It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • I've got two cooks tickets - my 17 year old will be my sous chef again.  Haven't made a final decision on lodging, but I was a tent camper last year and will probably do it again this time.
  • Purdue Boilermakers - which usually means that by mid-September I'm looking forward to basketball season. Oh yeah - my Graduate School (Butler Bulldogs) aren't too shabby in March either.
  • As an avid homebrewer let me say I'm jealous as hell. Maybe next year I'll make the trek to Colorado.
  • Kim, You need to edit your thread title. You didn't cook "stuff". In my early backpacking days in the mid-70's I ate a lot of freeze dried crap in the wilds. You've raised the bar considerably in terms of what's possible when removed from civi…
  • Ironic - I made Chris Lilly's cherry glazed pork tenderloin marinaded in Cherry Coke for Mother's Day today. Good stuff. :woohoo:
  • Great pics Kim. Sorry I missed the event. Today I took my daughter to an all-day introduction to Sewanee - University of the South on Monteagle in Tennessee. We really enjoyed our day; however I missed another event nearby: The National Cornbread …
  • At Eggtoberfest 2008 I cooked a Tandoori boneless leg of lamb that was very tasty. If you like Indian spices I could look this one up for you. It involved rubbing the leg with yogurt after applying a rub that had about every "C" spice you can thin…
  • Just to add to the conversation, here's my contribution:

  • +1 to the Kindle app on the iPad. I find it a very acceptable reader, and can use the iPad for so much more.
  • Roudy and daughter have arrived at the Swan and Dolphin resort for a lil Disney action tomorrow before heading over to Melbourne tomorrow night. Can't wait for Saturday :woohoo: :woohoo:
  • Heading out for an eight hour road trip to Orlando. Hitting Melbourne Thursday night. Can't wait!
  • The wife and older daughter are going on a cruise with the high school orchestra on Monday, so I'm driving down with my 15 year old daughter on Wednesday. Looking forward to cookin eatin and meeting new and old friends.
  • It's not exactly a restaurant, but if you're ever in Indianapolis check out Cheff JJ's http://www.chefjjs.com/ He does regular cooking "events" all on the BGE. The venue is beautiful, the food outstanding. I held a private party there and would…
  • Chef JJ's location is awesome. I hosted a private party there about 18 months ago and the food and ambiance are the best. Trying to boondoggle a business trip back to Indy so I can cook for this event. :whistle: To TNT54: Feast of the Hunter's M…
  • Great lookin sammich, and I can see why it gave Buford T indigestion. My only regret about the movie was recently showing it to my 15 year old daughter (the one with blue streaks in her hair). Now she's fixated on me buying a late 70's Trans Am …
  • Looking forward to my first Sunshine Eggfest, cooking with my 15 year old daughter. My wife and 17 year old will be cruising to Mexico that week so I decided to drive down to Melborne, cook, eat, and drink myself into a stupor. My youngest daughter …
  • +1 to Celebration Ale. I have a six pack in my fridge right now. Bell's Hopslam is my second favorite double IPA ever. Look for it.
  • If you haven't had Russian River Brewery's Pliny the Elder you really haven't had a BEER. My second choice is Bell's Hopslam. It's a seasonal that's shipping tomorrow, and I can't wait for it.
  • Picking up big rocks? Heck my daughter and I handled a pretty big one ourselves.
    in Woosday!! Comment by Roudy January 2011
  • Had a lot of great days in 2010, but my best was winter camping in the Red River Gorge in February where we had lots of snow, great food and strong drink. Here was my mango shrimp being cooked on an improvised grill topper over BGE hardwood lump. …
  • Lamb loin chops, lamb shoulder chops, heck any cut of lamb you can think of.
  • Hmm - this event overlaps Spring Break for my two teenage daughters. Since one daughter and her Mom are going on a school orchestra sponsored cruise to Mexico I think the only appropriate response is for me to bring my other daughter for some cooki…
  • Love me some lamb. Costco usually has that cut at a good price. I cooked some last week, the only difference being that I used guava wood for smoke.
  • Great photo. When my oldest daughter was about two she did something similar and said to me: "daddy - that was scary fun!" Needless to say she's turned out to be an amusement park junkie. Can't stay away from the scary fun stuff. :laugh:
  • I used to live in Lilburn and frequented the Tucker location. Mr. Wilkes used to be behind the counter - quite a Southern gentleman. I assume he's no longer living. On one trip 15 years ago my wife and I had him serving us. As we departed the stor…
  • If Mad Max can prepare a tongue and testicle sandwich at Waldorf I think it's fair to say there are no restrictions on what you can cook. :laugh:
  • Max is the man indeed. His recipe is straightforward and I've never felt the need to call the "hotline". For those who haven't made the MM Turkey - go for it. You'll be icing the breasts for evermore...
  • Ben - You got your dates messed up. The NCAA Men's basketball finals in Houston aren't until April 2-4, 2011. My one alma mater (Butler) was one shot away from winning it all last year. I'm hoping my other alma mater fares better this year B…
  • The size of the venue kept the large number of attendees not turn into a crush (other than the line for the beer). We'll also really appreciate the site when we have our next rainy/wet 'Fest as we won't be cooking in mud. There is more fine tuning r…
  • Kim - great photos. It was great cookin and hangin with the N Georgia Eggers. I brought my $900 Nikon and only took one or two photos. Glad someone else was documenting the event. While there were a few glitches I also liked the new venue. No claus…
