Hi, Good ole Grilldog here. I'll be one of the instructors at Egg University for this years Egg Fest, this Saturday at the Iguana Grill on rr620. I'm really excited, H.E.B. "PLUS"on 620 and Anderson Mill Rd is providing the food for the Egg University! I understand the courses are going to be, Egg 101 (of Course), I'll be teaching Pork Tenderloin and Pizza (Mandola's in Bee Cave is providing the dough since H.E.B. doesn't carry dough!). Also they'll be a Tri Tip Class and a Chicken Tender Skewers class. I'm drooling already.

Looking forward to Saturday and hope to see a lot of folks there.

Stop by and say howdie, you'll be glad you did!

    Have not seen a list. Will probably swing by BBO today and pick up some rub and try to get more info.
    Question Mickey, What size ice chest do you bring to a fest and how many items are you cooking? I am planning three items and wondering if I am over reaching.

    Thanks

    I don't think a list is posted I do know that we are expecting about 350-400 people there. Currently, I'm trying to recruit some assistants to help me during the class and at my lil site. I'm working with the folks at H.E.B. today to find out what they are going to give me to personally demo at the fest. I'm pretty excited that such a huge local (TEXAS) company is joining the fest this year as part of Team Grilldog! woof. I'm really looking forward to my Pizza Demo. Mandola's out in Bee Cave is providing the fresh dough and it's to die for. Plus, H.E.B. is providing me some toppings imported from Italy. The only reason they are not providing the dough is that they don't sell dough they just have premade crusts brought in and I wanted to demo how easy it is to use fresh dough on the egg. So see everyone on Saturday! woof woof.

    OH, I guess you can demo as much as you think you can handle.
  • The wife and I will be driving up from Houston Sat morning. We have been making alot of pizza with the prefab crusts so I'm stoked you're gonna be using dough in the class. What time will you be starting?

    I don't know the schedule yet. I know the classes are going to start around 10am. There's going to be 5 and they'll start on each hour, 10, 11, 12, 1 & 2. The first class is going to be Egg 101. Not sure how it's going to go after that. So for sure, no earlier then 11am. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    Hope that helps

    Looking forward to seeing everyone Saturday (or tomm night if you're going tot he cook's meeting).

    Joan, I have routinely done 3 items, including wings which can go a couple hours, so 3 should be a good target as long as they are not lengthy cooks. I bring a big a$$ cooler, but I'm a freak!
