We hope you had a hoppy Easter and are ready to spring into warm weather cooking mode! There’s nothing better than spending time outdoors with the sweet aroma of fresh cooked Ribs. Baseball season is also underway, so it's the perfect time to try out some chicken wing variations! We have Jamaican Jerk, Lemon Pepper, Fired-Up Wings and even a Whiskey Onion and Chicken Steak if wings aren't your thing. Bon appetit!



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: Need desperate help lighting the egg

    I use 91% alcohol but in a chimney with a couple of pages from the newspaper. I pour the 91% from the top and wait about 15 to 20 seconds before hitting it with a lighter. The chimney is sitting on the lump in the BGE.  I then wait for the top lump in the chimney to turn white, that' s around 10 minutes and pour the hot coals on the other lump, I use the ash tool to turn the chimney upside down.
