  • I just didn't know if it was better to put thin coat of oil or something on it to help seal the pores or something. I just hated to start using it and something go wrong and find out after the fact that I should have done this instead of that and th…
  • I just got an egg and an xl at that. I have always had a pretty big gas grill (larger than most anyway) and I have Bradley smoker which has been great. I always cook for 2 to 3 days worth at a time. I like leftovers I guess. I have cooked 4 meals…
  • I am just guessing here but don't you have to use water in a pressure cooker? I was always under the impression the cooking meat in water has the tendency to remove flavor from the meat. I know from past experiance you can get the same effect as fa…
  • I just put my new xl egg together and all went perfect. I'm not sure if instructions are different for the different size eggs but I know with the xl egg the instructions called for at least 1 inch from top of gasket to band edge. It also said it is…

  • You definately have a gift that I don't have
  • FTC Foil, towel, Cooler. On my old smoker I would cook chicken, ribs, or anything else and I would wrap food with foil, then a towel, then put in a preheated cooler. 3 OR 4 hours later all was just as hot as ever and tender and moist as ever
  • Steak and beef ribs here. Nothing special but all was fantastic. Never have I cooked on a grill that was so easy and so good. For many years I have seen the egg at the local propane gas company every time I refilled my tanks . When I looked at pri…

  • I just bought an xl egg. I don't know how long they have been out, but I do know one way of knowing if it is the new design is to check the fire box. If it has joint in it it should be the new dome also. I got that info from green egg head Quarter…

  • How do you know if you are buying new or old style ex egg
  • thanks for the fast reply The biggest reason for looking at extra large was that even though we don't entertain large parties I do like to fill the grill up for left overers and to vacume seal and freeze some for another day My thinking I guess that…
