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

The weather used to be enough justification for living here but the list of negatives is just getting too long.

Sales Taxes - highest in US.

Lousy Schools

Income Taxes increasing so we can continue to pay (public service union extortion payments (pensions).

Lousy Schools

Rude Drivers

More potholes than streets

Self-Serving politicians  (oh, that's an oxymoron)

Now from those same gutless, self-serving wonders: Meatless Mondays:

Meatless Mondays - I'm going to stop at the butcher shop on the way home and buy some more meat.

We need to have a Monday Night Cook-in

    You reap what you so. No one to blame, but the voters who keep voting for entitlements at the sake of their own liberties. Sheep. The rest of the country is following suit. I don't feel sorry for CA or any state that elects socialists to "lead" them. I find it sweet justice.

    From Salt Lake City here.  

    We'd love to send back to you many of our SoCal immigrants who began to arrive about 25 years ago, looking for cheaper housing, better, safer schools and neighborhoods, cleaner air, lower taxes etc.   We'll even give many of them some gas money for the trip.

    But you have to take back the gang bangers that they raised up once they arrived.

    Deal?

    The Ute Tribe called.  They also want all the immigrants to leave Utah.  I think they're talking about the 1850s.

    Yeah it sucks here, temp only got to 72 today, and the beach was kinda windy. I totally understand why you want to leave here, and tri tip wasn't even on sale this week. Sorry, I could go on and on, I lost one of my socks in the dryer, and Im just really frustrated. Life sucks

    I hate the beach to be too windy.  Sometimes sand blows into my Snooki Dark Tanning Maximizer (highly recommended by Snooki herself AND nolaegghead - see link below).  I haven't lost a sock in a while because I mostly like to feel the rocks and sand as I walk the beach in rolled up Dockers.  I did lose a pen last week.  DAMN IT - WHERE DO THEY GO?!  Maybe I could move to Somalia.....(happy dream!)

    He's just trolling - he has no meaningful opinion.  We try to keep politics off this site and focus on cooking with eggs.

    I don't know, I don't usually ask. 

    Just about every culture has been conquered, merged or (often forcibly) relocated at some point in their history.  I'm just pointing out (tongue in cheek) that it would be illuminating to to be aware that most of us European immigrants are a diaspora with a history not unlike the history of the indigenous people, except they've been here tens of thousands of years and I'm pretty the last cycle in Utah was under 200 years ago. 

    I could drive out to Salt Lake City and buy a condo, decorate it with a Ikea furniture and declare myself indignant about Californian families moving into my neighborhood.  Anyway, no snarkyness intended, just trying to keep it real.

    Hate to say so but  -that's the attitude that is destroying CA. Frog in a pot. Etc.

    One day, you'll wake up -WTF? What happened? People died defending our freedoms. Sad thing.

    I've lived in socialist countries - you can't just do what you want. If that's for you? Great.Enjoy it. The point of the post is - look what is happening in CA - be aware. If it's not for you in New Orleans or Austin Or Salt Lake City - don't let it happen because it will.

    Probably enough - so who's going to join me for a MEATY MONDAY EGGFEST?

    Sorry you're upset, I'm not gonna bite. If you find utopia tell me, I'll bring some tri tip, unless it grows on trees there, if that's the case I'll bring some beer, unless that's what the rivers are filled with. Never mind, just call me when you find it and we' ll go from there.
