Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

It's a poor craftsman that blames his tools.

Not me anymore. Too much noise and cement, and too many people.
I really liked it when it was in their backyard.

I do understand what you mean tansu, I liked it when it was over by the airport behind the 57th Fighter Group restaurant.  It is something entirely different now, but I still like it, and will go and see the gang of folks that show up year after year.

We just finished our annual pilgrimage to Eggtoberfest 2012, it was enjoyable and different but somewhat the same.

here is a set of pictures from the two day event.  I edited hard.

I have just had confirmation that the 2013 Eggtoberfest will be held at Stone Mountain Park, while I liked Atlanta Motor Speedway for its size it was a bit too large and industrial for my tastes, I am looking forward to moving it back toward town a bit.  Stone Mtn Park has all of the facilities that will make it a great event this year as in past years.

Fookin A !
Have you ever listened to someone for a while and wondered, who ties your shoelaces?

You can't do epic shit with basic people.

Beer is why I get up every afternoon.

Tried to buy them, it's forcing me to Canada on the payment screen.  I sent them an email, we'll see what they say.

It is this weekend at Stone Mtn. and I "think" the tickets are sold out.   

This is NOT a competition, it is a show and tell of all of the things that you can cook well on a Big Green Egg (and in some ways/marginally on other ceramic cookers).  IMO.

What it is, is a SUPERTASTING..   For about $35.00..   


Don't miss it next year (hoping Saturday to go well at Stone Mtn. Park)

Mike, were you there? I stopped by Chef and the Fat Man and they said they hadn't seen you.  It was a really good time, definitely going next year if I can swing it........

I was at Pine Street Market for a butchering class until noon, I sped home and picked up Deanne and we got there about 1:30.  There is a LOT to be said about getting to this event early, the crowd had eaten most folks out of food, and they did run out of beer around 2:45.  That said it STILL is a great event and having been to two venue changes in the past for Eggtoberfest they always seem to fill in the gaps in the second year.  We did get a chance to sit with Kevin and the Krewe of Chef and the Fatman for a bit, but we had a bunch of folks to see that we only see once a year so we were on the move.  I loved it that the Happy Belly truck was on hand with free food, and I also want to praise the folks from Le Cordon Bleu for providing a large tent with fairly fast moving lines feeding people.  I think the $40.00 fee is way reasonable if you get there early and do the walk among the many, many tents and venues.  I understand that a team from every state was there plus teams from 8-10 foreign countries. 

While I understand that some folks were disappointed, it continues to be a favorite event of mine/ours and the switch to Stone Mountain Park was a terrific move.
