Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Get ready to turn up the heat as we dive into August. While there are only a few weeks left to perfect those tailgate recipes, summer isn’t over yet! Two things we’ll be making this month are Chile Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops and Bell Pepper Kabobs. Then, relax after a cookout with a cool dessert cooked on your EGG - Ice Cream Sandwiches! You can mix and match your favorite cookie flavors with ice cream flavors. Simple, yet delicious!

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

Just Curious.....What is the significance of, or why did you choose the "handle" that you have?

    My older sister used to call me Wooty when I was a baby.  I asked her about it awhile back myself, wondering where she got it from.  She can't remember.  I stuck the "Lil" in front of it since she stopped calling me that after the toddler years.

    'stike' is the root of my family name.  from the anglo-saxon (see Ælfric's anglo saxon grammar, 1st C.) 'steke', where we get our english words 'steak' (meaning: meat on a stick), 'stake', 'stick', 'stuck', 'stitch', and 'stab'.  I once stabbed a guy in a barfight over a steak, and stuck him with the tab

    in proto-german 'stik-' means 'prick' and 'sharp' , (both of which i have been accused of being) and comes via latin 'in-stigare' ("to goad"), where we get 'instigate'.... 

    all related to the family name.  and which seems pretty apt sometimes, as i am often accused of being an instigating pr!ck who likes steak

    It blows my mind that you sail a 34 ft boat on a lake.  I grew up in Iowa so boats over 16' in general are a mystery to me, but now that I sail (buzzards bay) I completely forget that big lakes can have big boats!

    First name is Bill, middle is Ray. When my youngest son was at Ole Miss, we would do baby backs on game day at the Grove. Everyone liked them so much, they said we should open a rib place and we could call it Billy Ray's Lotta Ribs.

  • eggnitedeggnited Posts: 94
    Thought eggnited was a clever pun since it sounds like ignited. I took it to have multiplel meanings...ignited literally  like starting the fire...and also like someone who is off and running....excited to cook...eager to learn. Also thought it could be taken as united with other eggheads.
