Thank you for your interest in cooking in our 8th Annual “The” Ohio Eggfest! The Ohio eggfest is a celebration and cooking competition where everything is cooked on The Big Green Egg. Below are some frequently asked questions, but if you still have a question feel free to send us an email and we will get right back to you.
No, you don't! We provide each team with a Big Green Egg and Big Green Egg charcoal. If you would like to bring your Big Green Egg, feel free to! We will still provide you with at least 1 new Big Green Egg to cook on.
There is no entry fee it is FREE to enter a team. We do ask that you keep the team to no more than 4 people.
Every cook team will receive at least (1) Large Big Green Egg. Some teams may receive (2) and a few receive will receive (1) XL Big Green Egg. It is based on who signs up first and which size Egg your team prefers.
Each team is allowed 4 cook team members. If you would like more team members, they would have to purchase a ticket to the event. Remember, 100% of all ticket sales are donated to cancer research! If you are wanting more members, consider entering two teams. If you do that, make sure you are creating at least two different items though.
We are hoping for around 1000-1500 attendees. You should plan for at least 750 samples. If you run out it is not the end of the world. But more is always better!
During these uncertain times, we completely understand if your team can no longer make the event. If something comes up, please let us know immediately by emailing us or giving us a call. That way we can fill your space as soon as possible.
It is! Since this is a fundraiser that goes through our foundation, what you spend on the event will be tax-deductible. On the day of the event, if you provide us dated receipts for all of the food and supplies you bought for the event, we will hand you a signed form with the total of the receipts, stating you made a charitable contribution, which will then be tax-deductible under Internal Revenue Code regulations.
Yes, there will be outlets that you can use throughout the event.
Cooking can begin as early as 7:00pm on Friday, July 30th. Your team should start cooking no later than 9:00am on Saturday, July 30th. You are more than welcome to do an overnight cook.
The event starts at 10am and tasting begins at 10:30am. So anytime between 10-10:30am would be ideal. The event ends around 4:00pm, so the closer you can continue to serve until 4:00pm the better.
We provide at least 1 Big Green Egg to cook on and we will also light the Big Green Egg for you. Also provided will be, Big Green Egg charcoal, convEGGtor (Platesetter, which is the indirect heat plate used for smoking, baking, roasting, etc), a 10x10 space which is covered, a table used for serving, small 2oz souffle cups, handwash stations, garbage cans.
Anything else that you would need, feel free to bring. If you have any questions on if you are allowed to bring something, email us at email@example.com.
That is completely up to you! A Big Green Egg can cook almost anything you throw at it. You can cook anything from bbq to pizza to desserts. There is no rule on what you can or cannot cook. You will just need to provide samples for the attendees. You only need to cook 1 thing but if you want to do multiple variations feel free to!
The main reason for this event is to raise as much money as we can for cancer research. But why not have a little competition while we're at it! We have 3 awards that we give out during the event.
