Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you had a great Labor Day and are excited for the start of the NFL this week. If you’re not a sports fan, you can celebrate National Breakfast Month all September and National Cheese Pizza Day on September 5. We can’t wait to share some awesome fall recipes with you all! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

We've been insulted.

Watching an hour long History Channel bit on "barbequing".  They just explained the whole range of equipment, from a corporate trailer-tractor rig down to a Webber.  Guess what, not a single ceramic, let alone a BGE.

  • Show says aired 2006.  They just did a good bit on Webber (completely deserved IMO), but I would posit that ceramic cookers (in one form or another) have been around for millenia, and the BGE is a revolution in America.

  • Once, while driving a school bus, I listened to a couple of Middle Schooler's arguing about whether we fought the Australians in WWII.

    At least, they knew there WAS a WWII, unlike my college graduate niece.  :-B

    First rule of fight club: we. do. not. talk. about. fight. club.

    Good.  We're not going to have to enforce our wrath on the producer of the history channel show for talking.

    "It was all as I had left it except that now it was winter. I looked out of the door to the big deck and saw my friend sitting on his nest, the dome open and the sunlight coming into the DFMT. It was smoking and I did not know whether to go out and check the coals or go upstairs first and put on my apron. I decided to go upstairs."
    (Paraphrased)

    This was a quote I was reminded of that will allow us Eggers time to reflect on this sad day.

    Lol, well played.

    Ha, I am a huge Hemmingway, err, Eggingway fan.

    "The first thing you noticed, coming out of the stream and up to the island, was a small smudge on the  horizon, usually marked by a column of smoke.  Next you could see the tall coconut palms rising higher above the horizon, and then finally the house.  The house was built right into the island, like a ship, and when the trade winds blew, the smoke from the Big Green Egg on the deck went through the house from wind side and out the lee...."

  • Old man and the sea is my favorite book. It's also the first book I read my son. Islands in the stream is a close second.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Thomas Hudson rested on the sand, and felt the fine clean sea breeze.  He thought to himself that he had never seen finer, or more perfect and clean sand.

    "I must think like the men we pursue; no I must think better than them," he thought.

    He wondered if they had already passed Cayo Sal, or had they gone inside and were hiding in the mangroves until night.

    "We are chasing them well," he thought, "and if we don't over run them we will catch them, or push them into someone else who will catch them"

    "If only we knew whether they had an Egg," he wondered.

    He dozed off to sleep, and dreamed of his own Egg, and murmured about smoked salmon. 

    Henry came up to lay a light blanket over the sleeping man, and hearing him said, "Oh, you poor son of a bitch, there is no Egg on the ship."

    Hemingway is one of my favorite authors, along with John Steinbeck. "The Pearl" was one of the first books I ever read that really "said something" to me. Makes you love to read.

    Thomas Hudson lay on the floor of the big bedroom, that looked so much like a cabin on the old Normandy, and felt the cold wind coming under the door where the grass mat had been bent away.

    He often slept on the floor, the first night ashore, because he could not stand the rolling of the bed.

    He felt the roughness of the woven grass mat, and felt the pressure of the large cat that lay beside him and that was rubbing against him.  The cat's name, now, was Boy.  Once it had been Boise, named after the Cruiser, but now it was just Boy.

    Hudson pushed the cat hard with his hand, for Boy loved to be rubbed or patted just like a dog, and said "Where's the Egg, Boy, where's the Egg."  The cat erupted in loud, lion like purring.

    Hudson remembered that night, when he had had so many of the sea foam green drinks at the Gordito; the fine drinks with local rum, and lime, and no sugar at all, and which looked like the phosphorescence of the sea, and stumbling home had first said to Boy, "Where's the Egg."

    Hudson had been hungry and could not sleep, and he and Boy had found the Egg, and had made wings.

    Afterwards, as Hudson slept on this same floor, Boy had laid beside him, drunk with the rich smell of rum and wing sauce.

    Mornings, before daylight, I slipped into neighbor's yard and borrowed a plate setter, or a swing grate, or a thermapen, or some new lump, or things of that kind. Pap always said it warn't no harm to borrow things, if you was meaning to pay them back with pulled pork, sometime; but the widow said it warn't anything but a soft name for stealing, and no decent body would do it, unless it was brisket.
