    I'm a newbie, I'm going for sure.  I need to learn some tricks/secrets.

    Still figuring out what to cook - I'm following recipes more than creating my own goodness right now.  
    It's a 5 hour event, so how do you do low-and-slow?  Do they allow cooks to arrive earlier?

    We are going. doing Chorizo on skewers for the masses. Low and Slow is tough to do at Eggfest, you might to consider a faster cook.  See you there.

    sumoconnell : first eggfest here. If you check their site they talk about when\where cooks should show up. 

    VI, I'll be glad to meet you, sad I won't see you perform on that wok.

    What's up with that? Can't bring your own drinks? That's like going to Strurgis and them making you ride their Vespas.

    Probably has something to due with the venue's liquor license.

    I bet it's their way of making more money.  They have a bar and sell drinks to the crowd.

    What if I need enough rum to free Cuba in order to cook my meal? Can I bring that?

    Put it in a Gatorade bottle and no one will know the difference.

    I just signed up as a COOK at the Eggfest.  I figured to be tasters would cost $60.  To be cooks, it's free + a $50 gift certificate to HEB.  That's a $110 swing.  I'll get Mickey to buy my food and tell him I'll pay him back.

    Us Chickens are in. We're cooking but not sure what.  One thing on the menu will be the Magnum Loads.  Somewhere there has to be a great recipe for "chicken" we can do but nothing appeals to me except Little Steven's chicken satay and I won't attempt that! 

    Gary, glad you are cooking plus don't forget you get a couple of free beers :-)

    Judy,

    Like your worser half, I am a rum drinker.  Beer is for adding to the beans for Frijoles a la Charra. I look forward to seeing you and Leroy in Austin.
