Spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with your EGG? Virginia Willis’ three course menu is perfect for a date night! February is also National Chocolate Lover’s Month, so don’t feel guilty if you’ve been cooking a little more dessert than usual on your EGG. If you’re looking for something a little more savory than chocolate, try some Roasted Chicken Flatbread or Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard.

  • Remove the innards (fire ring, bowl, etc) and use a pot-lifter. Makes moving eggs much easier.

  • I have them for my bge. Love them. Use them for steaks, burgers, and fajitas mostly. As mentioned before, does most of the same cast iron does, but is lighter and wont rust.
  • Most are raised direct (chicken and sausage mostly) but also throw in indirects (wings, ribs) from time to time.
  • Wicked Good locally stocked at an Ace Hardware store or Ozark Oak stocked by my egg dealer.  Both priced about the same per pound (1 20 lb Wicked good bag = 2 10 lb Ozark Oak bags).
  • On Super Bowl Sunday I did wings indirect at 400 for about 40 minutes (there was a temp spike once around 450 for awhile). I used an adjustable rig and extender, so the wings were pretty high up in the dome.  I did also use a bit of cornstarch to ma…
  • When I bought my egg, I used the free bag of Ozark Oak until it was done. I then purchased a bag of Wicked Good.  It is good, it tends to last longer and retain heat well.  It also did come with some huge chunks, but also a bunch of "nuggets".  The …
  • I did a cook a couple of weeks ago where I was primarily cooking drumsticks and sausage raised direct.  Had some family from Mexico drop by and they brought some "NY strips" from Mexico (they were like a giftbox given to them from their workplace or…
  • I used a potlifter with my father. My egg was assembled by the dealer but I had to drop in my table myself. I took all the insides out (firebox,firering, firegrate, grid, etc). I used the potlifter to carry the egg from the car to my patio near the …

  • I used Swamp Venom in one of the racks of baby back ribs I made today (the other used Dizzy Dust). Taste was incredible.  I only bought the SV as a sample size, so needless today I will be ordering a shaker soon.
  • How did you cook it?  Raised or normal level? What dome temp?  I haven't done a burger yet on my egg and feeling out the consensus.
  • Gorgeous!  I also did some legs today (simple teriyaki/soy sauce marinade) raised direct 420.  Took about the same time to finish.  Rave reviews from the family.  Might need to get one of those leg racks to efficiently organize and even cook on the …
  • I actually bought my table from JS Designs before I bought my large egg. I new I wanted a table before I got it, and didn't have much tools to do it with. So I checked JS Designs and liked what I saw. It came well packed in separate boxes and was ea…
  • 1. The first part of my first cook on my large egg had chicken drumsticks, not brined. Cooked it raised direct around 400 but got a bit impatient and got it to about 450.  Very juicy and flavorful and whatever skin the drumsticks had came nice and c…
  • With what and how are you lighting it with?  On my first cook, it took about 30 or so minutes to get my egg lit and stabilized at 400. Of course I was real conservative the way I reached it.  I used 2 firestarter blocks lit in the egg with dome open…
  • I bought mine just after i bought my egg, and used it on my first cook.  When I was lurking on these forums, I saw a lot of posts and recipes as "cooked raised direct" so I'm planning on using the majority of the time for that purpose.  I also like …
