Notes

These recipes performed at Big Green Egg headquarters in Tucker, Georgia. The place was jumping. Chef Fred brought his "A" game with some good recipes, Karen did the technical stuff, Linda Genovese kept us on time. Mike Stock tried to help as much as possible running two Big Green Eggs in the cold outside and took a few pictures. Kevin did a great show, with many introductions and a good guest as well Emily Robinson (Ultra-Foodie) was there talking about her latest restaurant find (Bite in Alpharetta).
