Any idea how we get more info on this eggfest? When you click on the link, it just takes you to the BBQ Island website and I can't seem to find a link there.


  • agreed, ran into same problem...want to go to my first eggfest
  • Hi Guys:
    The eggfest is going to be held on the Feb 15 in the parking lot of the bbq islands in tempe right by the ikea off of warner and the 10
    These guys really want it to work and they are going above and beyond to do great customer service and want to be the egg dealer here in phoenix
    They also carry the dizzy pig line of rubs
    Gotta love that new one called pineapple head

    They are doing it on a Monday? I know govt employees have off, but it is going to be tough for a lot of us to make it. I'll have to take a PTO day.
