Eggfest ~ Wild West Eggfest, Casper Wyoming

Image hosted by Photobucket.com



The 2010 Wild West Eggfest was my first one and it was a blast. This first year was a parking lot fest held at Porter's, the local Big Green Egg Dealer. Each 2 person team of guest cooks were set-up with a new BGE, a covered shelter and tables. In addition to myself, my group consisted of cookin' buddies, Bart, Shawn and Phil. We had two large Eggs to cook on. Cooks provide their own food and this year it was BYOB. In order for folks to experience some traditional barbecue, I did an all night cook, smoking two pork butts which came off my Egg at home at 7AM and stored in an insulated cooler and pulled on-site. We served plates of pulled pork as well as pulled pork sliders. At the fest we cooked pizzas (traditional and ones with flour tortilla crusts), fatties, marinated flat iron steaks, planked salmon and grilled bananas. Phil brought along a 6 gallon keg of homemade beer to wet our thirst.

The morning started off with pizzas off the Papa Murphy's Egg, these were cinnamon swirl breakfast pizzas, and by mid morning regular pizzas were being served about every half hour or so. These are take-and-bake pizzas and were cooked on the same little trays like you use in the oven. They were delicious.

The other cooks really outdid themselves, and there was a huge variety of food cooked this day. My favorite was some domestic lamb. It was cooked to perfection and there was plenty to go around.
