    Hate that I was late getting up there..... made it in time to pick up a demo egg.  Now I'm hungry!

    We made it in time to taste 1 dish and the rain but still enjoyed ourselves. Everyone was very kind and informative. We picked up a large demo egg. It was nice meeting ppl and them telling me to give them a call if I needed help with anything! Great community here ;)

    Those are great pics! Really wanted to make it but again was foiled. The bloomin onion looked particularly good, does anyone have a recipe for that??

    Very nice job on the pics and write up Kristi! You must have been running all over as you got pics of a lot of people and food that I didn't even see (or perhaps I was too stuffed to eat anymore). It was nice to meet you & John.

    I would have been afraid to point a camera at @Dyal_SC. He'd probably break it. Great pics and thanks for sharing them. YOu gonna make it to any Texas fests next year?

    It was my first Eggfest. Such a great time. Nice people, beautiful scenery and great food. Everyone was so informative and willing to share little tips, tricks and recipes. Will definitely become an annual tradition.

    Thanks! I always look forward to your eggfest wrap ups. Thanks for sharing.

    Question what is the meat that was used for this? This is totally awesome:

    @terry_b‌ - the meat on the sword skewers is known by a few names, Top Sirloin Cap, Rump Cap, or Picanha as the Brazilians refer to it. If you have a butcher with access to a NAMPs (National Association of Meat Purveyors) guide or IMPS (institutional Meat Purchase Specifications) guide the cut is identified as #184D. You can download the IMPS guide here: http://www.chefs-resources.com/files/Meat-Buyers-Guide-PDF/IMPS Beef Guide.pdf

    Good luck finding it in our neck of the woods. I've been searching for years in California and can only seem to find it at Restaurant Depot in a case (about 50 lbs worth). Someone in GA told me he gets it from a Mexican carniceria. Misu, the gentleman cooking it at the fest, found some at his Costco.

    I buy this cut in South Florida at Restaurant Depot and they call it culottes. Never had to buy a full case because they generally sell it in smaller quantities at the Riviera Beach location.

    We enjoyed Misu's picanha so much that I ordered the swords/skewers off of Amazon and special ordered a top sirloin cap from the butcher at HEB.  Going to give it a go on Saturday with another one of our cooking buds who FINALLY caved in to our pressure to get a BGE.

    Interested in the picanha a well. What rub is applied to the meat just salt or other spices as well?


    Thanks
