  • I have 3 of these.  Two have the cooking grid and one has the chimney.  They are a blast to cook on.  I gave several as Christmas gifts about three years ago when they were still available from BGE.
  • x2. I'm definitely in.
  • Success!!! You can see from the pic, I'm in need of the grid extender. The entire meal was a success. This is the second time I've done a Brisket. The first was from my old side fire box smoker I gave away in anticipation of getting the BGE. Food …
  • Columbia....
  • I have a kitchen full of LC but opt for the Lodge for grill and outdoor cooking. It's much more forgiving in the clean up if for no other reason.
  • Skiddy, you may be correct. I've never cooked a whole chicken like this. I may have split it from the wrong side. I'll try the other next time. It was delicious. Nothing left but a few bones.
  • I've got my first cook on now. The Spatchcock. Egg's been here a week waiting for me to get home. Looks good so far.
  • Everything tastes like chicken in those places.
  • In a conversation with a coworker that I convinced to buy a BGE, he decided he'd heard enough about the BGE. He bet me I couldn't accomplish a task in two weeks or he'd buy me the egg. I had it done in a week. After about two years he manned up and …
  • It is obvious , from the few posts received on this topic, that the majority of BGE dealers just don't care. Maybe BGE needs to regroup with another strategy to market their products. Maybe "company owned" stores in regional malls or markets. The…
  • True Bente, about the heat. But it's still cool at night, and we all love to play with fire. Right? And the onions. Vidalia? My favorite. My neighbor is taking orders for 10# bags for a fundraiser. Can't wait to get mine.
  • Great story and point taken, Bente. I am sold on the product. It's just hard to get around here with dealers that don't stock the product. So, off to GA I will go. I have a fishing trip lined up there in June, so I may have to wait until then. …
  • I am near Nashville. I have been by the dealer in Murfreesboro a few months ago. Anderson's. They are VERY nice people. I had them order some non-egg items for me. They even had it shipped directly to me. They just don't stock much BGE stuff and…
  • I am in TN. I will be calling BGE on Monday to see if I can purchase directly from them. I will be glad to make the drive to get what I want and what I am paying for. THANKS!
  • They had actually sold one. The "grill expert" said the one they sold was in the box so he didn't know if it was defective as was the one left on display. I am more than disappointed that I didn't get to purchase the chiminea. I checked with anot…
  • Maybe I should make the four hour drive to GA and do my shopping. Can you actually purchase all BGE items at the Mothership?
  • AGREED!!! I was really looking forward to having the chiminea on my patio tonite. I was blown away that their "grill expert" did not know the features of the product or care to get me what I wanted. I even offered to pay in advance if he would or…
  • Signed up for two years this afternoon. Can't wait to see the Premier Issue.
  • How many issues have been published? How many pages per issue? I have been looking for weeks for a BBQ magazine and can't find one. There was one out months ago in TN that has disappeared from the shelves.
  • Looks similar to a favorite of mine-a pupusa. The national dish of El Salvador. A thick corn tortilla stuffed with any combination of cheese, beans, and meat (my fav-beans, cheese, shrimp). Cooked on a flat grill. Quick, easy, and cheap but grea…
