Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

Suggestions on BBQ places

Leaving tomorrow to head to Eggtoberfest from Annapolis Maryland, any suggestions of BBQ places to stop at to try ? I will be traveling down I-85 and making a stop in Charlotte.
