National BBQ Month sure was tasty! We hope you got to try just as many new BBQ recipes as we did and some old favorites as well. If not, you can find all our BBQ recipes here and try them out all summer long. One of our favorites was Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise and Ted Reader’s Rum Injected Sweet Potatoes. As the weather’s heating up, use your EGG for a cool treat-Ice Cream Sandwiches! Keep an eye out for some Father’s Day recipes from chefs & their dads, coming soon!

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

  • That'll make your titties smaller Craig...
  • Paper rocks. I made my best chucky ever yesterday. Did it at 300-325 range the whole time and wrapped in paper around 165 when I pulled the ribs off. 
  • Reaching in to pull a rack out last weekend. Almost better now.

  • Those ribs are going in some Mac and cheese tomorrow. Got a chucky on finishing just went in paper when the ribs came off. Chucky is going in the beans. 2 more racks of ribs and a meatloaf for tomorrow. Right now sitting by the fire pit about to pla…
  • The snake is what I have seen people doing on the brethren. Basically a ring of charcoal around the outside and light the lump and let it burn around. You need to try to get mostly all the same sized smaller lump so it burns consistent and doesn't g…
  • look at the weber virtual Bullet forum there are many ways to set it up where you can go hours without adding lump. Pretty sure I have seen posts where people go 8 hours in a kettle without adding coals.
  • Pizza looks great but what in the world are you cooking on?

  • Chimney on the weber. Charcoal spread on one side for direct other side no coals for indirect.

  • My parents just sold their house in south Florida and are looking for a place in the villages in Florida. I know you said not in Florida but if I was looking for a place to retire that's where I would be. Believe they said 42 golf courses and all th…
  • Man I just realized I have the crappiest luck ever based off this post. In 5 years I have had just about everything crack including 3 bases. I drive down to the mothership atleast once a year to swap out parts that have cracked over the year.

  • Working from home today. Just got back from Costco with a case of new Belgium variety pack, 3 racks of ribs, 2 chuck roasts and a block of aged cheddar. 
  • My wife loves it. She is vegan and I cook her veggies all the time. I am attempting a vegan Mac and cheese for Memorial Day so she has more than veggies to eat. I have been roasting heads of cauliflower for her and after the first one she said I can…
  • I bought a patio table cover from lowes for like $20 when I had a table. For that price why not cover it?
  • If you want a strong smoky flavor I would suggest going with hickory wood. A lot of woods like oak or any fruit wood will have a much more subtle flavor. The smoke ring is just a reaction you can get smoky flavor without it. Did you add the wood the…
  • Will probably get one for the MM after all the positive reviews. Can't see how the XL needs better airflow though.
  • If you are gonna replace it get the new 3" thermometer for the XL 
  • maybe you could start a thread about butter and microwaved tilapia?

  • I had both. Sold the jr so all my Kamardos matched. Should have sold the MM. The KJ is cheaper, holds more lump, comes with everything you need, and is lighter. The MM carrier is better buts that's it.
  • Never buy a used egg. The resale should literally be like 20% of the retail. They crack all the time. I used to frequent craigslist to find "deals" on used eggs but I since learned and sold all my used ones and the 3 left I bought new. I would guess…

  • Want to do rib Mac n cheese. Probably some baked beans. Meatloaf sounds good. Keeping it simple would like to do the pool Sunday and Monday.
  • Just drill a small hole in it on the side.
  • Hard to tell the screen size but that's 2 single garage door behind it.

  • I love having a TV outside. If its nice out we would rather be out in the garage watching tv than sitting inside on the couch. Plus my garage is my man cave until I get everything done inside and start working out there. We also have a projector out…

  • No the wife paused it cause the baby woke up. Took the pic to post on the what are you doing now thread and didn't even check the tv. Was multiple beers in at this point.
    in OT: Outdoor TV Comment by Lit May 20
  • If you look at my picture on the shelf by the tv next to the beer is the mini receiver from direct tv. Guessing it's like 4"*4"*1"

  • So jealous the weather was finally nice again and we couldn't make it. Hopefully next year. Great pics as always.
  • @MrCookingNurse it's a backwoods fatboy. Christmas present to myself.
