EGGtoberfest 2013

John and I went to Big Green Egg’s 16th Annual EGGtoberfest in Georgia last weekend.

EGGtoberfest 2013

EGGtoberfest is held every October and is the EggFest of all EggFests.

An EggFest is a venue for people who enjoy cooking on a Big Green Egg or who want to start cooking on one.

It kicked off with a Meet and Greet Party at the Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort.

I consider that breakfast since it has “coffee” in the name.

Look at the Big Green Egg XXL:

The cooking grid measures 29.25 inches in diameter for a cooking area of 672 square inches!

That’s large enough to roast a whole hog, 20 racks of ribs, or 40 burgers.

    Great Job! Really enjoyed looking at all the food pics, I was stuffing my face so fast I didn’t take time to see how nice it all looked.

  8. Chris says:

    We have skipped the past two years but I think it’s time for a return!

  9. We could not attend this year. Not to attend an Eggtoberfest is taking a piece out of ones life.

    I have never been to an eggfest but it is definitely on the top of my to-do list!!
