Grilling can be harmful
Yes, and so can crossing the street, but we don't stop doing it, do we?

Grabbing the 400 degree grill lid by mistake is harmful too.
My new big green egg can get up to 750+ degrees. Found out real quick to keep my arm moving when flipping things at that temperature .

Here's a dumb question, but what brand is the Big Green Egg? I know it's a really good grill but in all the pics I've seen posted here, I've never seen a name. Thanks, Terry

The Big Green Egg is the brand. It’s a grill based on an oriental ceramic cooker design. The company was started by Ed Fisher in Atlanta, Georgia. The BGE is probably one of the most amazing grills/smokers on the planet.....and man is it expensive!

One day....yeah, maybe one day.........

Keltin nailed it on the head!!!

I only could affored to by a used one, I got a steal. I gt the large model, the cypress table, and teh cover. Normally that is around $12000.00 and up. Mine was used twice, got it for $350.00.

I felt guilty .

Here is a link of it in use from my first smoke with it a month or so ago.

http://67.59.143.91/images/big-green-egg-smoker/

I use it around two times a week to grill with. I have had it around 1000 degrees. I cooked an extra thick cut porterhouse last night in....6 minutes.

Take care,

Brian

gee whiz, you could use an Egg for foundry work almost!
Let's melt some metal while we vaporize our steak, LOLOL!

I want one. With lots of bells and whistles.

GREAT deal, Brian!

Thanks Keltin. I guess I won't be picking one up this week. And Brian, you win Bargain Hunter of the Year! How cool.

Yeah they are nice, inexpensive also.

They are called bear claws. They normally run around $10 US. However online shipping was killing me so I picked up a set at a BBQ competition I was judging at last year.

Absolutely love them.

Take care,

Brian

That's the first thing that grabbed my attention too as I browsed the pics

OK, maybe not the first, that cooker is pretty darn nice!
