We are excited to have some of the best Green Egg professionals demonstrating their culinary skills. We will be posting demonstration times. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get ideas and learn how to increase your Green Egg IQ!
This year, we are excited to announce that Ray Lampe, aka Dr. BBQ will be joining us at the Central Florida Fall Eggfest. Lampe has been all over the place — from the Food Network’s Chopped to a judge on FYI’s World Food Championships. He’s written cookbooks, was inducted into the BBQ Hall of Fame in 2014 and is co-owner of several Dr. BBQ restaurants. You won’t want to miss his demos or have a chance to taste the goodies he’ll be preparing.
If you’re looking for a slew of recipes, he’s got a bunch for you such as bacon-wrapped pig wings (I guess pigs can fly), peachy baby back ribs, Dr. BBQ’s sweet potato pie with Jack Daniel’s and a little end zone barbecue rub. My lips are smackin’ just thinking about all of that.
Marcia Simmons is cooking up some yummies on her Big Green Egg. She’ll be demonstrating “WOK This Way! A Beginners Guide to Using a Wok on the Big Green Egg.” You can view some of her recipes on our recipes page.
Simmons lives in Clearwater, FL and is a native of Massachusetts. She got her first BGE in 2006 after dealing with the assembly and disposal of rusted gas and charcoal grills. At that time, she knew nothing of the Egghead community and their passion. To learn and share techniques, she followed online forums, YouTube videos and Facebook groups. She also loves to travel and share her knowledge of the BGE. She’s done everything from Eggfest demonstrations to teaching classes for BGE dealerships.
She’s appeared at:
- Sunshine State Eggfest
- North Georgia Mountain Eggfest
- Greater Orlando Eggfest
- and many smaller eggfests around Florida.
She hopes to retire from her IT job and devote her time to teaching and sharing BGE knowledge to new eggheads. She also wants to egg on budding eggfest cooks so that the traditions and techniques continue.

Orlando Meats also uses the entire animal to reduce waste and create lesser known cuts. We also have Orlando Meats cooking and demoing butchering techniques.
