Bay Breeze Patio, an official retailer of the Big Green Egg, announces the Second Annual “Eggs on the Beach” EggFest BBQ Competition taking place on Saturday, Sept. 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Seascape Resort in Miramar Beach. As one of the official Big Green Egg Festivals held around the country, Eggs on the Beach will be a delicious afternoon for the entire family, featuring a cooking competition, “People’s Choice Awards”, tastings, live music and children’s activities.
“We were excited to have such a high level of the interest and participation for our first Eggs on the Beach EggFest held last year,” said Bay Breeze Patio Co-owner and Grill Master Wayne Paul. “Everyone had such a great time and we’re anticipating increasing the number of cook teams and hosting more tasters. Seascape is a great partner and the perfect location to host an outdoor BBQ event.”
Cook team registration is now open. Cook Teams create bite size portions of their favorite recipes to be judged by the public. Each team of up to four is given a large or extra-large Big Green Egg to use during the competition. Teams purchase their own ingredients. Bay Breeze Patio provides the lump charcoal, fire starter, table, tent, paper plates, plastic utensils, napkins and toothpicks. Tasters vote for their favorites, as teams vie for bragging rights and prizes, including the grand prize, a brand new large Big Green Egg.
“EggHeads, master grillers, backyard grillers, and everyone in between is encouraged to join the fun and register a cook team,” said Paul. “Our goal is create the most fun, cook-friendly and taster- friendly BBQ competition in the region while giving back to our local community.”
All proceeds from Eggs on the Beach will benefit the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast. Located on
Eglin Air Force Base, the Fisher House provides a "home away from home" for military families so the
family can be together during treatment for serious illness or physical/occupational therapy.
In addition, drawing tickets may be purchased for a chance to win a Big Green Egg and other items donated by area businesses with these proceeds also benefiting the Fisher House.
For those who long to own a Big Green Egg, demo Eggs, which will be used during the event, will be sold in advance with nest (metal stand) and plate setter for a discounted price. There are 40 Demo Eggs for sale (25 large and 15 XLarge) and all come with a limited lifetime warranty. Demo Eggs must be picked up after the event, between 4 – 5 p.m. on September 26.
Eggs on the Beach will include tastings, grilling demonstrations, live music by Chris Alvarado, cash bar with beer, wine and sodas, and more. Cook team registration is $50 for a team of four and each team member will receive a welcome bag, including a commemorative t-shirt and Wayne's Get Grillin' Rub.
