    Anyone know if the Ceramic Grill Store people will be there? I need to get a woo
    Large and a MM
  • I'm not sure if the CGS people will be there, but I know for a fact they will have their products. 
  • Is anyone going to the meet and greet Friday night? I'm pretty pumped to meet Jess Pryles and get a copy of her book.

    I'll be there now that SWMBO is about 90% recovered from her gall bladder removal adventure documented here: http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1212166/rolled-brisket-revisited-on-minimax/p1.
    I am going down to the Fairground site early tomorrow morning to help build the eggs, nests, and tables or whatever else the Wassi family needs doing. I'll be back down on Friday after SWMBO's doctor's appointment in the afternoon to help with whatever didn't get done the previous two days and will be staying for the meet and great. Doing this is my form of therapy after the long recovery/caregiving stint and as someone once said, "I'll be tired - but it's a good tired". Looking forward to meeting some of you eggheads on Saturday. I'll be the old, tuckered out guy with the camera taking pictures of people whose names I don't know and would love to get shots of you folks for the forum.

  • Awesome! sounds great. I'm looking forward to it this year.. Last year I had to leave early so I didn't get to truly experience it.

    I'm from Brevard so not too happy to see it move down south but I guess that's good for you more southern eggers. The Wassi family are good people for sure.

    @BugFreak72 - agree on both statements. Not familiar with Vero Beach/Wabasso area and had a hard time finding the Fair Grounds; missed the exit but got there at 10:30 shortly after the trucks arrived. Too tired to take photos of the eggs. Going back tomorrow to help again. Dang I'm tired.

    Boooo!   That’s too bad.  Are you hitting up Ga Mountain Eggfest again this year?  There were a lot of folks at Butt Blast talking very highly of that fest.

    Sorry to hear that @CigarCityEgger, hope you are over it soon. Was hoping to meet you.

    Yes!  I'll definitely be at the GA Mountain EggFest again this year, and I am looking forward to seeing my Butt Blast friends. :) 
    Are you thinking about heading to it?  

    It looks like I missed another amazing Butt Blast-- I'll make it one of these years!

    Took a couple pictures today after we finished building 132 Large, 35 XL's, and 3 XXL's for the cooks.  Don't know the count of the Mini Max's but if I remember right from last year there were quite a few.  
    Sorry about the picture quality, west sunlight was hard to avoid. Still more to do tomorrow before the meet and greet. Was a fun day.  Hope to see you among the 400 folks who bought meet and greet tickets. That right there just blows my mind.

    I made it out two years ago.  Unfortunately, not this year as April has been a busy month for us, wedding, birthdays and then the retail store picking up as the weather warms.  A quick get away sounds good, but should be from everything I think.......we'll see.   

    thanks for thinking about me.......

    Pictures from the "Meet and Greet" held in the air conditioned vendor area. People in line for Baked Brie featuring Unicoi Preserves, Wassi's Classic Steak Rubbed Prime Rib, Loaded Baked Potato Bar, Creamed Spinach, and a Summer Salad. 

    Some of the cooks for tomorrow's Eggfest cooked the food on eggs setup for tomorrow. I had the smoked brie with two kinds of preserves which was very good. The loaded potato bar held up the line for quite a while.
    Jess Pryles was signing books after I took this photo.

    This is the covered area where the cooking teams will be working. That stack in the middle is FOGO charcoal.
    The other stack is BGE charcoal.
    Restaurants including Meg O'Malley's Irish Pub will be cooking in this area.

    And finally, the Learning Center is in this area. I'll post the vendors pictures next.

    Vendors at the Eggfest: Wassi's of course; this is their stack of 50 MiniMax's.

    Challenger and the BGE bar stools.

    East Georgia Metals with various size grates.


    Shun.








    A beer wagon.

    And the tables and chairs from the Meet and Greet will be available when you want to sit in the AC.

    Thats all for now.
