Are WE Foodies?

And is that bad? 

This big heavy guy at work gets accused of being a 'Foodie'. And he is. He's got an Egg, a Weber, a gasser, and just custom ordered some sort of smoker that looks like a refrigerator. He tells me details of BBQing that he learned from his family growing up in N.C. that I never dreamed. And he's always dropping by with pics on his phone or samples of the weekend cook.

So I've noticed that my weekends in the year and half since I've had my Egg are often centered around the Egg and it's all about what we're going to cook today. Based on all that I think I'm now a 'Foodie' and all I can say is at least I'm an Egg-Foodie!

    If you have read a thread about sous vide, then you are a foodie.

    I think foodies are people who go and try foods but have no idea how to prepare them.

    We are Egg Junkies, but I'll go with @Henapple and agree with Chefs

    ok I had to look up the definition of that and can say YES I am a foodie, without a doubt.

    If you're excited by housemade charcuterie, then you're probably a foodie.

    If you spend more than a minute reading the text on a bag of charcoal, then you just might be a foodie.

    If the newest issue of Cook's Illustrated, and the newest issue of Playboy, both arrive on April 17th and, on April 19th, the CI is dogeared and tomato-stained and the Playboy hasn't been opened yet, you're probably a Foodie.

    If you were gay and receiving Playboy, you either are way too concerned about what your mailman thinks about you, or you read the thought provoking in-depth articles in Playboy.

    Call me whatever you want! I love my egg and I do take a little crap from people saying that's the only thing I know how to cook on. I think that's true however!
