Whether you own a BGE or just want to sample some unique new tastes from wood-fired BBQ to baked goods, then the Eggfest is for you. Our third event will be hosted at "Egg Central" Associated Energy Systems, the authorized wholesale distributor of Big Green Eggs in the Pacific Northwest. Join us for this one of a kind regional event June 13th, 2009.

I suppose it is safe to say you won't be cooking the McKinley Springs BBQ Showdown then?

Happy B-day JD. I'm not sure I should attend the EggFest; I think my wife would hurt me badly if I brought home another new toy anytime soon...

The park may have already been booked, but it could also be a logistics issue, I heard that in the past some people had purchased their demo eggs and didn't show up to take them home. I could see it being far easier for the AES folks to have it at their warehouse instead of humpin' all those Eggs and eggcesories around.
That said-if you want to cook on a demo Egg, they waive the entry fee, and the distributor (AES) are very nice people and deserve our support for keeping the Egg dealers stocked and bringing Wicked Good charcoal to the Northwest.
I'm glad they changed the date to June, because we all know that BBQ season here starts on Memorial Day and ends Labor Day!!

Seems to me like it's a little harsh to hold what's basically a sales event and then charge people to get in. I'm not a very judgemental guy, however, and so I may decide to attend, mostly to meet other locals interested in BBQ.

You would be better off joining the PNWBA and meeting like minded local folks that are into Q'n.

But-If you are interested in the Big Green Egg and want to see the versatility of it at work, or are looking for one at an unbeatable price and a lifetime warranty, then the Eggfest is for you! Think of the $25 entry fee as a buffet lunch- you get a T-shirt and a bag of schwag from the sponsors, you sample tidbits from all the cooks and be part of the mutual admiration society-who knows? You may even join the cult!

All I know is that Big Green Egg and AES has taken very good care of me, and has gone above and beyond as far as customer service goes!

HI Grant...I agree with Brian...if you are looking to meet folks that do BBQ check out a few of the local PNWBA competitions. Most of the folks at the BGE festival do mostly appetizers or grilled foods for the paying public to sample. Occasionally someone will do ribs but there really isn't enough time to do a traditional low-n-slow at the event. Come on down to the Seattle Home Depot on May 2nd...I'll be there cookin' on my WSM's and maybe a drum or two.
