What's In Your Egg? (for Eggtoberfest)

We are about 8 weeks out from Eggtoberfest, so just curious—who is cooking and what is your potential menu lineup?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

For GaMtnFest we cooked ABT’s, Cuban Sandwiches with Mexican Street Corn, and Thin Crust Grilled Pizzas.

For Eggtoberfest, Cubans are out since no way to do lo/slo overnight on the Cuban Pork Shoulder, and no electricity for finishing them in sandwich press.  So, for right now the Smokin Tiger preliminary Eggtoberfest lineup is:

1)       ABT’s finished with raspberry chipotle pepper sauce

2)       Cast Iron Skillet Shrimp and Grits

3)      Variety of Thin Crust Grilled Pizzas.

 

Lookin forward to seeing what you will be cooking!

  • agriffin--one question--when you unplug it due to lid opening--what do you unplug-the power to the whole control unit?  or just unplug the fan cord from the control unit?

    was planing on pork shoulder but found out cook goes from 8am till 3pm so no low and slow pork so I think that im going to do several different types of beer can chicken like one with beer another with a wine herb mixture maybe another with a garlic herb butter mix  not exactly sure but I know for sure that it will be whole chickens they only need about 1 1/2 to 2 hours cooking time  and then I will be able to go out and about sampling other cooks food and chat and pick the chef's brains

  • @charles--you make us southern cooks sound like we are bringing TV dinners to the eggfest--LOL.  I think the problem is the event organizer is not set up to let anyone do overnight cooks--they need to fix this. 

     In contrast, the GaMtnFest in May does let you come in and start night before if you want to, so there I was able to smoke a pork shoulder overnight and then use fresh pulled pork for cuban sandwiches.  Definitely not a TV dinner.

  • I'll bet even a TV dinner would be good on an Egg. Just saying.

  • @SmokingTiger81 I agree 100% I was planning on doing a pork shoulder but time constraints will not allow that so I think I'm doing some beer can Chickens I should be able to do them in like 11/2 time

  • It all sounds so good!

    I hope everyone has so much fun at the Eggtoberfest. I wish I could be there...but maybe I'll be in a better position to attend next year...and by then, I'll have made friends here who I can meet in person! That's something to look forward to. :)

    I'm looking forward to reading about how it all goes. Good luck everyone and have the best time!

     Usually the Canadian & Danish Natl teams show up...Dr BBQ, Chris Cappel of Dizzy Pig & a few others should be there...
