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

    Well played, VI, well played.

    Every time I walk in DC I go to the Wall. It is the most incredible thing I have ever seen. After that I visit my grandfather in Arlington. Thanks for posting VI. Thanks for your service.

    Kennedys eternal flame is a profound experience as well. My grandfather's 21 gun salute still gives me chills thinking about it.

    Very nice VI, I believe we BBQ to celebrate the lives of our fallen Comrades.

    Tonight on the news there was a blurb on the soldiers selected for guard duty for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  I was familiar with most of the story; they are immaculate, go through the precision-choriographed ceremony regardless of weather, etc.  The news did not go into some other things those troops go through: the constant studying; memorizing; abstaining from alcohol for life; etc.  
    But, the thing I noticed tonight for the first time: one camera angle showed the cement pad that they march and change watch on; there were very distinctive black marks on the cement, perfectly spaced, right where they do their steps, their turns, their about-face's, etc.  Wow!  
    Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.

    Amazing observation.  I was 16 when I saw the ceromony of the changing of the guard.  I would love to go do it again, it's amazing.  My uncle is buried in Arlington as well. 
  • Wow! Caught me totally off guard. That brings things into perspective. Thank you
