Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Hop on down to your nearest EGG dealer this week to pick up some Easter EGGcessories! Here are a few that may be useful for Easter, the V-rack, electric charcoal lighter and flexible skewers! Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Is this the end of a really cool forum.

    IMHO if you don't visit both sites it is your cooking loss.  There are many things to learn and many good cooking ideas offered on both. Both sites have their PIA idiosyncrasies, but I have received much useful and novel information by reading both sites.  
    As far as the vitriol, there has been plenty on both sites and finger pointing is just childish!  If you don't like the thread or the direction it is going then don't respond and let the thread die.

    VI, i don't think i said anything about there being no experts here.  not at all.  i always find that no matter how i trip over myself to explain something, i'm still misunderstood.  we all are.

    my point was simply that the conversation 'there' is less likely to be as active because a lot of newer members are here.  when there was one forum, the new members continually provided an influx and varied conversation.  so over there, with fewer new people, you'll see a lot of OT than even before.  you just aren't going to have those repeateding discussions where newbies are asking about butt, brisket, etc. because there aren't many newbioes there any more.

    newbies aren't a bad thing, and it also doesn't imply that there is more or less expertise one polace or another.

    i'm tired of trying to to find different ways to say that there are pluses and minuses to each forum.  i get nothing from it.  but there's a reason i'm both here and there same for mickey and a few others. unless i'm truly stupid or ignorant about which is so much better that i needn't ever visit the other .

    i do know that there are some on each forum who decide to stay away based on grudges, rather than content.  that's too bad. but nothing i can do, and it doesn't affect me directly either way

    This is a very civil thread. I, however, feel it my duty to warn some of you about the extreme beef that exists between this forum and that one. Its a good idea to not talk about the other place. I learned the hard way. 

    How do you find the other forum?

    I guess I owe them an apology for ripping their site when (take a picture) it was me all along. My bad but we live to fight another day.
