  • Thank you all for your comments~~!! It was one amazing eggfest, even if I say so myself!?  Mark your calendars for next year........8th Annual Georgia Mountain Eggfest, May 18th and 19th, 2018.
  • SmokinTiger81 said: Well it is that time of year again--5 weeks from today is the Georgia Mountain Eggfest on May 20, 2017--the "best of the fests"  in my opinion.  The setting is beautiful, the tasters nice, the Friday night meet greet and eat…
  • chuckytheegghead said: Looks interesting and all but I personally don't see the savings in charcoal consumption offsetting the cost of the unit. Just not for me, but to each their own.  The charcoal saving wasn't the issue. The issue was…
  • I have the system and love it. I use that elevated charcoal basket routinely for grilling. Your grid is close to the charcoal and it uses very, very little charcoal. I haven't used my mini in 3 years since getting that. An excellent accessory that l…
  • SaintJohnsEgger said: You guys probably know about this but I just found it today and thought I would share with everyone.. Georgia Mountain Eggfest Recipes You have each year's recipes for 2012 - 2016. I also created a small web site …
  • Spaightlabs said: And the award for most ellipses ever used in one post goes to... Love those things~~~~! 
  • SmokinTiger81 said: Big old pot of best chili around finishing up on egg for church Souper Bowl luncheon tomorrow.  There will be no leftovers to haul back home.  That looks awesome........especially awesome since I was hankering for som…
  • piney said: Egret, I read your post and I/we know how hard it is to plan everything, try to find a venue, try to get sponsors on board, and to try to make everyone happy just to name a few. @JohnInCarolina, @tarheelmatt, worked their a$$ off la…
  • Well, before people start thinking we’re trying to stiff anyone by putting on this eggfest, let me explain a couple of things. First, this fest is a fundraiser for the GA Mt. Fair which, in recent years, has teetered on the brink of closing. This…
  • leemschu said: Today I cooked chili on the egg for the first time. It was actually super easy. I wish it would have been just a little spicier but good overall! Sorry I forgot to get any in the pictures of the process. You want spicier..…
  • TN2TX said: The lid on my large won't stay open. I have to fully open, hold, and almost balance it to keep from closing on me. Has anyone else had this issue? I am assuming it has something to do with the hinge but I don't know exactly what to …
  • ktpbighead said: Came from a 2006 Eggtoberfest, Kevin Jacques. Here's the proof: 
  • I'm sincerely sorry this happened. Maybe we can blame "fest fatigue" for clouding the good judgement of the dealer, but, this should never have happened. Greg, thank you for your patience. You're shown more patience than I would have. You'd already …
  • It would be helpful if everyone would just kind of back off on this. The dealer is very reputable and goes overboard to satisfy a customer......I know this and I'm the one that got this dealership started, so their reputation is quite good; trust me…
  • JNDATHP said: i am new to the egg and excited to start cooking on it. Only problem I'm having is that the lid won't stay open. Any suggestions? Tighten the two nuts shown in the attached photo and this should fix that problem. Be sure yo…
  • Zippylip said: Staygold said: I'm not looking to put anyone down or drag anyone's name through the mud. Really?  The same people that sold you an egg they incorrectly assembled then stuck it in your ass sideways when their inc…
  • bgebrent said: John, what a great job you did this year, and according to others, best year ever!  Glad you're up for it again next year for sure.  Truly enjoyed meeting you! If you can, take a look at this forum thread.  Maybe you can help the…
  • Staygold said: My wife got home around 8:45pm last night with my demo egg purchased from Eggfest in Hiawassee. I decide I'm gonna start off with something simple today for dinner, some burgers, dogs, and brats. I roll my large BGE about 10ft ou…
  • YouEnjoyMyEgg said: Never been to a fest but we will be in the area camping this weekend.  Does anyone know the pet policy?  Are pups allowed? No pet rule is in effect.........sorry. 
  • NecessaryIndulg said: Here's a site map of the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds for those of you that have never been to the Georgia Mountain EggFest.  The Meet & Greet will take place at the Main Exhibit Building. There will be a shuttle ru…
  • I wouldn't miss it for the world!!! Coming as a taster!!
  • blind99 said: @egret can you put two baskets in at the same time? It would be nice when grilling to keep the same distance from lump to grate but decrease the total mass of lit charcoal.  No reason you can't do that. Contact Charles Robe…
  • In the first place, the original question was whether to buy a mini or MMax. One of the comments that the mini is a toy is completely misleading and basically false. I've used mine for years just for the two of us. But, I haven't used it in over a y…
  • Mayberry said: This has nothing to do with Egging, other than the strong likelihood I'll purchase a 2nd, smaller Egg for travelling.  I am married, 3 kids: 6,3 and 1 yr old.  We love having them, and have a lot of fun.  However, we often find o…
  • The dealer here in Hiawassee, GA sells the MM for $499..........every day price.
  • Thank you, Hotch, for your help. Much appreciated. Merry Christmas to you and Shelly!
  • I use mine all the time and love it! I have a mini that just collects dust now!   These things work great and they're extremely well built.
  • Chubby said: Notice the Super Old School BGE..."deep dish pizza plate"!! Complete with Grate Mates!!!  I wonder whatever happened to that company??!!
  • Chubby said: Still have some odds and ends to finish up, a table to fabricate, and the stamped overlay to put on the concrete ...but at least I've got a place to cook in the shade, and some tunes to listen to now !! Fountains and lan…
  • sinc86 said: Alright, I hate to be the "Wal-Mart" shopper here and I ALWAYS support local business (own one myself) but I am just curious to know where a good place to buy another Egg would be? I have already purchased two Eggs from Mr. Mulch …
