Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy! In case you’re willing to share and want to please a crowd, we recommend warm Margherita Pizza, FGL’s Lemon Pepper Wings or our favorite, S’mores in a Cone!


If you missed the 17th Annual EGGtoberfest here are the highlights Click Here Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I think they had more attendees for the classes than they expected.

There were also classes on Veggies and seafood that unfortunately I missed as we were so stuffed from eating that we needed to walk it off by strolling down to the Chatuge Lake and up to the Rhododendron garden at the top of the fairgrounds.

The food stopped being served at 3 PM to allow the Demo Eggs time to cool off. At 3:30, the drawing started for prizes for the cooks. Here's a look at the bounty for the cooks: Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos
There was also a raffle for a Small Egg in a nest which the lucky gentleman in the red sweatshirt won: Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

We had a little break while folks cleaned up and 100+ demo eggs went to some new or repeat Eggheads. Then it was on to the After Party. Here's the venue as folks started trickling in: Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Overall, with the exception of some rain, it was a great fest! John Hall and his team did a heck of job with a rather large fest (2nd largest after the Corporate EGGtoberfest). I'd love to return to a future GA Mountain Fest and cook (just need to figure out the logistics and sign up immediately after cooks tickets are available as they sell out incredibly fast). Thanks @Egret for all the work you do for this fest!

I'm glad my wife and I made the trip out from California. Georgia was a lot of fun and the people were incredibly nice. When the weather was nice the views were great too!
