It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

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

  • It looks great and the salad looks awesome as well.  I wouldn't have thought to pair corn and watermelon but it looks great. 
  • There are probably better smokers out there than the kettle, but for a good versatile cooker at a good price I think that would be a good choice.  It might take a little more baby sitting than something like a WSM...but the WSM aren't that cheap any…
  • I happened to notice they were $254 on Amazon today in US (with Prime).  Not sure if that helps our Canadian brethren.

  • Good tip @tarheelmatt  In chrome, find the image you want, right click, copy image.  Then just come here where you are typing and right click-->paste (or ctrl+v). 
  • I don't have a ton of experience but every high rise condo I have stayed in did not allow grills of any kind on the balcony.  Most places will have grills in the common area you can use.  They are usually gassers, but I just got back from vacation a…
  • That looks like a great accessory at a great price.  Will the top rack fit with the plate setter in?  It seems like it might be a little tall.  
  • Good luck- I'm sure it will be outstanding.  FYI the term "Prime Rib" was coined before the USDA grading system, so it doesn't have anything to do with the grade.  So, a choice grade prime rib is quite common.  I decided to just call it a rib roast …
  • That's great man.  It sounds like you have a great butcher.  I searched around and I think this is basically like the money muscle off the butt.  So, it will be like the very best bites of pulled pork.  You are in for some good eats! 
  • Good deal!  Did your butcher have to order it or was he able to cut it off of a shoulder?  (If that is where it comes from...I'm not sure). 
  • That table is a work of art...congrats and welcome!
  • Get the popcorn and prepare to watch the raccoon gifs. 
  • You can't beat a perfect looking grilled cheese!  I think you are holding out on us though...I spot some turkey or something in there.  I like the drip tray on the griddle. 
  • It is a shame they don't build in some hooks.  Could you drill some holes in lip of the metal counter?  If you did that you could just add some S hooks.  If you don't want to drill you could try the 3M commander stick on hooks.  They have some tha…
  • If you paste an image URL to a GIF it will work, but if you upload the GIF it will not work.  Sorry @Eggcelsior if I spoiled your fun. 
  • I think a tenderloin would have a better chance than a loin of pulling.  I agree with others I would just cook it like a roast or cut it into thick chops if you can.  I got a rack once that still had the chine bone attached all around and I couldn't…
  • Man that is beautiful.  
  • Sounds great!  I love a pulled beef sammich.  
  • paqman said: @SmokeyPitt the fries in my pics were double fried in duck fat.  Duck fat is awesome for making fries.  Awesome.  If I ever try to make at home I am getting some duck fat.

  • I have seen one here: @20stone cooked one recently:
  • I suspect that many places double-fry the french fries.  They have that all over brown color like in @paqman 's pic.
  • I have been to the Montreal area a few times and I love poutine.  Yours looks great! 
  • Thatgrimguy said: SmokeyPitt said: I just got back from vacation and I had it under the cover for about 8 days.  I had some rust when I took the cover off.  I used several cans in a row to make a "peak" but I suspect some water still g…
  • It looks great from here.  I understand what you mean about the hype...sometimes it is hard to live up to.  I usually shoot to finish mine right around 130 after rest as well.  The color looks right to me for a 130 finish.   YetiBob said: No…
  • They look great.  I also do them both ways.  If I have the time to stand around the egg and flip them I go direct.  If I am doing other things and need to leave them unattended I go indirect.  
  • lousubcap said: "Thanks for the advise." That's it...surely there has got to be more info regarding your temp/thermo issue! lol...Lou is right...we need closure!  Did the fire go out?
