  • 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 runnin…
  • 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 Mini Max vs. Mini Comment by egret May 3
  • 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 …
  • That looks great.......those hams smell so dang good when they're cooking! I did one of these at the cook at the Mothership a couple of weeks ago.....your ingredients look almost exactly like mine! Love the Jim Beam. I see you're using RRP's toothpi…

  • SMITTYtheSMOKER said: cazzy said: From a size perspective, Salado isn't a big fest. ....It's also one of the only free fests out there and they still give crap away!  fyi-Eggs by the Bay gives out over $6500 worth of gifts ea…
  • JoeMac said: I have been checking the web site recently, any idea when the demo egg prices will be avaliable? I'm hoping to have them up by close of business tomorrow!
  • Grillin_beers said: @egret do y'all have any demo eggs left? If so what sizes and what are the costs? Thanks! There will be plenty of demo eggs available in all sizes, but, we won't be able to post the prices until sometime next mont…
  • piney said: Egret, I booked my tickets, I will need some info about lodging, eggs, and other things later. Thanks see everyone in May.    You don't need to bring your own eggs to cook on. They'll be provided. Go to our main eggfest web…
  • piney said: Egret, I sent you a message about the Eggfest. Thanks Piney Check your need to get your cook's tickets VERY soon.......there's just a few left!
  • That's great, Darian. Looking forward to seeing y'all again! I hope you don't have any hurdles to cross this year like you did last time!! 
  • theyolksonyou said: Do you have info on nearby accommodations, any fest related rates? Sure enough.......Lake Chatuge Lodge is a stone's throw from the eggfest, and they're giving a special rate for a two night stay. Here's the link: h…
  • cfox said: how would this recipe work using the glaze, as well as adding the pineapples around the ham ? Never tried it with the pineapple rounds, but, it should be good!!!
