Big "O" Cookouts

Big "O" Cookouts - The Orion Cooker


The Orion Cooker community often gets together for friendly cookouts, which we call the Big "O" Cookouts.

You can find information about upcoming Big "O" Cookouts, or find people in your area who would like to participate in a Big “O” Cookout on our forum.

It's not uncommon for there to be a gathering of 10 to 20 Orion Cookers at a cookout—they share recipes and see how others are using their Orion Cookers.

Let us know if you plan to host a Big "O" Cookout by filling out the form below.

We can't attend all of the cookouts, but we may be able to send you some free stuff if you promise to send us your photos and videos to share in our photo gallery.
