It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

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

  • Really pumped about our first egg fest. Seems like I need to bring chairs, a rolling cooler, and an empty belly. Anything else? @Vidalia - where can I find info on the classes offered? Are they randomly held or on a schedule?
  • We're big fans of Bobby Flay's rub (posted above) on ribeyes and strips. I personally like it better than the Dizzy Pig, but that's just me.
  • I found mine at McMaster Carr. You'll pay a little more, but they're stainless and IMO look great. SS screws were included. SKU #11855a16
