Hop on down to your nearest EGG dealer this week to pick up some Easter EGGcessories! Here are a few that may be useful for Easter, the V-rack, electric charcoal lighter and flexible skewers! Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • You may also want to look at the instructions and turn off the ramp down feature if it's enabled by default.

  • It's really pretty straight forward.  Install the fan adapter and plug the fan into the adapter and then connect it to the controller.  Connect both of your temp probes to the controller and then connect the power as well.  When the unit powers up, …

  • I make mine in a bread machine but it's just as easily done by hand or mixer with the same ingredients... http://bbq.setzler.net/2011/09/15/cast-iron-deep-dish-pizza/
  • I like to preheat my cooler with a couple quarts of boiling water.  I do this about 20 minutes before I take a brisket or butt off the cooker.  When the meat comes off, I double foil it, drain the hot water from the cooler, put the meat in the coole…
  • Have a look on YouTube and search for butterfly or roll cutting of a pork loin.  You cut it and then flatten it out to add your fillings and then roll it back up and tie it off with butcher's twine before cooking... http://bbq.setzler.net/2011/10/1…

  • I love cast iron grates so much that I bought one of the aftermarket ones for my Weber kettle.  It does not contribute to flavor.  It does make beautiful sear marks if you get it good and hot.  In my humble opinion, the appearance of the food is as …
  • Was your pit/oven temp probe laying on the foil covered pizza stone during this cook? I was thinking it was and possibly the reason for the temp difference. Nice video, Thanks for sharing. No.. I just laid it there to monitor the pit temp while it w…
  • Nice video. I grew up in Hickory so you are OK with me. I enjoy reading your posts. Good luck. Just for my info, where did you get that great quote on the large BGE? New River Building Supply in Boone.
  • Here's the video of today's Boston Butt cook on this cooker... BTW- I realize this forum is for BGE owners and enthusiasts and that's why I came here as I was shopping for a BGE.  I'd like to continue to participate here at some level because the…
  • I have two video reviews made, and the third one of a boston butt cook is in progress right now... Char-Griller Kamado Review 1 Char-Griller Kamado Review 2
  • I want to ask an honest question, and not intended to make a point by asking the question. This unit is not ceramic, as I understand it so far.  So, am I correct that the whole concept of ceramic cooking, and the consistent heat that surrounds the f…
  • I'm expecting to have completed my seasoning burn (yesterday - 1 hour at 400+ degrees and then cool down) and my 7lb boston butt cook today (currently 6 hours in) with less than 8lbs of lump.  I don't know how to compare that to what an egg consumes…
  • I want to thank everyone here who gave me advice during my search for a kamado.  I'm sorry that I didn't buy the egg, and I may still buy one in the future.  I'm making up a set of video reviews for this cooker that I'll post on my blog and at the B…
  • I'm aware of all the issues raised here.  I have looked at tons of cheap immitations also and this one is better than the rest.  I agree it's not ceramic and it's not an egg, but testing so far has been all positive.  It doesnt' feel cheap and flims…
  • Never used anything that wasn't labeled as butcher's twine... Bed Bath & Beyond carries it and a spool is pretty cheap.
  • I can't save any money by NOT taking the nest on the package deal price.  I'll probably sell the nest after I get my table built. 
  • i would not buy the nest,. same the bucks and buy some accessories in a while.  sit it on a paver stone until you get the table built. nest is worth about $100  I thought about that as well, but the nest is basically free at this price.  I got a quo…

  • I am going to make a table for it.  The nest is only gonna be used temporarily...
  • I haven't started my 'shopping' process yet but I plan to visit a local dealer tomorrow because I'm getting ready to buy a large egg also.  Maybe I should give my local dealer a call before I visit the showroom...  Based on numbers I have seen I'm h…
  • The only time I ever let myself use lighter fluid is when I'm using a chimney to start my charcoal.  I have, to some extent, gotten away from this practice but I still do it occasionally.  The little Weber lighter cubes work better, but when I'm out…
  • Those look good!  I made beer-braised italian sausages for dinner tonight and even made a video for my blog of the process.  They aren't done on an egg though so I'm sorta weak on the idea of posting that here.  I'll have the egg soon hopefully!
  • Dump some cheap whiskey on the inside walls of the egg.
  • I'm not sure I would call it a flaw.  Most of us burn them off by doing something like running up the temps when the eggs are new, etc.   Personally, I think it is the ONLY thing you probably ever have to concern yourself with other than knocking it…
  • Has anyone seen any posts on the Party Q?  I just ordered one, should arrive by Tuesday. I have read a bit about them.  They look pretty good for the price.  The only comments I have heard about them is to use rechargeable batteries and start your c…
  • Personally I would ramp up the temp a bit until the grate temp is at 250. 
  • I'm gonna be a new egger soon too I hope.  I'm picking up a ton of good info here... glad I found this place :)
  • I'm concerned about it tipping over.  One of my patios is made from 5x6" paving stones and rolling on that could lead to problems if I'm not very careful with it.
  • I layer mine in with the charcoal.  A little on top and a little in the middle and a little on top.
  • How difficult is it to remove the OEM gasket?
