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

mastermind behind the new/upgraded forum?

    You do realize that is what this forum does right??? It markets the product to other users and potential customers...a large portion of sales comes from this forum... :) ;) and yes it is about marketing...

    hey they have a business to run. It may be our hobby and passion,it is their company that many families and investers depend on to provde a paycheck.

    The owners have to have a certain return on investment and growth in the company to justify the purchase of the company.

    Bookings and sales must increase for this to happen. In this information driven, immediate knowledge world, companies must either change or go away.

    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different outcome.


    The only way to grow at a faster rate is to change.

    Agreed. I just hope it is not run "into the ground" as a lot of businesses are when they are transferred to others(not original owners) that only have a view of the "bottom line". ;) No harm or foul here,just sayin.I love my egg and will support them anyway I can.To a point. :)

    Normal behavior is resistance to change. If change isn't made regularly business goes by the way of Border's, Blockbuster, and 8 track tapes. I really don't think bottled water will catch on!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That article popped up a few days ago, when I was playing around with Google+. Since it was already several days old at the time, I figured someone had already posted it here.

    Pretty enlightening, no?
