GRILL GAZEBO: With the work on my indoor Kitchen completed, I turned my attention to my outdoor Kitchen. I added two lights to it in the Spring & added two base cabinets in the Summer. The two new cabinets were the base cabinet for my original Large BGE and the 3 drawer base cabinet.

EGGTOBERFEST XVI: The highlight of the year for me was when Debbie and I went down to Stone Mountain, GA outside of Atlanta for the EGGtoberfest. Several hundred people pay to cook on BGE’s and feed over 3,000 tasters. Debbie & I were tasters & I think she had even more fun than I did.
THANKSGIVING: Everything here but my Mom’s meat stuffing was grilled , smoked or baked on the Egg from the Apple Brined Turkey which was smoked roasted using a recipe called Herb Roasted Turkey, to the Cloverleaf Rolls and the Eggnog Bundt Cake & hermits for dessert.
