Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

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

Have we had a "how did you pick your handle" thread yet?

    I'm a Neil Young fan. He has a song out about Montezuma.  Named my black lab ZUMA 35 years ago.  Just loved the name ZUMA for some reason.  This is my first comment on the forum.  Have been lurking for 5 years.  Love to egg and wouldn't want to be without them.  Large & small sits on my back patio.  Thanks for all the fun people and hope to add more in the future.
    Welcome! Now that you are out of the closet, comment some more!

    @Skiddymarker... love your sig line about "10 kinds of people"... saw that on a t-shirt once.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I'm 6'3" with a large frame so everyone called me bigguy. One of my competition numbers is 136.

    And in case you're wondering, it's true what they say about guys that wear big shoes and big gloves....... we wear big shoes and big gloves.

    My first name is Allen, friends often call me Al. I used to deer hunt with the same bunch of guys and couldn't afford a rifle. I always carried the same old shotgun. All those guys called me "shotgun Al". The 3 is an Earnhardt thing. Shtgunal3. I've used the same screen name for about 15 years.

    My original handle was "Charlie".  Everytime i suggested something on the forum - the other members always said "Sorry Charlie" this and that!!!  Finally the moderator suggested it be changed to "charlie tuna" if i wanted to remain!!! #-o

    I used to go fishing alot and compared to my dad I needed the big waders.  So when I went online I started using that about 20 years ago.  Wish now I thought more about it.

    @caliking. What a small world. I attended St. James School, left in '74.  Nothing beats kati rolls from Nizam or Bihar's in New Market. My brother operates Sing Cheung sauce factory and a shoe store near K C  Das in the Chowringhee area.

    @Canugghead: Ha! A small world indeed!

    La Martiniere, batch of '94. Nizam's kati rolls are still the bomb, the biryani is still probably the best there is. I have a post on another forum from when I made kati rolls one time - I'll send you the link.

    Should have gone with my sons advice 'TJ Cooker'. Instead used initials and last name.
