Here is a full menu with recipes and how to videos for a sensation Christmas dinner cooked entirely on the Big Green Egg.
Let’s face it folks, it is only 9 days until Christmas and if you are thinking of ordering an Egg-cessory for the Big Green Egg or ordering one of the custom tables now is the time to act.
Once you try this brined turkey, you’ll agree that nothing does a better job of roasting meats than the EGG. The turkey has a subtle smoky flavor and is moist and succulent, but if you prefer a bolder smoky flavor, add more smoking wood chips in increments during cooking. This turkey would be great for holidays, and you can use the leftovers to make wonderful sandwiches. Recipe courtesy of Kevin Rathbun.

Everyone wants their pool water to sparkle — but this float takes poolside shimmer to the next level.
#FLOATY, a supplier of novelty pool floats, is offering a stunning (pun intended) unicorn-shaped pool float encrusted with more than 10,000 hand-placed Swarovski crystals in a rainbow of 14 colors. As #FLOATY social media manger and Rebecca Hsu told Observer, an online news and culture site, only one will be sold, making it the most exclusive pool float in the world.
As of press time, the unicorn float is still available for $6,000. (Though likely not for long; according to Hsu, #FLOATY has seen about a dozen serious inquiries.)
The crystal-studded inflatable isn’t the first pool float to make the news. Last summer, Taylor Swift made waves (again, pun intended) with her oversized swan float. As AQUA previously reported, an Instagram post shared by the star was the catalyst for a record sales season for Swimline Corporation. Since then, the trend hasn’t deflated, as oversized flamingos, black swans and pizza slices continue to take over the Instagram accounts of celebrities and wannabe stars alike.

A slice of lemon can bring new life to a boring glass of tap water when a flavor boost is in order. Not only that, but lemon can benefit your health too. It’s a wonderful detoxifier than can aid in digestion – a great side benefit when you indulge a little too much during a meal. In addition, the vitamin C can help boost your immune system and regular use can help support your weight loss goals.
Don’t assume your guests have a lot of hot tub experience. Give them some help and be up front about your hot tubbing policies:
We all dream of getting away from it all, but not all vacation get-a-ways are without their own level of stress:

1.) What can a hot tub do for you?
In today’s work culture we seem to have put a high value on the person that works 14 hour days; eats at their desk; takes work home with them; is constantly connected to work by phone and internet – even on off hours and weekends; doesn’t take vacation…you get the picture. We think of these people as hard working and productive, but are they really? Don’t get me wrong, they are working hard but may not be very productive. Many studies have shown that the person who gets good sleep, relaxes and removes themselves from the work environment regularly is more productive. They are also in a better mood making it easier to work within a team setting, more creative, and a more efficient problem solver. Generally nicer to be around; that’s got to be worth something, right? Nicer work environment?
