We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

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

  • Looks awesome.  Definitely want to try that cauliflower rice.
  • Can you pre-cook them on the egg and simply reheat on the gasser?
  • Always glad to see more eggheads from up here in the Pac NW.  Welcome.
  • Had a sale on select packers at a restaurant supply store a couple weeks ago for $2.99/lb, they're usually around $3.60/lb.  Normal grocery store had small choice packers for $7.99/lb.
  • I have been big on Michter's Rye lately.  It took me damn near 4 years to find it outside KY, but we have it here now.  Also keep Four Roses, Bulleit, Blanton's, and sometimes Woodford around for variety.  And I'm a fan on Angel's Envy.  Been trying…
  • I just picked up a Joe Jr. a couple weeks ago at a Costco Roadshow.  Check to see if ones coming near you - they go for $400 bucks there.  I've done pastrami and pizzas and it kicked ass.  I'll be doing a pork butt and more pizzas camping this weeke…
  • I have a large, mini-sized, and just picked up a KJ Jr.  For me the mini was just a little bit on the small sized, so we got the KJ Jr. which comes in at around the same size as a small/minimax.  I gotta say I am really impressed with the Jr.  I don…
  • Those of us in the nether regions don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Thanks @jaydub58 for the heads up. I paid a bit more a few weeks ago for some bags. When @stlcharcoal needs to move some product up in Oregon, I can guarantee at least two heavy…
  • Well balls. The best I can find around here is choice on sale at $3.10 a pound. 
  • aukerns08 said: Just FYI if you do go with the Kamado Joe from Costco it will have the full Joe Lifetime Warranty, per an employee of Kamado Joe.  They have a forum as well that employees get on, and there's a Q&A post specifically about …
  • Jeepster47 said: @BizGreenEgg ... with an old broken plate setter and a cutoff wheel you might be able to make a customized oval stone that fits down below the top of the fire ring on the spider. Absolutely.  This forum is never short on …
  • The biggest benefit to the spider and stone is that you can place your indirect piece lower than the plate setter, thus you are able to have a grid of food at the normal level for cooking.  This gives you a lot more room to do multi-level cooking.  …
  • I'd also recommend skipping the plate setter and looking at an AR or Woo from Ceramic Grill Store.

  • The only places I would even slightly consider "places to avoid at night" would be pretty far east - like SE Portland close to the airport and Gresham, and possibly far NE.  Everywhere you are going to be is very safe.  Hipsters can't pack heat in t…
  • Awesome to hear you are heading to PDX and staying at Kennedy School.  I can guarantee you're going to have a good time.  If you're not opposed to a short 10-15 min drive or cab ride, the two places I would put high on the list for an amazing dinner…
  • UncleFred said: BizGreenEgg said: ...You're staying downtown, which I tend to steer clear of - it's just a little too D baggy for me; with the exception of Le Pigeon, Clyde Common, and Little Bird, which are right down there.  East si…
  • Here's some recommendations I made in the past for PDX: If you're looking for larger craft breweries in PDX, then there's Widmer and Bridgeport, which are some of the older guys in Oregon.  I prefer some of the smaller guys on the East side - Migra…
  • Eggcelsior said: @nolaegghead I bet it's the warm water vs. cold water argument. Based on everything I've read and now personally experienced, cold water oysters will have a stronger flavor than warm. Obviously, taste is learned, as you said.…
  • Oregon - Come for the fishing, stay for the strip clubs.
  • YEMTrey said: I was just at the Hofbrau Haus this past Friday night.  Only way to drink freshly brewed German beer.  That place is heaven on earth.  And the food is outstanding as well.If anybody is travelling to or through Cincinnati it's a …
  • Easiest way is with an A-Maze-N Pellet smoker. http://www.amazenproducts.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=AMNPS5X8 Super easy to use and it would definitely be done for Christmas.  Most smoke the cheese for 2-4 hours and then let it mellow in a va…
  • Gouda, Cheddar, Dubliner.  I like alder and apple.
  • I'll bite and post pics of my two handsome guys anytime.ScotchAnd Drake
  • Pureed parsnips, balsamic reduction, grilled asparagus?
  • I've been trying to make watching the Star Wars Christmas Special a tradition, but none of my family can sit through the whole thing.
  • That looks pretty great.  Love to try unique dishes.
  • Deschutes is in Bend; they only have a tasting room in Portland.  If you're looking for larger craft breweries in PDX, then there's Widmer and Bridgeport, which are some of the older guys in Oregon.  I prefer some of the smaller guys on the East sid…
  • Thanks @mickey . It's just a filet of cod. My plating pictures could use a little work but I was hungry.
  • @thegooddocta where did you have the 3d printing done?  I have a buddy that built one of these and he's debating between a printed case or having one CNC'd from a friend of ours.
  • thegooddocta said: Looks great! Don't think I'd eat oysters from the Golden Arches even if offered though! :] I would definitely agree with that.  I think the only kind you'd get there would be of the throat variety and very undesirable.
