Restaurants Using BGE?

I get it.  It would be the most operationally inefficient way to cook for profit, but are any of you aware of restaurants in the Austin/central Texas area that actually use BGEs?  For that matter, are there any restaurants anywhere that do?

    There was a guy who opened a honeybaked ham shop in Lakeway area that also sold BBQ. He used an egg. He either moved or shut down pretty quick so I didn't eat there. He may be around somewhere, not sure.

    In Akron, OH of all places, Edgar's Restaurant, which is on a public golf course, serves food cooked on the Egg.  They serve Pork Loin, Prime Rib, Grilled Chicken, Brisket, all cooked on the Egg. The night I was there they had a thick cut smoked pork chop as a special. You walk past 3 or 4 Eggs as you enter.  After eating that pork chop, first thing I ever had on an Egg, I owned one with in 2 weeks.

    Here in Atlanta there is a Food Truck that uses a BGE (can't remember the name) and 2 restaurants - Muss & Turner's which had their kitchen modified to permanently use BGEs and Local Three which does some of its cooking on the patio on the BGE (both restaurants owned by the same folks).  Damn fine burgers at Local Three on Saturday afternoon's (called Burger's and Brew!)

    There used to be a place in Gulfport, MS called Grate Grills & More.. They were an Egg dealer and had a restaurant as part of the place.. They have since closed.. Had some good food too. Just a tough location.

    None here but our Cub Scout pack has one that gets used at all camp-outs. The grill-masters regularly cook up pork butts and briskets for 100-150 at a camp-out. The Egg isn't their only apparatus, but it added a nice touch. It was the first one I'd ever seen 'in ceramic' and I was immediately smitten. Similar to tj it was responsible for having one shortly thereafter.

    Wow, I've been buying stuff from them for years and never knew that.  They must have them in the back.  I've seen the dining room - the place on Magazine, right?  Wonder if they're on the forum.

    Yep, that's the place.  I don't think they are on the forum, but I saw this come across their twitter feed one day:

    I have not been to one of their private dinners yet.  Had to go out of town when friends had one planned.  However, their meat is great and I hear the dinners are awesome.

    I pretty much buy the same thing every time I'm there - the hanger steak and sometimes the flank. Good guys, great products, I'd recommend them to anyone in the NOLA area.
