Register to Cook
Sign up to showcase your skills at the Central Florida Fall EggFest this year! Receive an event t-shirt, gift bag full of goodies, a chance to win great prizes in an exclusive raffle for cooks, and entry to the Meet and Greet the night before. Don’t miss out on the festivities!
As an EggFest Cook, you can prepare anything you’d like to serve! We’ll have the lighting of the Eggs at 8 am on Saturday and you may prepare proteins, sauces etc. ahead of time. EggChefs should be prepared to provide a minimum of 100-150 bite sized samples to our tasters.
Long Cooks: Cooks who want to cook briskets, pork shoulders or other long cooks that can’t be accomplished between the lighting of the Eggs and 11am may choose to start their cooks on their Eggs at home, as long as they adhere to the following guidelines:
- Items must be finished on a Big Green Egg at Central Florida Fall EggFest.
- Cooks must follow food safety guidelines and ensure that the protein temperature has not been between 41-135 degrees for more than four hours. The internal temperature must reach between 145 degrees whole or 155 degrees if injected. This information will be printed on the back of your access credential.
You are providing bite sized samples — you are not expected to provide a meal. Of course, more is fine and you are encouraged to show off your Big Green Egg cooking skills!
