Road Trip to Cook at 2019 EGGtoberfest!

HotchHotch Posts: 3,462
Shelly and I will be cooking this year at the 2019 EGGtoberfest.
Our Big Green Egg distributor here in Texas, Paragon Distributing, asked us if we would like cook at EGGtoberfest! 
Of course Shelly and I both jumped on the opportunity to cook!!

Our menu will be 3 of our favorites.
First up is "Scottie's Balls". Our Texas spin on @SGH 's "The Best Appetizer That You Will Ever Eat"



Next is our "SuckleBusters 1836 Beef Sliders". These little guys pack a lot of Beef flavor!!



And we finish with our "Baja Wave Tequila Lime Pulled Pork Tacos".



I'm told we will be in the BIG Green Egg Corporate area under the white BGE special pop ups like we have at Athens TX EggFest.



Please come by and say Hi!

    I wish I could come brother. I would love to see you again my friend. I know your grub will be an absolute hone run 👍

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Using pretzel sticks as cocktails sticks is a slick idea. Edible so no waste to dispose of. Betting there are some folks tho that may not realize the stick is not the usual wood or plastic, or they just hate pretzels, and don't eat them.
