Time to start another round of you Might Be An Egghead If.[p]This a previous version from Prof Dan posted on April 16, 2002.[p]...Your new idea of a dream date involves a supermodel (or you ladies take your pick), an Egg and a spatchcocked chicken. (A nod toward Bloom County where the ideal date for Opus was Katherine Sulllivan and pudding.)[p]
...You can even SAY spatchcocked chicken and not giggle. 8-)[p]
...Your signifigent other doesn't object to the cost of all the new toys you're buying because she/he likes the results.[p]
...Your idea of an ideal Thursday afternoon is mucking out the Egg in anticipation of the weekend.[p]
...The folks at the local grocery store meat counter "Know your name..."[p]
...You have a perfect justification in buying a digital camera and it's NOT to take pictures of your family.[p]
...Even the squirrels have stopped eating nuts in your backyard.[p]
...You claim the Egg as a Dependent on your tax forms.[p]If anybody has some new ones lets hear them.

    You might me an egg head if:[p]When you repaint your house you try to find a shade of paint that compliments the green.[p]When someone asks if you want your egg scrambled, a tear comes to the corner of your eye.[p]If you light it up and throw on some hickory just for the aroma in the yard.[p]If you have a photo album dedicated just to the egg.[p]After a snow storm you shovel off the egg before the sidewalk.[p]

    You name your cooker something like Lisa Marie.
    You start collecting pizza recipes.
    You don't mind being called an "egghead".

    Good luck up in Mt. Vernon, Doug. We'll be givin' 'em hell in Tryon![p]Jim
  • StubbyQ, Your vacation is built around the eggfest.[p]When your pantry looks like a spice shelf at the grocery store.[p]When you are already feeding thoughts into spouses brain about why you NEED the new XL BGE.

    StubbyQ,[p]Your family overhears you talking to your Egg, muttering "Way to go! Good temp control! Keep it up!"

    StubbyQ,[p]Even your friends use the word "egg" as a verb (referring to cooking, not vandalism)
  • Your own kids call you a CULT member!!!!

    You know you're an egghead when: the guy next to you at a bbq competition has 4 eggs lined up and you think he's perfectly normal.[p]Good luck in Tryon next weekend Jim.

    You overhear co-workers discussing a fine butt at the water cooler and you think first of pork shoulder.

    Sorry to get this all started again. I saw your posts from last time you posted this and thought this might be fun once more. So far it has been.

    <p />StubbyQ,
    If your decks look like this and you still have one more in the garage.

  • StubbyQ,
    You Might Be An Egghead If you have 5 different ways to light the coals in your Egg and you use them all. ( Green Jell, Electric lighter, Fire cubes, Mapp Gas Torch, and Lighter Chimney.)[p]Louisiana Redneck

  • StubbyQ,[p]You might be an Egghead if you have five 20 pound bags of lump charcoal in the shed just in case you might run out.[p]Louisiana Redneck

    StubbyQ,[p]One of your browser favorites in the food folder is "The Naked Whiz"[p]You have a browser favorite listed as "The Naked Whiz," and you go there regular for superior information, great pictures, humor....and it doesn't matter if the kids sneak up behind you.
  • StubbyQ,
    If going out to eat seems like too much of a bother, but going to the meat market to buy meat, prepping it, getting a couple of side dishes together, firing up the BGE to cook all this stuff is no bother at all.

    when the dinner menu is 1 rack of ribs, 1 chicken, 1 2" porterhouse, and 6 beers, but your eating alone
