Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

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

Texas Fest was a great time. Good to see old friends and meet some new ones. Weather cooperated quite nicely. Finally got to meet my Hero; Beli! He not only made the trip, but he brought reinforcements!

    Great pics Lawn Ranger! It was good to see the old die hards and meet new ones. What a day of good food and friends on the lake.

    Bob was very pleased with the venue this year. He told me he has booked it for the same weekend next year (the first Saturday in May).

    Texas Eggfest 2011 - May 7th on Lake Travis in Austin.

    Cheers,

    Great pictures Mike!! Looks like everyone had a great time. I noticed a lot of the "usual suspects". Many new faces too. Wow!! Beli was really decked out!! I love the shirt and hat, he looks like a true Texan. Wish we could've made it. There's always next year.:)

    Hi Mike,
    Was good to meet you at my first Eggfest.
    I was with the little T-ball player and we helped devour your last breakfast pizza. It was really dee-lish. As a newbie I'm looking forward to many great meals from my own Egg. Thanks for the tips.

    You are a prime reason for me to travel to these events. Don't worry,... on my end...Sharon is aware. However, don't tell the Chicken. I understand he's easily riled when his "Girls" are involved.

    You're the very best.
