CNN "Grill Master" Update # 2

Got another email a couple of days ago from CNN asking questions about my video. Those of you who may be thinking of submitting something should keep these in mind.

* Can you confirm you shot this video? Is there anyone else to courtesy?
* When was this shot?
* How long have you owned your Big Green Eggs?
* What sizes do you have?
* When did you build your outdoor kitchen? How long did it take?
* How often do you grill?
* Do you have a specialty?
* What do you like best about grilling?
* Do you give CNN permission to share your iReport online and/or on TV?

Then I got this today.

As part of our “grill master” series, we’re planning a piece about Eggheads. I would, of course, love to include your story! I have a couple of additional questions for you.

* What’s your wife’s first name? Does she mind being mentioned in this story?
* Do you have any photos of you and your wife in the Coop? (If you are wearing your “Egghead” shirt, that would be fantastic!)
* Have any friends or family bought Big Green Eggs thanks to your encouragement?
* How old are you?
* What do you do for a living?

If these are 'test questions' I think I can answer enough to pass LOL

The statement, "As part of our “grill master” series, we’re planning a piece about Eggheads." really got my attention. I may have to polish up the Chicken Ranch some, maybe lubricate the joints on 'The Girls' and start behaving... Naaaaaaa!

That's the latest folks.

    Ha... Paris would find the Chicken Ranch interesting. She will likely recognize Ms Mona, since they are from the same fru-fru line. But Ms Mona has seniority here and freely exercises it when threatened by intruders.

    As for the paparazzi, I've got my Flip video camera. Maybe I can make a movie of them snooping around.

    Wanna be in the movies huh? Send a sample of yourself just being you. Like any amateur picture-taker I will review it with a critical eye and if you've got 'it' I will give you just consideration for one of my next blog-busters.

    Good stuff man, showem the stuff. ;)

    Ha... Trickery will get you anywhere.

    Now that we know CNN intends to do a story on the Big Green Egg, I think others should chime in with their own story about their Eggs.

    I'll try to promote a few things, like Eggfests, the Forum, the friendships that have developed, the colorful characters, the Eggs in competition events and most certainly Eggtoberfest. If they REALLY want to do a story they can get enough out of all that to do a whole summer series.

    Yea, and invite a few of us to New York or some place that's cooler than in Texas right now.

    See you in New York.

    If CNN is looking for characters, the Chicken Ranch would be a good start, but if they REALLY want to meet up with a bunch 'a lovable nuts all they have to do is hang around the Forum a bit. We do have a way of 'fun'n' with each other, don't we...
