Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

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

Lots of workspace and room for tools, charcoal and so on. And finally got rid of those nests ;-)

I cooked some Picanha today for the friends who helped moving the heavy granite countertops.

    Cool. Was just wondering about all the TX paraphernalia you had. Looks really cool. If you need anything else, I'm sure we can find a way to get it to you. I think a TX flag would look pretty cool with that setup :)

    Nice ! I´ll be 10 miles from Paderborn tomorrow when i meet my team for competition practice ;-)

    Berlin with the wall up must have left quite an impression to you. You should visit Berlin now. Theres been a BBQ Competition there for a couple of years on a beach in the middle of berlin. Too bad they removed that beach recently and that also ended the berlin barbecue competition.

    Heres an old thread about that one :

    It did leave quite the impression, especially passing through check point charlie into the east, we used to live next to the olympic stadt, I did revisit after the wall fell approximately 2 years later, what a difference.

    I will take a look thanks.

    Got my new EGG three weeks ago.  Spent the last three days building a nest.  Looked at the Post and went out with a ax and chopped it up.  Thanks a lot.  Will start over in the morning.

    Thanks for the pics. Now every time my wife says I'm spending too much money on eggcessories, I can show her that and she's got nothing to complain about.

    Hey Don!!

    First, let me say it's been way too long since I've seen a post from you...on any board. I always love looking at your pictures. Your food always looks outstanding. I'd ask what you've been up to, but its obvious you've been working hard on your new Egg-center. Cooked in any contests lately?

    Second, your Egg-center....I don't know where to start. It looks amazing. That looks like it will be perfect for some of the larger parties I've seen you post about. I'm sure you are gonna have many great memories cooking out of it.

    Third, I think you maybe in some violation of  international barbecue by having too many Eggs. Rather than reporting you, I'll glady take one off your hands. ;)

    Love what you've done with that Weber kettle in the second picture.=))

    Can't wait to see more pics of your new kitchen in action. Thanks for sharing.

    Let me tell you guys.

    I have followed Don Marco for several years, from the Texas BBQ Rub forum to the other BGE forum.  He is a master chef.  I have drooled over his creations and his plating is nothing short of world class professional.

    Glad to see you back, Herr Don.  Love the Texas plaque on your wall !!!!  Looking forward to more of your works of art.

    If there were a contest for best layout, it'd be over. What an awesome set up.
    If Canary can do it you can too!
