Friends

National BBQ Month sure was tasty! We hope you got to try just as many new BBQ recipes as we did and some old favorites as well. If not, you can find all our BBQ recipes here and try them out all summer long. One of our favorites was Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise and Ted Reader’s Rum Injected Sweet Potatoes. As the weather’s heating up, use your EGG for a cool treat-Ice Cream Sandwiches! Keep an eye out for some Father’s Day recipes from chefs & their dads, coming soon!

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

  • Re: Transporting a BGE

    Find a friend with a truck. Offer food from our BGE.

    Remove the insides and tie it down. Besides, you need two people to lift it up into the bed of the truck and remove it when you get home. Don't forget to secure the lid so it doesn't bounce. (Moved mine from the store this way a few years ago when I got my Father's Day gift. I've been showing thanks with good food since.)

    What the Foxen?

    Next they'll have a Texas goes dry for a week. No wine or beer? And I thought all the nuts were in California.

  • Re: BGE & Animal Welfare

    I appreciate the topic and the discussion. That's what makes this country great. (If only our politicians could learn to discuss topics and come to common ground for the good of the population not their re-election accounts but I digress.)

    I'm the second generation off the farm on my side of the family and my wife is as well. I sent summers on vacation harvesting crops in the south. I've sent time with my wife's family big farming operations in the north. I can still hear smell that, it's the smell of money from the pig farmer. I've also sent time with the members that work in meat processing plants (chickens and cows).

    It's already been pointed out there are good operations and bad operations. The process starts from the animal being raised and feed through the processing. The only way to solve your concern is farm to table approach. In some of the larger cities, butchers are starting to embrace this approach. That means they buy whole animals. This means that us consumers need to eat more than pork butts, ribs, briskets, etc..

    BGE is a wonderful tool for exploring some of these cuts. I've got a long way to go and would like to see other folks recipes and off normal cuts they are using. (I tried beef tongue recently) So you hunters that do whole animals probably have a running start on this so please share.

    Sorry for the wordiness of this comment but it's a big topic with a lot of options.

  • Re: Moving!! ... Exactly HOW do I move this thing??

    +1 on strapping. Moved mine approx 6 miles in back of the back of the truck up a hill. Note, use packing blankets between the truck and the BGE so the egg doesn't bang on the back window.
