It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Clay Q

Greetings,  Cooking on four eggs keeps me busy for now and I have learned a lot about Temperature, Time and Tenderness since I got started egging back in 2004.   There's a lot more for me to learn and along the way I like to share what I'm cookin from the backyard.

  • Re: I just got one as well-XL Egg Table

    Hi Paul all the way from Merry England!
    Congrats on getting the XLarge Egg and the new table, it looks terrific. :cheer:

    I'm thinking split firebricks under your egg. They are 1.250" thick by 9" by 4.5" and can be purchased at a stove and fireplace store. There is a very good chance the granite will crack from heat stress without some kind of spacer installed. The granite is beautiful but unfortunately is not crack(heat stress) resistant like a firebrick or cinder block.

    Raising the egg by 1.250" might clear the back hinge of the table top, otherwise make a cutout to fit. White oak is an excellent choice for a table and will provide many years of service. I'd like to recommend that you place pads at the feet to keep the leg ends up off the deck and clear of moisture. Water is the enemy of wood. To keep your table and egg looking it's best I will also suggest a cover that fits over to protect from sun, rain and ...heaven forbid...snow, which you do get on occasion. :lol:
    Again, Congrats with you new table and egg, have fun and show us what your cookin (and drinkin) over at the EggHead forum.

  • Re: Set up for high heat pizza baking

    I go high in the dome for pizza, that's where the heat is for the toppings to brown up.
    To do that I have stacked two fire rings in my Baker Egg with a modified plate setter and a small plate setter on top.  To buffer heat I can place a modified pizza stone between the two when the top plate setter starts to get overheated as when doing multiple pizzas.  I bake pizza between 600-650 degrees and my pizza is good.  In the pic's is New York Style.
