The 17th Annual Eggtoberfest was held in Atlanta Georgia on October 11, 2014. The fest originated in 1998 as a way for Big Green Egg to say “Thank You” to loyal customers that regularly logged on to the Forum to chat and share recipes and experiences and found themselves becoming fast friends. The first year, about 100 Big Green Egg pioneers attended the cookout at the American Legion Hall in Atlanta, with 15 cooks firing up an EGG. Now the event has grown to a fun-filled weekend celebration where more than 200 EGGs are fired up by new and experienced EGGheads to feed the enthusiastic crowd of over 3000 people. This is a great event and a great way to introduce the wonders of the EGG to new BBQ enthusiasts. We have included a video link in this post for you to see for yourself.
