Events Testimonials - UK Egghead flies to Georgia for Eggtoberfest
George bought his Big Green Egg in June and has since become what is known in the trade as an “EGGhead” whose enthusiasm knows no bounds! Determined to see how the American’s do it, he flew over 4000 miles to the BGE headquarters in Atlanta GA for this years Eggtoberfest. He sent us this report….
Was it worth it?
Silly question it was beyond our dreams.
Having communicated on Egg forums we arranged to meet up and eyeball a few members the night before. Most had brought one if not two eggs to the site and an evening of eating and drinking commenced outside their motorhome / trailer / RV’s just like a UK caravan club rally with cooking as the theme. Tremendous bunch of people and the knowledge base overwhelmed me.
The people at the Eggtoberfest could not have been more friendly they welcomed us as though we were long time best friends. As the furthest travelled just for the event then the company , dealers and reps took care of us. Spent time with plenty of the celeb cooks and guests, The founder Ed Fisher and the company who make the the eggs in Mexico were extremely interesting as well.
On the main cook day there were 3200 viewers and 310 cooks There is not a hope in hell of seriously competing with this lot. The food was out of this world. Some of it I had never tasted or seen before. Back home in UK we automatically think of Brisket, Pork, Chicken Smoked, Grilled, Broiled etc but throw the rule book away in their cooking.
Visited the Factory ( mothership ) last day before leaving , never seen so many Eggs in one place and ready to ship worldwide. Another fantastic day with Fantastic people.
Will we go again.
