Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

i have been egging for about 3-4 months now and there is going to be an eggfest in plano tx pretty soon; november 3 to be exact.
what does one do at an eggfest?  i think you have to pay to attend, what does paid entry to an eggfest get you?  sampling of the cooked food?

thanks

    I attended a Eggfest in June and it cost $40 to attend, there was more food to sample than that and when you came in you received a shopping bag with some rubs, tee-shirt, a real nice nozzle for the garden hose, some kind of solar powered led light for the garden and some other stuff I don't remember now probably another $40 worth. Even without that we had a great time and learned a few things and met some nice people. I would go again. Gerhard

    jrf316 Plano charges $10 for non-cooks and zero if you cook. Come March 16th at Salado we do not have any charge to tasters or cooks. The Texas Fest I think charges $25 and no-charge for cooks. You will get your money out of any fest you go to. You will learn more in the 4 to 6 hours than you can learn in a year on your own. What I am saying, your money is well spent.

    If you cook you will  spend much more in the product you cook and give away. My advice is for your first fest go and just see what all is going on w/o cooking.

    Hi, I'm the one putting on the Eggfest in Plano. I take it you would be coming as a guest. Well, we'll have tastings all day, plus raffle tickets are included in your registration fee. Some fests donate to charities, hence the fee, others do not. If you go to our site you will be able to get more details. You may also email me at hornhonk@verizon.net.

    Missed this year but they do a good job there. I am still of the opinion that an eggfest should include two nights of drunken debauchery and pre and after parties

    We had a good time even thought there were periods of rain, we made a weekend of it by staying at the Harbour Castle.  I said to Cherie that it looked to be an easy walk from the hotel, it turned out to be quite a hike, oh well just gave us more of an appetite.

    I was there last year. Some great cooks. I still don't think they should be able to call it a fest if it's only a day thing

    I will be at salado. I will also be the most hammered.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Plano has a meet and greet Friday night at the American Legion. We will also have an after party at the hotel. We'll have eggs going and booze flowing! You can just crawl to your room.
