Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

The 17th Annual EGGtoberfest was amazing - here are the highlights Click Here

Road trip to Salado from NOLA!

Well, we on the road ya hear.   We have so much crap packed we had to put the back seats down and create a cargo bay.

@Mickey - I'm equipped with some multi-media stuff like the giant ghetto blaster, MBP, projector.  I plan on projecting embarrassing pictures that I've collected of certain forum members on the side of the inn.  Should be quite exciting.  For music, the sky is the limit, but we might start off with some Zamfir and his mighty pan-flute, then progress to some old-school Hanson. 

We're just entering the nightmarish traffic in Baton Rouge (AKA "Red Stick").

Here are some pictures, I'll be sure to document a little more, as the terrain between here and San Antonio is extremely boring and it gives me something to do.

    80 is 12 o'clock.  Dual stage turbo charger probably hasn't even kicked in.  Damn traffic.

    Thanks caliking!  I have a giant cooler packed with an insane amount of vampire flesh sausage, turkey, brisket and butt, most of it already cooked sous vide, just needs a sear.  Looking forward to meeting you and all the other miscreants.

    Beet farming is over rated. I'd rather pickle.

    @sancho65 - We're going to San Antonio today, crash at my mom's.  On Friday we should get to Salado around 3PM, plus or minus an hour, depending on the lines at Specs.  We have 2 rooms at the inn on Friday and 5 there on Sat.  I'll be the guy with the giant ghetto blaster letting the air out of VI's Vespa tires so he stays an extra day.  Looking forward to meeting y'all.  SWMBO aka "fleurdelirious" will be trying to keep me from being arrested by the local 5-0.

    Just got off the phone with Hornhonk (he puts on the Plano Fest) and he just said he would be stopping in West as well for kolaches.

    Update - just rolled into Texas.  And passed the Cecil Attkinson Toyota dealership.  Made me think of Mickey.  I hear Cecil is active on the Grill Dome forum.

    I've made that drive a lot of times, and yes, it is boring.  What I want to know is how you talked SWMBO intro driving so you could be on the computer?? I always get stuck with driving....despite promises to the contrary before every road trip!

    I realize all of you are normal, everyday good people, but I feel like attending the Salado Eggfest would be equivalent to attending a MLB fantasy baseball camp. 

    I look forward to the flood of posts and pictures from the upcoming weekend.  Have fun, guys! Wish I could join you!

    @SaltySam. I think it will be more like someone loudly calling across the area; "VI get off you butt, your Vespa is on fire out in the field".

    I believe debauchery would be a good one-word description.  Sure wish I was going to be there. On my bucket list-at least til the post-fest documentation becomes viral :)

    I don't know if it'll be the case during this fest, but it seems like whenever there's a fest everyone get's so busy partying they don't post much....

    @CPARKTX - she loves driving and it's her brand new SUV...newness hasn't faded away yet.

    Thanks @bccomstock 

    I'm still bummed about Jermon Bushrod. 

    We're 181 miles outside of San Antonio - still in this lousy Houston traffic.

    I thought I saw VI on his Vespa, but it turned out to be a kid on a banana seat bike.
