Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
National BBQ Month sure was tasty! We hope you got to try just as many new BBQ recipes as we did and some old favorites as well. If not, you can find all our BBQ recipes here and try them out all summer long. One of our favorites was Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise and Ted Reader’s Rum Injected Sweet Potatoes. As the weather’s heating up, use your EGG for a cool treat-Ice Cream Sandwiches! Keep an eye out for some Father’s Day recipes from chefs & their dads, coming soon!

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

I am Bi-forum and proud. Nice to see more and more going both ways on this and the old forum. Two forums= twice as good. Twice the info.

    I have reported you to the police.  You will be forced to put a sign in your yard on Halloween that says "Bi-Forum Offender, BGE Deviate, Children Not Allowed".

    I only enjoy one forum. If she likes both I'm ok with it. Just want her to share the other forum....or at least give me updates.

    watched the split with great fondness, some excellent entertainment there.  Never understood the animosity had by many over it, it was what it was.  It is unfortunate though that so many have a this place or that place mentality, dividing the talent into two doesn't really seem to serve anyone's interests

    Zippy,
    You will find that the two forums have very different personalities.  And, I don't think that is a bad thing.

    As they say in Louisiana, "vive la différence".

    As for Little Steven, he has acknowledged he is "bi".

    Whoa !  Smile when you say that, my friend !  You don't have such a pristine reputation here yourself, sir, and I think you're talking about an outstanding person (unless you mean Tweeve)..

    I'm sure you're right regarding individuals, but in the end all forums share personality types.  There are those here seeking knowledge, others looking at pictures, others socializing, others posting methods & pictures & others just entertaining themselves - in very short order I've seen the very same style disputes that plagued the old forum as far back as I remember so in that sense there isn't much of a difference.  By the way I don't think any of that's bad either, I never saw a problem with the old forum.  Of course BGE saw it differently & it's their gig so here we are.  This one, that one, I couldn't care less though I would like to see a consolidation for nothing more than convenience purposes, the old forum has a very deep well of serious talent that could add to the well here.  It seems apparent that this forum will be the last one standing in the end given all the circumstances, or at least I think it will be

    The formatting of the other board is painful - and that's being generous.  This one isn't cutting edge, but it's far better than that one.  Absolutely nothing against any BGE forum as I don't know any of the politics or personalities.  All I know is that I like to have an easily accessible format, and this one covers it.

    cssmd27, it isn't my intention to re-ignite the 'which forum is better' argument, I think that probably had its time last year.  Suffice it to say both forums offer some good features and some bad.  Everyone probably wants the same thing in the end, to get what they're looking for when they come here.  I'm just thinking a lot of it is divided up between two venues & it would be nice if somehow it were all consolidated, that would really amp up the convenience for all concerned

    I think that is a major misunderstanding.  There are veterans here just as there are on the other forum.  And, in my experience, people on this forum are more innovative and willing to experiment than the other forum.  Yes, I can name a couple of people on the other forum that push the envelope, but not as much as they do here.

    Yes, many of the people on this forum are not as new to the BGE as those on the other forum.  But, most of them have been gassers, or offset smokers for many years.  After one week to learn the temperature control, they are up to speed with the 10 year "veterans".

    As for me, I welcome anybody who wants to participate here, but I do resent people coming over here, touting their "old guard" experiences and linking back to what they consider the better forum.

    well, I can agree with welcoming anyone to participate here as I would welcome anyone to participate there.  I end my agreement there as I don't resent anyone for linking to anything because of what the 'consider' to be a better forum; personally I could'nt care less what anyone's personal beliefs are regarding a given forum.  If Village Idiot posts a cook that I like, I don't resent it or you because you consider this to be a better forum, I just like your cook - your forum preferences are irrelevant to me

    But, you would never link it back on the other forum.  That has never been done., but the opposite is done daily.

    in the end isn't it all about egging and sharing cooks regardless of which forum ? its kinda disheartening that posts that have nothing to do with a cook or technique gets more views and comments then some one asking a question at times . or rather lately most of the time

  • I visit and post occasionally on both forums (like both for different reasons), but VI is correct. You would never, never see a link at the other site linking this place, but you see that place linked here almost daily without anyone complaining most of the time.
