NEW FOR 2022

Every team will pay a $40 registration deposit to secure their team spot. This refundable deposit is to ensure that you show up and cook at the event. 

You will get this money back the day of the event as long as you show up and cook (you can also voluntarily opt to donate this money to the Texas Restaurant Foundation - the choice is yours). As of right now, each paying guest will get 5 voting tickets worth 50 cents per ticket. Guests can give all 5 to one team or can split them up among multiple teams as they see fit. 

Deposits will NOT be refunded if you fail to show up at the event or if you need to cancel once we have pre-sold your demo egg.

If you would like to sign up to showcase your skills on the Big Green Egg, or if you would like more information on cooking at our Eggfest email us at eggfestdallas@sunnylandfurniture.com or call Brad at 972-239-3716.

You should plan on providing minimum of 250 to 500 small tastings/samples to other guests (more is fine of course). Samples could be wings, meatballs, slices of cake, or many other bite size pieces. For example, a boneless skinless chicken thigh could be cut into 4 to 8 pieces, and served perhaps on a toothpick or in a small cup. Remember, cooks are providing tastings, not a meal.

Big Green Egg lump charcoal, toothpicks, and sample cups will be provided but you will need to provide any other tools and accessories you might need to do the cook. If you forgot something you can probably borrow it from another Egghead or purchase it from Sunnyland with your EggHead family member discount.

Long cooks such as brisket and ribs are discouraged due to the timing of the event (you are welcome to arrive earily in the morning if you are interested though). It is important to remember that an Eggfest is about sharing ideas, recipes and introducing others to food cooked on the Big Green Egg, so keeping food samples available is important. 

However, beyond that, the options are limited only by your imagination. Consider quick cooks like steaks (flank, skirt, London broil, etc), chicken pieces, pork loins, tenderloins, chops or country style ribs, shrimp or meat on skewers, Soups or Stews in Dutch ovens, etc. You can put your own “style” in your cook by using unique rubs, sauces, techniques, ingredients, etc.

Also, there is no reason for you to limit your thinking to a particular meal. You can do appetizer finger type foods, desserts, or perhaps a few will even decide to do a breakfast cook. Breakfast meals are always welcome to Early Birds.

During the day, keep in mind that many of the attendees are either new Egg owners or perhaps considering buying an Egg. Expect them to ask you questions about your recipe, technique, setup, temperature, accessories, experiences, etc. We hope to have the cooking area set up in such a way that your work table/serving table should provide a natural barrier to keep guests out of your cooking space and away from the hot Eggs. Please keep guest safety and an isolated work space in mind when setting up for the actual cook.
