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

  • Re: BGE Quality

    I sort of have a frontline view of just how many warranty claims we get compared to just how many we sell.  We sell 300+ a year, been in business for 10 years.  We warranty about 15 fireboxes a year, which includes customers who buy from other dealers.  Small percentage IMO
    I think that these numbers are a testament to the quality of the product.

  • Re: Rolling your Egg

    It should come with the nest, but unfortunately it's a separate purchase.
    I don't agree here, most Egg owners do not need a Handler with their Egg nest combo, so why jack up the price for an item they don't need?  
    If you need it, it is available for resonable price IMO.

  • Re: forum problems

    Always a healthy choice to simply take a break from the forum ever so often, after 12 years on this forum I have seen quite a bit.  Every once in a while I to get too wrapped up in things around here, by stepping away many of times... it really does help.  But, to each their own.  I'm gonna go cook something.

  • Re: Having 2nd thoughts.

    I would say you need to stick it out a while or you will simply take a bath on the original cost vs resale.  Overcooking food (drying out) is not the fault of the cooker.  Buy yourself a Thermapen and learn to use it.  My 2¢

  • Re: High Que or Kick Ash Basket . . .

    Both products aid with air flow and cleaning.  I feel the High Que grate gives me easier cleaning as I simply stir ash and drag out bottom vent with ash tool. I don't feel you need both. My 2¢
