember what it was, or anybody got …
  • I am in Reno, which is about 4500ft, but I haven't done any pork butts. I ve done ribs and brisket and didn't have any problems. I did notice that my mini doesn't really go over 600 even with the vents wide open. I thought that that issue had some…
  • I have no clue what type of charcoal that is and it seems to me that the BGE is not really that popular outside the US. Congratulations on getting one and using it. I was in Germany last month and was checking out their charcoal. I din't see any b…
  • I can only talk about the Mini. I am a bit anal about the ashes, so I just take out the internals, lift the egg and shake the ashes out of the bottom vent. That makes it completely clean. I have to buy one of the ash tools, but don't feel like sp…
  • Mine was leaking pretty bad in the beggining, but with the buildup of grease/ smoke, or whatever that stuff is, is got better. It still leaks, so I will check the screw.
  • Herzlich willkommen, und gruesse aus Reno. Habe in Deutschland, in Elsdorf, ungefaehr 30km von Koeln, 4 Jahre gelebt. War letzten monat auch mal wieder da um die verwandten zu besuchen. Falls du was zum uebersetzen brauchst, lass mich wissen. H…
  • Here are the pictures of the finished product. It was all eaten today. We had 5 people and everybody got a sandwich. I ended up eating 3, my buddy 3 as well. I ended up saving all the juices and pouring it over the sliced brisket. We end…
  • I do. Most of the time I am able to load the mini with lump and set one of the fire cubes to light it. While the fire is lighting/ spreading, I end up taking a shower so it ends up being ready just in time. I usually grill chicken breasts or steak…
  • Whipstock, where are you located? I am in Reno, NV, so I dont know if it is a regional thing. I will talk to the manager at WalMart and see if they can order it. Thank you for the tip.
  • Whipstock wrote: You can order at walmart online and have shipped to the store. Tried that and it doesn't work. Can't order any charcoal over the walmart site. Let me know if you find a way. I haven't found any Royal Oak near me. They have K…
  • I did a slab of ribs on the mini. I took out the fire ring and put a small fire brick in there. I wrapped the firebrick in aluminum foil and placed the grate on top of it. The wribs were wrapped, in a circle and standing up. I cooked on 275 for a…
  • As a new egg owner here is my take on it. I have a Weber Geneses EP310 and a Weber One Touch Silver. I also just purchased a BGE Mini. I love all three of my grills. :laugh: The Mini is great and is getting used the most right now. It is e…
  • Great looking steaks. B) I am not agreeing with the soy/ Worchestershire sauce. Prime beef usually needs just salt and pepper. Just my opinion.
  • Nice view. Looks like Tahoe.
  • If you are cooking for 1-2 it is great and it is more portable than other eggs, just by being smallest. It is still heavy, because it is about 35lbs. I cooked a good sized ribeye, a porterhouse, 3 small potatoes, cut in half, 2 burgers. All at sepa…

  • Thanks GulfCoast. I might have to try that. Now I have to justify buying a small fridge and leaving it in there. Does a small fridge work? One thing though, how do you go back to eating normal steak? Haha.

  • Thank you for the advice. Ill have to ask the butcher at Costco to give me one of those Cryovac packs. So let me get this, you place the steaks/ whole loin on a rack in a pan and just put it in a fridge?!? If that's the case, how do you know you…
  • Great job! I wish I could find the same meat here. We usually get USDA Prime at Costco but they are cut already. Dry aging is a whole different story. Ill be grilling some USDA Prime fillets tomorrow that I got from costco. Can't wait to see how…
