Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Atlanta Eggfest

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
Just a question, i thought i saw on the CD which came with my egg, that Atlanta has an Eggfest. If this is true and when is it. I may plan my vacation around it, I am from Illinois. Is it worth doing that?

    beginner bob, I've been to three. I've cooked at three. If you come and don't feel you've got you money's worth Saturday evening please let me know so I want tell anyone else the wrong story. If you love EGGS and you make an EGGtoberfest you will not want to miss another. The three F"s. Great Food, Great Friends, Great Fun and we might even have a boiled peanut if you've never ate one. [p]Hope to see you in Atlanta,
    Poppasam

    I have been cooking there for about 5 years now. It is a blast. They have it at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Tickets usually go on sale the beginning of August and it sells out pretty quick.

    Large with nest went for 725 last year. Not sure if anything else was included...great deal. If you are interested be sure to fill out the form to reserve one as they go fast. Not sure when the form becomes available. Eggtoberfest is a great time!
