    Still in the early stages so don't know exactly what our cooks will be cooking. We hope to have a few competition teams and then past Egg buyers will be there cooking as well. As far as instruction, our rep, Jeff Raymond, will be there cooking, He is a wealth of information. He will not hold a cooking class, but he will be there cooking and to answer any questions you may have.

    We will have a XXL Grill on display as well. I would say it is worth the trip just to see this monster! Also if anyone else is interested in Demo Eggs, there are limited supplies available.

    Will the XXL be for sale or is your wholesaler just letting you borrow it?

    Right around $4,500 which includes the Grill, Nest and Plate Setter. I can't wait to actually see this thing in person. The Plate Setter alone has to be the size of a small round card table!

    I do competition cooks but I am more just a Hobbie st who cooks for the nebo hood too.

    I also like the option when I need multiple temps I have all bases covered.

    I forgot to mention that this EggFest is also very close to St. Louis. We are about 10 minutes from the JB Bridge!


    Also, one of our employees plays in a pretty good band. Was wondering your guys thoughts about having a band play? I initially thought it would be a good idea, but now I am thinking it will take the attention away from the event.

  • I will be there! I think the band would be a nice addition. It would be another attraction to bring people in to see the BGE event. Plus it is always nice to cook to a good soundtrack!

    The elusive mini-max may even be there by then.

    I hope so. Our distributor is telling us they are getting them in October. So I don't expect to see one until November.

    I see you will have large eggs for demo and sale, any other sizes?

    For a teaser here's the tiny guts of it...note the relative size referenced by that ball point pen.

    That picture was taken by a dealer who saw it in April at the show out West when it was announced.

  • Will there be an official registration for cooks, or will you just accept as many that arrive that day? Will there be a cost to enter?

    There is no official registration for cooks. But we do encourage anyone who is interested in cooking to contact us so we can get a gauge on how many cooks will be there and how many Demo Eggs will be available. We will have early check-in the day of the EggFest for cooks. Cooks get in free but anyone else it is $10 admission fee or $25 for a family. We are donating all the proceeds to a local charity.
