Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

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

    That is a super sweet set up right there!! Assuming you roll the eggs out to cook? Are those lights or vents on the side of the trailer?

    +1 on how the eggs stay tied in for travel

    Looks like you are securing the Eggs with zip tie's from the nest to anchors in the floor. Is that correct?

    No concern about them being top heavy?

    Very sweet rig. Love how the eggs are docked and look like they are ready to pounce. Good luck with the comp season.

    Do you stay in CA, or does your team travel regionally or nationally?

    We compete in the California BBQ Association's points race each year with 135 other teams.   We used to travel to 18-20 a year, now we only do 8-10.   To compete heavy for the state crown you need to do about 15 a year at least.    Hard to get away that much anymore it seems.   It is fun, and I have a good team and that makes it easier on everyone.   We'd like to make it back to the American Royal and Jack Daniels World Championships again, we did both in 2010.
