What to Cook or Not to Cook

There are going to be a limited number of Eggs available at the fest. With that understanding it is not advised to do very long cooks such as brisket and pork butt as you may be sharing your egg. If you know of another cook whom you would like to share with, please identify and we’ll make sure to pair you!

Other than those previous mentioned, have fun! You are only limited by your imagination! One rule…it must be cooked on the Egg!!! Many of the newbies are going to be interacting with you to learn techniques and preparations. Great learning happens when huddled around the Egg! Remember that you are producing sample sized portions! You are not personally responsible for feeding the entire crowd with each dished cooked!! A good rule of thumb is “two bites” or less!

What Not to Bring

Germania Park is a private club that works with it’s own liquor license. 9 beer taps will be working at the event so we ask that you not bring in liquor or soft drinks unless it is an ingredient in your cook. Please respect the club!
