It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

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

  • YEEESSSSSS!! Got it! Put image up on Photobucket and there you have it.......thank all of you for taking your time to offer your help. I really do appreciate it!
  • I tried the "Signature Settings" deal and, when I delete the current pic and try to insert another one it wants a "http:" number and I don't have one. Why don't one of you try to put a pic in yours and see if you can do it? You can always remove it.…
  • EggObsessed said: Hey Egret, click on your handle name under "My Profile" on the right, then click on "Edit Profile". You can then click on "Change My Picture" on the left.  Hope this helps!  Thanks again for all your hard work in putting on …
  • Jeremiah said: Those are great pics! Really wanted to make it but again was foiled. The bloomin onion looked particularly good, does anyone have a recipe for that?? The recipes will be posted about June 1st, or sooner, on our web site as…
  • Wonderful presentation, Kristi! Love it. Thank you so much for coming to the fest and being the "official" photographer! I knew you would do a spectacular job........but, you did even better than that!! :-*
  • Thanks for posting these, John. It was our pleasure to meet you and Nancy. Good luck with your competition this year with Smitty's Smoke Patrol!
  • 9:00 AM for the tasters.................
  • $500 is too much for a small that was a floor model if that's all you get. You can do better than that at an eggfest. As far as the performance of the small, I've always had problems getting it up to temperature. There are some that don't and I've n…
  • Double Bogey said: I wonder how that "Egret" fellow got approved with his track record I wonder, too, Larry!! ) It's a good thing they're not too particular or we'd both be elsewhere!
  • Little Steven said: The other forum was not associated directly with BGE Corp although they did contribute the operating costs (I am told). When the new ownership came in they decided to open this forum. They were supposed to have retained th…
  • No, it's not too late! Give them a call tomorrow and they'll be happy to help you! I look forward to seeing you.......please look me up and introduce yourself!
  • SmokeyPitt said: That is pretty cool @Egret.  Is he located in Roswell, GA?  Yes, I think he does. He's going to be at the GA Mt. Eggfest as a vendor........
  • Michael Chance makes a 2 pizza rig called "The Roswell Rig". They're very reasonable, too. Check it out:
  • plumbfir01 said: Egret, I mean no disrespect but it appears the price on the mini is a bit much or is it just me? I really want to come and really would like to add a mini but at that price i can get it a bit cheaper at a local dealer (or sem…
  • Red Eye is absolute "killer" on ABTs and Fatties. I wouldn't use anything else!
  • I'm pretty confident I can arrange for someone in the Atlanta area to bring one home for you if you can't make it. We've done it several times in the past. Email me at wjhall at windstream dot net
  • Ospreydog said: I was wondering about taster tickets at eggfest, do they sell out, only a limited number or would I be ok to just buy them at the gate? We have our campers at the fairgrounds for the summer so we will be there camping anyway s…
  • Never tried one that way, but, I'll bet it would be good........Mickey cooks his without any addition of any kind!
  • Tsk, tsk, tsk............That was really, really lame Kristi!! I was ready to take you off my list for all of eternity! Now........back to luvin' you guys again!!  ) )
  • Welcome! Come to an eggfest near you some time for the time of your life!!
  • Wow, Kelley, that chili sounds amazing! I gotta try that. 
  • Little Steven said: Horrible news today about a family that ran a great restaurant up the road from our office. They were Guyanese and really nice people. We were there at least once a week. Get yer Carbon Monoxide alarms plugged in folks! h…

  • That's discouraged in the fairgrounds..........that's not an eggfest policy, by the way, but a rule the GA Mt. Fair has in place. Sorry..........
  • We have a bit of misinformation on the web site regarding the demo eggs. The egg nest is provided as part of the package and all accessories will be offered at 15% discount. Will get it changed soon......
  • Plate setters aren't provided.  :( All those used plate setters would be a real problem.......however, I am thinking about making those an optional part of the package next year since a number of people have asked. 
  • The distributor had instituted a minimum price policy that all the dealers have to follow. We had to negotiate these prices which caused us to be very late getting started. I can refund your cook's fees, or if you have a couple of friends or family …

  • jimi1234 said: Hi all, I have an old fashioned skin on ham and I plan on following Egret's ham recipe. Should I remove the skin and trim the fat or should I leave the skin on and score it?  Thanks! I would score it fairly deep........
  • Austin Egghead said: HAd pretty good discount at Georgia last year.  May get one there, if they are one of the vendors. They'll be here, Joan.......and, with a special edition Smokeware cap!!
