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

    Looks like a lot of fun! Unfortunately my cooking is typically fueled by a 80 proof companion (at least) and don't feel comfortable competing with others. Congrats on your results!!

    How about some info on the mini apple pies? Good job bringing the next generation into the cook.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    Man that is awesome! I would love to compete some day, and to place your first time out is amazing. Did you do a lot of test cooks ahead of time and have a honed strategy going into it or did you just use a favorite go-to recipe? Would love to hear about it!

    Competition takes some guts and plenty of effort!  Needless to say "plenty of money" too!  I have friends in competition cooking and it takes special people to do it !
