I hear from Dealers, later in the Summer.
My guess...this Fall.
This is , (from first blush)....a fund raiser, (which is ok!!)..... but it's NOT AN EGGFEST!!
Since 2004...Iv'e probably attended 25 or 30 Fests...some big, (almost like a festival)... some small, (more like a big family reunion)...and other's in-between.
Yes...they're all different,(with different set ups...venues...and monetary logistics for cooks and sponsors to consider)....and yes, (even when you cook and pay NO fee to attend)...it's not cheap to travel to and from....attend, provide food and supplies... and everything else that goes with it.
But to pay 100 bucks to cook...(and I am assuming provide your own food to the attendees)...I'm calling "Bullschiiiiit" on that...lol!! ?
Doesn't' sound like any Fest I've ever cooked at...or would want to attend.
More than anything...Fests are about meeting other Eggers...and enjoying the experience of cooking on an Egg! All the while... passing along your experience and knowledge to Newbies or potential new Egg owners to help grow the culture, and support your local Egg Retailer. Truth is...they are really hard to describe...until you attend one, cook at one....and then, "you get it"...and you're hooked!!
I have seen countless folks attend their first true "EggFest...and come on this, or the "Original Egg Forum"...and say exactly that... for years now!!
Nothing wrong with having/attending a fundraiser...(and this one at the surface sounds like a worthy cause)!!
BUT IT"S NOT AN EGGFEST!
I assume you're stopping @ Mueller's in Taylor!
I'd call ahead...and see what time they're usually running out of whatever you're going for, so you're there while there is still some "there" there....(he says..."speaking from experience")...lol!!
During the week they're open till 6...but I'd be there well...well ahead of that...!!
It's a real slice of Texas "Americana"...for sure!
No Wally Worlds there?
