Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Get ready to turn up the heat as we dive into August. While there are only a few weeks left to perfect those tailgate recipes, summer isn’t over yet! Two things we’ll be making this month are Chile Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops and Bell Pepper Kabobs. Then, relax after a cookout with a cool dessert cooked on your EGG - Ice Cream Sandwiches! You can mix and match your favorite cookie flavors with ice cream flavors. Simple, yet delicious!

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

    You will need a BGE store to sponsor your fest as well...good luck as they are a lot of fun...there are or have been several fests in your area already...

    I'm in.  I am pretty sure my buddy @MemphisBBQ and a couple more Egghead friends will make it as well.

    As for location, Nashville, TN would be a central location for many of us and there are plenty of places to stay and things to do.

    I'd pick a quiet location like Salado. Easy to get around. A good dealer would help...i know Mickey sold all the demo eggs plus 4 more. That should interest a dealer. Keep it laid back and fun. There's the alcohol issue...finding a public place that will allow it. I'd spend some time talking to Mickey or Plano...they've done them. If you had it in Murfreesboro I'd invest the time to help out getting it kick started...will do what i can to help anywhere.

    Oh...have an after party or the day before for the cooks to hang out.

    I'll show up for a Nashville event, or anything close enough.  Just an excuse to get away!

    Not only a dealer has to be in 100% but the Distributor has to be on board as well.

    I agree @henapple a smaller town could possibly be better. I have a dealer friend, not sure about the whole eggfest this year.

    Just see if a few people in our area would be interested in a get together.

    Maybe this year we could just meet up and have a pow wow to plan for a bigger fest. Hell,if there's only 20 of us finding a spot should be easy. If we could get a few eggs and kegs together we're bound to come up with something. Keep the train rolling. When i get home I'll look for a few egging spots.

    @henapple
    That's exactly what I'm talking about. I'm good for traveling with my egg. A camp ground might work.

    MrCookingNurse that is the story of Salado. I was talking to Spring Chicken and LawnRanger at first trying to see if we could get 20 people to-gather for a Mini (real Minis, not meaning small) Gathering. Just come and bring your Mini. Near 400 people was never a thought. Year one was over a 150 with a store and Distributer kick in. Year two near 275/300 and last Sat at 350. My one thing I held on to was it would be free to everybody who came. Best of luck to you and hang on to henapple.

    Mickey is right...no cost. Keep it laid back. No mangrate salesmen. Just egging, eating, meeting...and maybe a cocktail or two.

  • This is an interesting thread because @Owossoegger is putting together a farmers market cook. I said I would help and cook. We hope this will attract Eggheads to join us. Could be the beginning of a Michigan EggFest!

    So for our first go around, who can travel with egg?? I can bring a small and a large. Also would y'all wanna shoot for may or fall? I think a campground would work good too. See if we can get reserved spots close to each other an walk around and eat and talk. Or use the pavilion at a camp ground

    Fall would be pretty.

    We could set one up in Gatlinburg in the fall with the leaves an' all.
