Big Green Egg BBQ Guru


The Big Green Egg BBQ Guru is a life saver for overnight cooks. If you have ever done an overnight cook on a pork butt you now the feeling you get at 3 o’clock in the morning, wondering if the temperature of your Big Green Egg is still the same as when you left it, or ever worse if the fire went out.

The Big Green Egg BBQ Guru is a like a mini computer that you hook up to your Big Green Egg to control the temperature of your Egg. This thing is just amazing. It has two probes, one that goes into the food you are preparing, and one that you attach to the grill grate to monitor the temperature of the Big Green Egg. Now the cool part, the BBQ Guru has a small fan the you place on the draft door on the bottom of the Big Green Egg. With the information the BBQ Guru receives from the temperature probe, it then controls the fan to blow air into your Big Green Egg to control the temperature. This thing is so accurate it will hold the Temperature of your Big Green Egg any where from 32*F/0*C to 475*F/246*C with +/- 2* accuracy.

Besides how well the Big Green Egg BBQ Guru works, what impressed me the most about the BBQ Guru is just how well it’s made. The control box is constructed from powder coated machined aluminum and has bright easy to read red scrolling led lights on the display. With most products made for plastic now a days, it’s very refreshing to see a high quality product that is made to last for years to come.

Bottom line is I’m very happy with my Big Green Egg BBQ Guru. It may have been a little pricy, but after using it for the first time I knew it was well worth the money spent. I now do overnight cooks all the time and never lose a bit of sleep.

Big Green Egg Plate Setter

Any time a new Big Green Egg owner asks me what eggcessories they should get I always tell them that if they own a Big Green Egg the first thing you need to buy is the Big Green Egg Plate Setter.

If you don’t own a Big Green Egg Plate Setter let me explain what it does. The Plate Setter is used for indirect cooking on your Big Green Egg. It acts as a barrier between the fire and your food.

The Big Green Egg Plate Setter is sold as an accessory, but it should come with the Big Green Egg. If you want to use your Big Green Egg to it’s full potential you need a Plate Setter. You will use your Plate Setter anytime you are going to slow cook anything or if your going to roast a piece of meat in your Big Green Egg.

Let’s not forget about pizza. The Plate Setter is used in the legs down position when making pizza as to hold your pizza stone. The Plate Setter is used in the same position to bake the most amazing bread on your Big Green Egg.

The bottom line is you need a Plate Setter if you own a Big Green Egg. You will find that it will make your Big Green Egg cooking experience much better, and your food better as well.
