new to the egg community

Brand new to the egg community. Went to porkopolis at germania park in Cincinnati. Bought a xl demo and my wife won the raffle for a medium. Came there with nothing, left with two. Very excited to be apart of the community.

    Daron, where was your booth located?  Was it in the main shelter or the secondary tent?  I had to have walked by you a couple of times.

  • I was in the secondary tent. I made what I called the Angry Pig. It was stuffed jalapenos wrapped in sausage and then wrapped in a bacon weave.

    @Big_Ern Welcome to the cult! I'm so glad you made the trip over for a demo, and I'm thrilled that you won the Medium. You have quite the effective "1-2" punch! I hope to see you at Porkopolis next year!!!

    Happy Eggin'

    I definitely will make that trip again. Porkopolis was awesome.
