Tonight, John Smoltz will have his number retired and he’ll be inducted into the Atlanta Braves Hall of Fame at Turner Field. He might just celebrate the weekend’s festivities on his Big Green Egg.

From Big Green Egg’s website:

The world’s best athletes demand the ultimate equipment to stay on top. That’s why John Smoltz cooks on the Big Green Egg, which stands alone as the most versatile outdoor cooking device on the market today.

Seems like all you have to do is turn on the radio in Atlanta and you’ll hear a radio talent talk about their Big Green Egg. I think I may compile a list of celebrity Egg owners. The fact is that anyone who owns a Big Green Egg is a celebrity in their own neighborhood. As soon as you fire one up, you’re likely to have people come over and introduce themselves to you as the neighbor around the corner.

Our Duluth location is the closest Big Green Egg Dealer to Sugarloaf Country Club in Duluth and is one of the closest to St. Ives and Country Club of the South in John’s Creek. We have a lot of celebrities/personalities/athletes who come in to buy their Big Green Egg and Eggcessories from us, but it doesn’t matter who you are. You will be treated like a celebrity by our sales folks. We’re happy to answer any question and educate you fully on the different products we sell.

By the way, Smoltzy happens to be a big supporter of another brand that we sell. Former Atlanta Brave Ryan Klesko and John Smoltz are spokespersons for Scag Mowers.

Maybe we should just create a time card for John. He could come in on Saturdays and help out on the Hardware side or on the Outdoor Power Equipment side of our business.

Congrats John! We’re happy for you. You’ve been a fixture in Atlanta for a LONG time and we love local.
