As an Eggfest Chef, you can prepare any dish you would like to serve. We'll have the lighting of the Eggs at 8 a.m. on Saturday and you may prepare proteins, sauces etc. ahead of time. Egg Chefs should be prepared to provide a minimum of 350-500 bite sized samples to our tasters.

Long Cooks: Egg Chefs 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 final cooking is completed on a Big Green Egg at the Florida Keys Eggfest.

Remember, you are providing bite sized samples - you are not expected to provide a meal. More is fine and you are encouraged to show off your skills!

Cooks are required to bring all ingredients required for your dishes. This includes all your own food, plus what you need to cook, such as:

 tablecloths, thermometer, BBQ tools, oven mitts, smoking wood, seasonings, food coolers, foil, paper towels, knives, cutting boards, v-rack vertical roaster, drip pan, grill extender, pizza stone.

  Have fun and make sure to interact with your guests and tasters. Personality and service are all part of a great tasting experience.


                                                                       *Extra Large egg is by request only and limited quantities are available.
