  • Re: BGE Pizza Stone too thick?

    I do pizza with the palesetter legs up and the stone on the grid. If I were to do them with the legs facing down, I would use a spacer as you have done between the stone and the platesetter.


  • Re: Eggtoberfest 2013

    Here is some info I have gathered from previous years & posts. I've tweaked it a little. It will benefit the newbs who have not been to an Eggtoberfest or an Eggfest;

    1.Location: Stone Mountain  is about 30 minutes east of Atlanta. 

    2.Timing: The ticket says Eggtoberfest is on Saturday is from 9-5.  It starts at 9.  The eggs all get shut down at 3, so that they are cool enough to take home at 5/5:30 for the people who purchase a demo.  From my experience, if you bought a demo, get in line @ 3. There’s probably 200 other people who are picking one up too.

    3.Swag: After you pick up your badge, you pick up your swag bag. Pick up your swag up and return it to the car(make sure to grab your drink tickets first).  Your badge gives you in and out privileges.

    4.Drink tickets: You get 5 tickets with admission.  Any drink (water, soft drink or beer) costs one ticket.  Lots of people bring their own drinks(no bottles). You can have a cooler.

    5.Demonstrations: There will be scheduled demonstrations – take advantage of these.

    6.The cooks: This was the best part!  There were 5 or 6 lanes of cooks and the cooks were generally in stations of several people.  There is 1 BGE per 2 people from which the cooks work .  Many of the stations have signs in front of them that said the dishes they were serving and the general times they expected to serve each dish.  Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert; each spaced apart by about an hour or 2.

    7.Merchandise: There is a “store” where you could buy BGE, Eggsessories and Dizzy Pig products. Also a good idea to return items to your car, so you don't have to carry them around.

    8.The camping registration is linked on the page with the Eggtoberfest tickets, so you can camp @ Stone Mountain..

    9. Make sure to bring a chair, you’ll get tired from all the walking and will need a place to rest.

  • Re: Stand/support for BGE at a competition cook?

    Nest and Nest Handler are going to be your cheapest options, IMO. Good Luck.

  • Re: Ga Mtn Eggfest

    You'll need to buy tickets to go or you can buy a demo egg and get a free ticket.

    It's a lot of fun, people will be cooking, there will be demonstrations, different vendors I'm sure. It's a good time and hang with fellow eggheads. Ask questions if you have any, get ideas on different foods to cook. Be entertained by the North Georgia Eggers,
