Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

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

a hummingbird knows it's going to be a bad day when he sees the feeder looking like this!

    That looks a tad uninviting. :ohmy:

    They are back in SA as of a couple of weeks ago.

    Best to you and Pat.

    Great shots, Mike.

    Were those through a window or just a long way off?

    Talk about a name from the past.... How have you been doing? You were at the very first Texas Eggfest in Temple, Texas and we're hoping you show for the next one in Austin at The Oasis.

    Welcome back.

    I have to agree with your Hummers, that would be a bad day for me!

    I used to do volunteer work at a bird banding station and a Hummer in a mist net was always a major challenge, they are so tinny and have a strange design to them. They are related to the Kingfishers, of all things. If you could see their entire leg they have very short upper leg and a long lower leg and perch very much like a Kingfisher. This also makes them very tricky to untangle from a mist net.
    I would have a feeder for them here but I already have Mockingbirds that nest out side my door. The Mockers and Hummers are both territorial and I don't know how they would get along. I have watched Hummers adopt a favorite perch and they will chase away any one else that tries to use it. For their size they can be aggressive little devils, like a little dog that thinks it is the big dog on the block. :)

    Oh my goodness, it is great to hear from you. We talk about you all the time and wonder what you are doing - now we know....congratulations on your upcoming marriage.

    We won't be able to see you in Atlanta, and I see where May 9th is a little busy, but PLEASE try to make it to Oklahoma on April 18th. The whole "old gang" group is going to be there and it would be great if you could join us...
