Is your Big Green Egg still cooking even though it’s cold out? We hope so! We love the opportunity to cook heartier meals on the EGG during the winter. Some recipes you definitely want to try are Double Smoked Potatoes, BBQ Chicken Soup, Monte Cristo Sandwich and Breakfast Quiche. These are sure to keep your stomach warm & full! We can’t wait to see what winter-inspired dishes you cook!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the History of the EGG Museum and the Culinary Center too!  3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340.

  • Pretty sure they age all that at my store (Lakeway) I knew they had to be farming some of that stuff out. The case is huge. Way too big for one store.

  • I will also note that this has a rubber seal that is air and water tight when latched. Works great for FTC. Mine has never had ice in it but I sure use it a lot
  • Just an FYI- they replaced it today no questions asked even though the jar is a year out of warranty.  They did say something odd which causes me to believe there is something to issue with the seal where the blades are. This thread is the first pl…
  • YukonRon said: Check them out at Academy. Over all 3 out of 5 stars, due to poor ice retention. good cooler, not great. Likely worth the cost for a dry box. I have one- it's definitely not a cooler. Especially not like an Engle cooler. It'…
  •  "BGE brand lump" stop using that. 
  • HeavyG said: eggo said: Maybe I am being too anal about keeping them separated. Thought better circulation if kept apart. One could say that allowing for more circulation is "better" but heat is going to spread even in areas with le…
  • I haven't used anything but rockwood for the past 2 years. I use 100lbs a month most months. I can cook a brisket for 20 hrs on half a firebox load or less and it's about the same with any lump I've ever used. I use it for low and slow, hot and fast…
  • Take the batteries out and reboot it. Make sure your probes are pushed in all the way. I bet it's fine. 
  • your dome is right too, it's just reading something else
  • Your dome thermo Is touching your meat. Your maverick is right.

  • blasting said: It sure wouldn't be fun to be HRC right now.  I hope she's a music fan, because the hits just keep on coming. the movie is about what happened on the ground and does not mention her or politics in any way. It was written …
  • saluki2007 said: Jesus, how many people are going to die this week. Think I will mandoline some carrots just to push my luck
  • blasting said: Davec433 said: Yeah in talking about the mixing jar. We have the same exact same blender. What almost turned me buying it was the r views on the seal within the jar as well as the gear. But you don't see vitamixs in rest…
  • odie91 said: Davec433 said: It would be nice if they did since those mixers are 100-120. Blendtec?  No way.  Maybe a Ninja. Blendtec and Vitamixes cost way more..... or maybe I got ripped off He may have been talking about …
  • Canugghead said: Just wondering perhaps extreme temperature differential may have caused it? Did you store the jar in the freezer or was the frozen fruits left in the jar for an extended time, thereby chilling the jar thoroughly, and then the…
  • gdenby said: Won't show that to my wife. She griped about me buying a pressure cooker 'cause she had seen the old ones blow up. Now I've got a Blendtec. At least she already leaves the room to avoid the noise when I use it.. I would buy a…
  • Canugghead said: Scary, glad no one was injured. Some juice places have each Vitamix enclosed in clear housing (like how noisy printers were enclosed in the early days), now I realise may be it's purpose could be more than just for sound insu…

  • Carolina Q said: The Cen-Tex Smoker said: Oh yeah, and my Thermapen crapped out today too.  Well, that's three. You should be good now. But I'd still avoid Chipotle for a while. Try new batteries, BTW. Mine just died too and that…
  • JohnInCarolina said: I'm just surprised this wasn't titled  "Why you should never make smoothies. Ever." Missed opportunity there bro. tru dat
  • @The Cen-Tex Smoker good to know Blendtec is replacing it for free. That is TBD. I have a call in but have not spoken to them yet. Oh yeah, and my Thermapen crapped out today too. #firstworldproblems
  • SciAggie said: My friend you are living under a dark cloud. You could buy take out for a day or two but I'm afraid it might be tainted with some dreaded bacteria. I won't be risking Chipotle this week.
  • Eggcelsior said: Good news is they'll replace it no problem. Sorry about the blendtec exorcism. Hope so. I have a call in. 
  • logchief said: Crap, did something break off the blade, I can't imagine that happening.  I'll have to be careful with our Blendtec.  Maybe you ought to go to bed and stay there for a while Nope. The fruit was semi-frozen but nothing I have…
