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

Pride & Humility

We're so proud of our boy and his academic achievements, but even more so of his humility in accepting the awards and praise. The irony of his humility making my chest swell with pride is not lost on me...

Here are his awards for most accomplished reader, writer and public speaker, highest math scores, highest academic scores overall, his metal for being on the Principal's List (all "A" grades) for the entire year and his Gold Certificate from the President's Education Awards Program for Outstanding Academic Excellence. This is the second year in a row he has been all A's and highest scores.

    Congrats and beat that chest.
    My kids are 4 & 1 so I got some time. I remember and realize now how proud my dad was of me and my athletic/education accomplishments.

    BTW public speaker? That is some major skill right there... Good stuff.

    That doesn't seem to be like the awards my kids got. Most of them involved suspension

    His Dad has too many skeletons in his closet for a Presidential run... poor kid.

    Thanks y'all. I'm thinking about making some sort of shadow box to display these things (and the one's he got last year. I'm looking to make this shadowbox scalable (able to add on) in the hope that he continues these kinds of achievements. Any ideas?
