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

    Your friends call to make reservations to have dinner at your house and they offer to bring all the uncooked food a day in advance.

    @CeramicChef-the simple solution-just buy BGE's so that each kid can get one when you check-out.  You can try this reasoning on SWMBO (it may work??).

    Some great lines in this thread-very creative.

  • I knew I was an Egghead when my 6 year old granddaughter gave me big hug and says "PaPa, you smell so good, just like the chicken".... brought a tear to my eye.

    When you no longer refer to it as cooking or grilling. Example... I think I'll go "egg" some ribeye's for supper.... I'm egging ribeye's and ABT's right now.

    You know you're an egghead when....your wife padlocks the lower vent closed and buys a bottle of K-Y Yours and Mine....

    At least pull the egg in the bdr so you can look at it...it's arousing....or buy her green lingerie with a daisy wheel black hat...oh, and a smoke machine.

    When you plan your weekends around what's going to be on the smoker.  And weeknights.  Heck, most of my life is revolving around the dang egg.  I find myself polishing and shining up each green dimple on the dome, even when it's not in use.........

    My name is Dyal....  I am an Eggoholic. :-S

    Even when the eggs aren't cooking, you are still having a drink on the deck sitting with them as if they are one of the boys. (do it all the time, and yes, I talk to them as well.)
    When you check the forum one last time before going to bed and hit the OT button by mistake coz SWMBO is giving you that look "you're on the egg forum AGAIN??"

    Sorry to hear that, though.

  • When you ask your 9 year old what she wants her mother to make her for her birthday dinner, and she says "can you make me Juicy Lucy's dad"?  (true story, happened last night)

    Talk about bringing a tear to your eye!

    ... when your spouse chases you around the house because you smell like a baby back rib.  :x
    Are you wearing sauce? :@)

    You know you're an Egg Head when you spend as much time taking and posting pictures of your cooks as you did actually cooking.

    When you don't shudder at the notion of having to shovel a 75 foot path through 2 feet of snow this weekend so  you can cook.
