Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

still having a blast in chicago ....today we went up the sears tower (i still cant' bring myself to call it by its new name the "willis" tower) ... this summer they opened up 'the ledge' . ..3 plexi-glass 'boxes' up on 103rd floor sky deck that stick 4 feet outside the deck. ..plexi glass on all sides including the floor.. ..its like you are stepping out into space 1,353 feet above wacker drive!!!. ...it was just unbelievable. . .catherine, sam and i did it (sydney did not) ....i hope the pics do it justice. ..

here is a pic looking up at the sears tower from street level. .. .
