Mario Batali has a Big Green Egg!

edited 10:11PM in EggHead Forum
In today's NYT article about Mario's summer home in Michigan, here's the reference:[p]Mr. Batali's outdoor pizza oven was installed their second summer in the house (it was shipped from Italy) and soon after, an outdoor kitchen was added, complete with a Big Green Egg, a large oval ceramic smoker in which Mr. Batali makes, among other dishes, paella. "Since I can't cook it over a fire of vine clippings like they do in Spain, I bought this," he said.

    Gretl Collins,
    sounds like the reporter has something screwy since the words "Big Green Egg" and "oval" don't belong in the same sentence.

    And oh yes...also a 17" BlackStone gas fired griddle!

    I'm guessing it's an XL which is sort of oval, isn't it?

  • Isn't an egg just about the definition of "oval"?

    Gretl Collins, Here is the article

  • Sounds like he needs to try his Thanksgiving turkey a la Max instead of in the pizza oven.

    I can't speak for all of them but my XL is not oval.[p]Mike
