Mothership Trip

I'm going to be in the Atlanta area for the NASCAR race Labor Day weekend, and I was wondering if I should go by the mothership? Will they take you behind the scenes. Is it worth it? Should I take some extra cash? Do they ever have any good deals?

    It's just a warehouse with a small (maybe 800-100 sq ft) retail shop.

    You'll get a chance to see all the accessories and they have a good selection of sauces and rubs.

    One of the guys will likely let you take a peek in the back, but it's normally just racks full of boxes.

    So, is it worth the trip?

    I guess that depends on what you hope to see/accomplish.

    It depends on whether you need something that you can't get at your local dealer. If you have a well stocked dealer they won’t have much different. I have been there 2 times and I like going there, but have to admit I was a little disappointed the first time as Fidel said it is not that big. The people that work there are great and fun to share Egg storey’s with. You will be able to see all of the Egg products they make. No special deals as that would not be fair to the dealers.

    I'll have some time to kill, so I guess I'll go by to say that I've been there. Plus, I might pick up some spices. Thanks.

    There is an Egg dealer just north of McDonough that has a good stock of Egg stuff, rubs, etc. Southern Patio is easy to get from the race track.

    If you go to the Mothership, eat at Matthews Cafeteria in Tucker. It is really good southern food. That is worth the trip to Tucker in my opinion.

    Most of us will be at the race with you. I'll be doing some sort of demo on the Coca Cola Fan stage on Saturday and Sunday. We'll also have a small display there. Stop by and say hello.

    About three miles north on 42 highway. In a strip mall on the left if you are north bound. The mall is a stand alone and down in a hole.
    The Ladies there are Egg folks and cook often at the store.
