Spring is almost here and that usually means the start of barbecue season for Brian and I. But not this year. Since adopting the Big Green Egg into our family (yes, It’s part of the family now!) we’ve been smoking and grilling all winter long. The Egg retains heat so well that it hasn’t been a problem getting it up to 700F even on a cold winter day.
These extra months of practice will come in handy, as we are preparing to take our game down to Fargo this September and represent Winnipeg in their 2nd annual Eggfest!
Team WinnipEGGHeads consists of (so far) myself and Brian, and a couple of our best buds. We have a long list of ideas for Eggfest (too long!) and we are working on paring down the list to our best of the best. I don’t want to give away all the secrets just yet, but I can tell you we will definitely be featuring the Egg as a pizza oven. We’ll also be cooking up lots of meat, but we really want to highlight the fact that an Egg is not just a grill or a smoker, so expect to see some dishes that you wouldn’t normally think of when you think of typical barbecue fare.
Mark September 15, 2012 on your calendar. We’d love all of our Winnipeg fans to come down to Fargo Eggfest and cheer us on – and vote for us too! Check out the link to Fargo Eggfest under “Big Green Egg Links” for more details on the event.
