My name is Eric, and I am a 32 year old living in Indianapolis, Indiana. I am an engineer by day, a closet Egghead on the nights and weekends. I got my Big Green Egg in 2009 as a house-warming gift from my loving parents (thanks again!) after moving across the country for work. Grilling on the Big Green Egg has been a very tasty journey, and one that I hope to continue for many years to come. I don’t claim to know everything about grilling, barbecuing, or the BGE in general but I’m going to try as learn as much as I can so I can share it here.
Why the Big Green Eggic?
I have been grilling on the Big Green Egg since 2009, and every time I had a question about the Egg I turned to the internet. The problem is that there is no “one-stop-shop” for information about the Big Green Egg. Where do I go for a review of an Eggcessory I have my eye on? What temperature do I smoke my brisket at? How do I bake a pizza? All of the answers are out there, yes, but they are spread out and sometimes difficult to find. I created the Big Green Eggic to be an online resource for all things Big Green Egg. I want this website to be the “one-stop-shop” for any and all Big Green Egg questions. Of course, I don’t know everything there is to know about the Big Green Egg. That’s why I need your help! The only way to build a true knowledge base is from the participation of all the Eggheads out there. So if you see something that doesn’t look right, an important topic that’s not covered, or a recipe that you can do better please let me know!
What the Heck is an Eggic?
Eggic is one of my family nicknames given to me by my little nephew, of all people. When he was young, he had some trouble with his “r’s” so every time he said “Eric” it sounded like “Eggic.” The name stuck, and when my parents gave me a Big Green Egg the “Big Green Eggic” was born.
