Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

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

Dizzy Class Hosted By Chris Capell

I attended Chris' competition school this weekend and I have to tell you fellow eggheads it was one helluva good time!!  Chris and his team hold nothing back and run the class just like a KCBS event right down to the turn in times.  My hands are worn out from writing notes and my belly is distended from not only the four KCBS meats, but also the duck breasts, prime ribeye, goat cheese mashed potatos, asparagus, bourbon smoother than a school marm's leg and a full blown breakfast (including scrapple) to boot.  Hell, it was worth the cost and effort to get out here from Nebraska just to eat!

Chris and his wife are wonderful hosts and open their home to the students like they are part of their family.  Whether you compete or not, the amount of tricks and years of knowledge gained is priceless.  I'm going to try and meet up with Chris tomorrow and take a tour of the nuts and bolts of his operation.  I'm tired, full and still a little hung over from last night!!

Cheer's,

Mike

    It's at Chris' house in Fairfax, VA.  He did two classes this year, one in April and the one this weekend.  Here is a link to the details.

    Mike, thanks so much for the kind words, but especially for traveling all this way. It made my day to have everyone leave with smiles on their faces, full bellies, and hopefully armed with a little more knowledge. Look forward to seeing you later this morning or early this afternoon. Thinking I'll be outta here by 2....had no energy to put everything away last night. Went to bed at 7:30 ;)

    Thanks again.

    Hey Chris, it was my pleasure and the things I learned are invaluable whether competing or cooking in the back yard.  Thanks again for the tour of Dizzy Pig and best of luck on your possible expansion!
