  • One of the big thrills I was looking forward to when I got my first BGE (an XL) was getting to make pizza on it. I had done a few on a friend's large BGE which we cranked to about 800 and turned out amazing. However I've had little luck in reproduci…
  • Got the nest today, just like Bruce promised and just in time for the Fourth! Looks like this was a snafu on the distribution end after all. I really hope they follow up with the situation in the Bay Area and BBQ Galore.
  • Good news all, Bruce Bohannon from BGE has just emailed me to personally assure that I will get my nest delivered directly from HQ. Props to him on that. I'll report back once everything is set up and I've started using the new Egg. Thanks for all…

  • I've owned a XL for 3 years now but am considering getting an additional medium to use for the more typical 2 person meal. Firing up an XL for a couple of steaks or fish fillets seems to be overkill. I guess I would use the medium as a sort of hibac…
  • Hey Max, Thanks for the tip on the za'atar. Did you marinate the lamb with it for any particular amount of time, like overnight? Or did you rub it on just prior to putting it on the heat? TIA.
