Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

The Georgia Mountain Eggfest 2013 is.....

as they say, "in the books". I continue to be humbled by the eggers and fans that come here to Hiawassee, GA to participate in this fest. Many of the long distance cooks that were here last year made the trek again this time.....and, that just blows my mind! The final numbers are in and we had 1400-1500 fans and enthusiasts come through the gates and the dealer sold 95 eggs, and could have sold 12-15 more had they not completely depleted their stock. We lucked out on the weather. It started out with rain and by the time the tasters arrived the skies parted and fair weather was in abundance. 
Here are some pics :

    This fest "ALWAYS" seems to one of the best in the country and for years you seem to be one of the key organizers.  Congrats to you for another job "well done".  I wish i lived closer because i would attend this one for sure!

    We had a great time even though we got there a little later than we planned. Getting ready to setup my second addition, an XL that was one of the 95 sold

    My family and I had a great time. It was lots of fun trying all the food everyone was working so hard to prepare and meeting folks from the forum.

    Thanks to Egret organizing and all the cooks for the great food!

    We had a great time; weather held up great. Our kids had a great time too. Took home a mini, and it looks like you got me in that first picture with my back to the camera and a white hat on. I want to cook next year!

    I live only about 2hrs away in (Woodstock) and have missed this fest the last 2yrs since I got my Eggs. I have a 21 month old baby but hope to be there very soon. Hopefully next year.

  • For those of you who live anywhere remotely close to Hiawassee, this is an event you should not miss.  Even if you don't cook, your family will enjoy going and you will be inspired by what you see some amazing cooks doing on the Egg.  Plus, if you are thinking about buying an Egg--you won't get a better price-- plus there are even demo classes on Egging 101, breadmaking, etc.  You can't go wrong by attending this event in 2014--so be there!  I persuaded my brother in law to finally order an Egg, I went and was able to cook on his egg, and then load it up and delivered it after the fest.
