Get ready to turn up the heat as we dive into August. While there are only a few weeks left to perfect those tailgate recipes, summer isn’t over yet! Two things we’ll be making this month are Chile Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops and Bell Pepper Kabobs. Then, relax after a cookout with a cool dessert cooked on your EGG - Ice Cream Sandwiches! You can mix and match your favorite cookie flavors with ice cream flavors. Simple, yet delicious!

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

    Stick the thermapen in and get a swallow of adult refreshment and then read the temp....how fast does it really have to be.....
    At least as fast as it's far cheaper counterpart!  

    Totally on board with the adult beverage though.
  • Thermapen vs. Thermopop

    Hi guys, I did an AB comparison between the Thermapen and Thermopop and was surprised at the performance difference.   It seemed like the thermopop was faster.

    My Thermapen has always seemed to take longer than the advertised 3 seconds.  Is my Thermapen defective or is it just marketing hype.  Do you see similar performance?  Perhaps my test is flawed, but I don't think so.




  • Re: How Do You Sharpen Your Knives?

    Arkansas stone and a felt wheel for my bench grinder.   Everyone should learn how to sharpen their own tools.   If I find one of my blades or chisels not up to snuff I can have it sharp enough to shave with in moments.   Sure beats making a trip to town to get someone else to do it for me.

    The Tormek would be nice, but for less that $60 I bet you could get it just as sharp with my setup.
  • OT: Campfire Caveman Sammiches (w/ pics)

    Had a great fishing trip with my brother and buddies on the Miramichi River here in New Brunswick, Canada.   We picked up a AAA (Choice) Rib roast that I carved up into steaks which lived on for a couple of meals.  We had one left on the morning before we left so I caveman'd it and it turned out great for quality breakfast sandwiches.

    A great way to cap off a great session with friends, family, fishing and food!

  • Re: Mosquitoes are terrible this summer

    I wouldn't be too inclined to spray chemicals that a 3-month old might get exposed to (or yourself!)

    I have a 5 gallon metal bucket that I light a smudge in, which basically gives me a smoldering portable campfire.  Just put it downwind of where your family is hanging out and you will greatly reduce the flying varmints.
