Big Green Egg Tailgating Fun


I was given the opportunity to attend Tailgating on the EGG class at Big Green Egg Culinary Center, in partnership with CulinaryLocal and had an awesome time and left so full. Chef Amanda and Taylor greeted me with a smile and welcomed me to the class.

When you think of entertaining and cooking what do you usually think of? Ovens, stove top cooking and bbq grills, but it is time to expand your way of thinking when it comes to entertaining and cooking. I had a chance to learn it first hand by attending my first Big Green Egg class in Atlanta.

Prior to attending the class, I had no experience using or seeing a big green egg in person, by a friend of mine baked a pizza on it and I was suspicious until attending this class.




Bake, fry, grill and more on these cool devices, but I am not here to talk about that but about the amazing classes they have at the Big Green Egg Culinary Center. After getting lost trying to find the place I welcomed the beer, wine and other drink selections we were provided with.

Beware, after seeing the pictures below you will want to purchase one for yourself, and start making all of the delicious treats we were able to have during this class and everyone took food home with them.


Each of us had to share what experience if any at all we had with using a Big Green Egg. Me being a novice, I felt a little off, but I was relieved to find that the instructors Amanda and Taylor and the other assistants were very helpful and put me at ease.

There is a right way and a wrong way to open the grill. Who knew? Well the people who have purchased one of the eggs certainly know, but I was so glad that they shared tips throughout the class.

The class was hands on, so everyone had a chance to taste, mix and try the food as we went and that is like the best part to being in the kitchen right?



Chef Taylor shared about experience being a griller and big green egg user since the age of 10, she had a wealth of knowledge just in case you want to take part in a championship grilling competition. The ribs should bend but the bones should not come out of the meat (see pic below), if the bones come out then you instantly lost the competition. I will not find myself in a pro competition, but hey you never know I may change my mind and this knowledge may come in handy.





Upcoming class, Big Green Egg Basics, is perfect for people like me with little to no experience on the Big Green Egg and others to come. For more information, check out all of the classes on

What is the best dish you have created on the Big Green Egg and if you haven’t what is the dish you are most looking forward to trying one day on the Big Green Egg?

    Cool! I had no idea this product even existed! What a cute (and apt) name! I'm a big griller, but I kind of wish I was - meat tastes so much better when it's smoked and grilled!
