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! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

What is the average age of eggheads here?

    Let's just say the year I was born, Japan invaded China, Amelia Earhart disappeared on her flight around the World, and the Hindenburg crashed in a ball of fire just a few miles from my birthplace.  Older than dirt does apply to me.

    36... But have been a wanna be egg head for over 7 years.

    Owned an egg for just over 1 month (40 lbs of coal already gone!).

    Ok, so the owner of this thread must now add up everyone's age and divide by the number of responses to finally get to the average age!
  • agreed. Lots of young'uns in their 20's on here. Love it. The egg is in good hands

    I don't know why you would be shocked.  I am a great cook (hubris) and have been for 40 years.  Why would I be surprised that someone 40 years my junior is not also a great cook.  Actually what puzzles me is when I cross paths with someone (usually a guy) who can't even fry an egg or boil a hot dog.

    @doc, I totally agree with you. Even sadder when it is a woman.
    Had a girlfriend once, who had to call her parents to figure out how to get the leaves off the lettuce head.

    Hahahaha.  With our educational system, some of the young'uns won't be able to figure it out.  I was born between Pearl Harbor and Operation Overlord, 4 months after Isoroku Yamamato got shot down.

    OK, you guys are either making me feel old, or well read.

    Hopefully, the latter, Taz.  My college graduate niece had never heard of WWII before her granddad told her about his experiences on Guam.  I think her response was "whatever".

    I'm shocked so many people in early and mid 20s can 1) afford $1,000 grill 2) realize the quality investment instead of buying something more "trendy" 3) how many have even heard of one at that age.

    It's meant as a compliment but usually a higher end quality investment like this would be associated with someone older. BGE not a traditional bachelor pad type accessory.

    I am not sure if it is an affordibility issue with us young folks as much as it is a "want" .. i am now in my mid 30's and i could of bought an egg or two 10 years ago..  but i had no "want" to have one.. wasnt until i spent years cooking on a gasser, etc that i saw the benefit of an egg

    unless youre out there truly searching for alternatives to a gas grill and wanting something different - i just dont think it appeals to someone whether they are 24 or 54.

    I couldn't afford squat in my early 20's. I was eating ramen with tuna in a barraks room with no A/c. I could barely buy booze, smokes and boot polish on payday.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    But Travis, what about those Le Cordon Bleu trained chefs in the Mess Hall?  I have heard their Boeuf Bourguignon was to die for and their omelette stations for breakfast were incredible.  Why would you even want a BGE ?

    On the weekend, the mess hall next to my barraks would close. The nearest open mess hall was about a mile. You would think that wasn't very far for a 21 year old infantryman, wouldn't you? Well, when its -40 degrees without windchill and there is 3 feet of snow on the ground, I ain't walking anywhere. And no, I didn't have a car, this was before all the deployments so pvts didn't have any money. I think my first paycheck was $350 for two weeks.

    hahaha.  My first paycheck was $75 for a month.  However, I am a tad older than  you.  I remember that first paycheck.  After saluting and screaming "PVT WILLSON REPORTS FOR PAY, SIR !!!!", then captain had me (and everyone else) sign a sheet of paper before he handed me my pay.  After everyone had been paid, he said "Congratulations, you all just signed a paper reenlisting in the Army for another 6 years."  Of course, they didn't hold us to it, but I've read every paper I've signed since then.  It was a good lesson.

    VI, Wife and I had a sign hanging up in my Dry Cleaners that said "Even Crusoe couldn't get all his work done by Friday"  Fully 50% of my customers couldn't explain what the sign meant.  We have become an "unread" Nation.

    I wasn't aware of the Egg until maybe 5 years ago.  When I first saw it, I had no clue about its capability or why it was special.

    "between pearl harbor and operation overlord" is a bit of a span of time.  thank you for the more specific follow up details
    :)>-

    at work once, i asked this question of a young woman who thought it was funny that she didn't know anything: "put these wars in chronological order: the revolutionary war, the civil war, world war I, and world war II".

    she could not do it.

    on the military channel, one of the vets was saying that he speaks at a lot of high schools, and was once introduced BY A TEACHER as being a "veteran of world war eleven"
