NewEGGlandfest VIII - 2015

First Image
This marked my third year attending NewEGGlandfest VIII which is a sponsored by Tarantin Industries the New England Big Green Egg Distributor. The event was similar in many ways to the last two years events, which was to be expected. This year there was a surprising difference too, no celebrity chef demos. I think this was a result of last years event drawing about 1/3 less cooks than the 2013 event. Attendance seemed to be down too, but I heard they pretty much sold all of the Tasters tickets they had. I wrote a blog about this event in 2013 & 2014, and for this blog anyplace where things remained the same, like the location information, I will reuse the text from last year’s entry and italicize it. Except where noted by the italics, this blog entry will describe my impressions of the 2015 event specifically, including the similarities and differences to last year. Read More...

Dealer Eggfests

First Image
One aspect of Big Green Egg ownership I never thought about was the social aspect. By that I specifically mean Eggfests, where old, new and potential EggHeads gather to discuss the Egg and enjoy some great food cooked by fellow Eggheads. They range in size from national such as the EGGtoberfest, held every October in Atlanta. This is the BIG one and it draws around 4,000 EggHeads from around the US, North America and other parts of the world. Then there are regional Eggfests such as NewEGGlandfest which draws hundreds of people from around New England. I have attended and written blogs about both these Eggfests. This time around I am going to write about the local Eggfests run by individual Big Green Egg dealers that draw maybe 100 people. Specifically I am going to write about the one I just attended held by my dealer Oasis Hot Tub & Sauna in Nashua, NH. They call it their Customer Appreciation Day. Many of the other Big Green Egg dealers in this area have their own version of this event. I would imagine dealers all over the US have similar events. Read More...
