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!

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

    Also what was the temperature of the egg when you woke up?  I think the rule is based on the ambient temp (e.g. the egg temp) not the internal temp.  If the egg was over 140 then you are fine.

    true, although these things aren't exactly rocket science.  
    Or even motorcycle science :glasses: .
  • Re: Noxious Smell from BGE

    I agree that all the starters stink but the smell eventually goes away when they burn completely.  One tip is to make sure they have burned out completely before closing the egg.  If you close the egg and choke of the air I have found they will smolder and not burn and stink like crazy.  

    I prefer other methods of lighting but the starters will work.  
  • Re: How Old Is My Egg?

    I don't know how to tell by the ID.  That's a good question- not sure if they are sequential numbers.  Based on the handle and thermometer all I can tell you is I think it is a pre-2012 egg.  I think they went with Tel-tru thermos in 2012.  

    I suspect the cooking grid is black porcelain coated?
