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

  • Re: Do you use a temp controller when smoking overnight?

    digi-Q, pit viper and the SS adapter for my XL and my L Big Green Eggs.


    The reason why I rely on these so much is because it takes the guesswork out of temperature adjusting, and wondering what temp I've got the shoulder or brisket cooking at.  and the best part about it is the Ron Popeil factor, you just Set it and Forget it.   the setup helps maintain precise temperature control over a long period of time.  I usually make brisket for 23 hours so the controller is crucial.   once you start using it, you'll never go back.

  • Re: Mini Max

    No matter the wait, it'll be worth it.  I am a loyal customer for life of BGE. I don't think they'd be playing games with their customer base.  And, as I've posted here before, this is like a 10 year old kid waiting for the latest video game at Christmas, or  a new bike.  But, when I got a new bike as a kid in Wisconsin, I couldn't ride it anyway because of the weather.  Weather never stops BGE usage!  Now that I live in AZ, the BGE can be used all year.

     

    I've got a standing order for the first two MiniMaxes that are delivered to my local bbq place.


    Let's hope Nov 1, on or before is the delivery date.

  • Re: Father's Day- went and looked at XXL and came home to make NY Strip Steaks

    Choice Strips at Costco are the best deal around. I've never had a bad one- and they've been enhanced since I learned to cook on the BGE with the cast iron grid.
