  • Thank You GA Mt. Eggfest Cooks........

    Many thanks to the 110 cooks that came to the Georgia Mountain Eggfest and gave it their all! There was just shy of 2100 lucky tasters that came and sampled all those wonderful creations. You guys and gals really rock and no one left without getting more than their fill. You are the real stars of this show and we're very proud to host each and every one of you. That's asking a lot to feed that many hungry patrons, but, you never fail to impress! With almost a 20:1 taster to cook ratio facing you, you pulled it off without a hitch. My heartfelt thanks to you amazing eggheads for all you do for the GA Mt. Eggfest.........from your loyal friend, fellow egghead and humble servant........John (egret) Hall
  • Dizzy Pig Dazzles Again!!

    I tried the sample bag of the new "Happy Nancy" seasoning the Dizzy Pig Co. sent me yesterday and today. At first taste right out of the bag I wasn't sure about this new rub since it seemed a little bland when compared with the other DP line of rubs, but, when applied on your cook and going through the cooking process this rub really comes to "life"! Yesterday I marinated two chicken leg quarters in a vinaigrette for 24+ hours and applied the new rub liberally on the chicken right before cooking direct on my Big Green Egg. I also used it on a couple of "crash hot potatoes" and the results were pretty amazing! My wife even commented that this was the best chicken and crash potatoes I've ever done! I agreed! I didn't do pictures......sorry!
    Tonight I did stir-fry chicken breasts with veggies over rice. I wokked the chicken and veggies on the Big Green Egg and put in a liberal amount of the new rub in the veggies while they were cooking. After the mixture was all cooked and back together again I put in a mixture of soy sauce, orange juice, brown sugar, dry sherry and cornstarch. This was over-the-top delicious! I'll be first in line when this new rub hits the street! Very well done Dizzy Pig! 

    Sorry about the wrong sequence of the photos.......couldn't see how to rearrange them!
