Hi All! So glad to be here. New to the forum. Also new to the world of Eggdom. Proud owner of a large BGE. Still trying to find my way. One successful overnighter, ribs and numerous steaks. Still trying to find my culinary creativity and venture away from the usual gas grill gastro fare...burgers, dogs, chicken, steaks, etc.

So many ideas. I live in Atlanta and would be interested in learning what needs to be done to attend the Eggtoberfest as a spectator. Maybe next year as a participant (gotta get my Egg legs first).

At any rate, just a quick hello from an excited (and excitable) rookie.

Best eggards,

Chris in Gwinnett

    Welcome to the place that will make you feel normal!! :laugh: No matter what anyone else may say (no, I do not have a problem, and I am not looking at porn) it is a passion not an addiction. :silly:

  • Hey Fidel...I live in Buford as well. I figured there are several of us around here. I am quite certain that I haven't joined a cult....Right? Well, maybe a little.

    Welcome to the cult. You will be an old hand in no time. I really think that having an Egg encourages a lot more creative cooking, even when cooking indoors.

  • Chris - there is a sub cult in your area that call themselves North Georgia Eggers AKA NGEs. Be real careful with them. :woohoo:

    They are multiple egg owners, buy lump by the freight car load, consume large quantities of cervesa, and always have 10 lbs of bacon on hand just in case. B)

    Call the home store and ask them to put you on their email list. They are now ofering some low cost classes on cooking a variety of things. You would get some great instruction and meet alot of EggFolks. welcome to the Egg Family.
