EggFEST Cook-Off Rules

Screen shot 2017-02-28 at 1.17.22 PM.png

We are very EGGcited!
Thanks for Signing up to Compete!
Without you Eggfest is simply a bunch of hungry people hanging out in a parking lot.

NEW to 2018 - Teams can now be up to 4 people. BOTH MEAT & SIDES REQUIRED, Serving Time is from 11a-2p. Plus the Taster's Path will increase from 10 feet to 20 feet wide, and Team spaces now 10'x10'.


EggChefs can set up Friday the 22nd in the secured tent at the Alaska Airlines Center from 12pm-5pm and should join us for the EggChef Meet & Greet at 5 pm under the tent at the Alaska Airlines Center.  Lighting of the Eggs will immediately commence! Please plan to light your Egg as early as you need to in order to have your food to a judge by 10am on June the 23rd, and to have food ready when the hungry crowds arrive by 11am on June the 23rd. You may prepare rubs, sauces etcetera ahead of time, but all cooking must be done onsite.  EggChefs should be prepared to provide a minimum of 100-150 bite sized samples of the meat and 100-150 bite sized samples of the sides to our tasters.  Remember, you are providing bite sized samples – you are not expected to provide a meal. More is fine and you are encouraged to show off your skills! Generators are allowed. Pasta may be boiled at home and brought on site, but can also be boiled on site with a hot plate as well. We assume you will be cooking on your assigned egg for the entire day. Tasters will each pay $10 admission to try your fare from 11a to 2p, with 50% of admission going to MDA. Tasters will cast votes for the People’s Choice Award for best meat and best side - with the winner taking home more great prizes. The people’s choice awards will be based on the food that is presented to the judges, so you will want to have enough of what you provided to the judges for the tasters.

 What to Bring
All teams will be given an XL Big Green Egg to use for the cook-off.  Cooks are required to bring all ingredients required for your dishes. This includes all your own food, plus what you need to cook, such as:
