The Waldo Canyon Fire was described as a “fire storm” that ended as the most destructive fire in Colorado history. This image was sent to the Big Green Egg from a home owner who took the picture of what was left after the fire engulfed his home.
MOUNTAIN HIGH APPLIANCE TO HOST THE MUCH-ANTICIPATED
8TH ANNUAL COLORADO EGGFEST
Big Green Eggs® Will Grill, Smoke, Roast, and Bake to Create a Mouthwatering Feast
Food Drive Will Support the Sister Carmen Community Center
Saturday, August 18th, 9 am – 3 pm
On Saturday, August 18th, Mountain High Appliance will host the 8th Annual Colorado EGGfest, an event that celebrates the Big Green Egg® cooking phenomenon. An annual event that has a cult following and draws folks from across the country and state, nearly thirty grilling masters and “EGGheads” will be grilling, smoking, and baking an extensive array of foods from vegetables and meats to breads, fruits, and desserts.
The event, which begins at 9 a.m., will feature demonstrations, delicious food fresh off Big Green Eggs, beverages, live music, discounts on the EGGs and “EGGcessories,” prize drawings and a Kid’s Corner with fun activities.
The idea of the EGGfest began in 1998, when Big Green Egg wanted to thank their loyal customers who regularly chatted and shared recipes and experiences. This resulted in the Annual EGGtoberfest, which is held in October in Atlanta. The success of this event has since sparked the interest of “EGGheads,” Big Green Egg devotees who share an unbridled passion and enthusiasm for the product. Today, there is a growing number of EGGfests that are held across the nation throughout the summer months.
Mountain High Appliance is proud to be chosen to host the Colorado EGGfest outside of their main showroom at 1130 Pine Street in Louisville.
For those who sign up before August 3rd, tickets are only $15 per person or $20 per couple; children under the age of 12 are free. Tickets are available at the door for $20 per person or $30 per couple. To register online, please visit www.mountainhighappliance.com/colorado-eggfest/. Contact Barbara at 303-951-0524 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Attendees will also have an opportunity to support the Sister Carmen Community Center, a Family Resource Center servicing East Boulder County. For those who bring a non-perishable or canned food donation, an extra raffle ticket will be entered for a chance to win a variety of culinary delights! Items that the Sister Carmen Community Center is most in need of includes canned tuna, canned chicken, canned fruit, juice, baby formula and canned/boxes pastas.
WHAT THE HECK IS THE BIG GREEN EGG?
In the early 1970s, Ed Fisher first tasted incredibly moist and flavorful food prepared in an Oriental kamado cooker. Fisher instantly knew this was a special product and came up with an idea for a charcoal-fueled barbecue grill based on the ancient cooking concept. He envisioned it being versatile enough to grill, smoke and bake. His new grill was shaped like a large egg and he was inspired to paint it green and give it a whimsical and memorable name that he thought would ensure consumer appeal and assist in marketing the new product — The Big Green Egg. He began selling the unusual barbecue from a small store in a suburban Atlanta shopping center.
Thirty years and a million EGGs later, the product is still largely sold by the philosophy of “seeing (and in this case, tasting) is believing.” Individual product demos and word-of-mouth recommendations from satisfied owners are still at the core of Big Green Egg’s success. “It is rather amazing that we’ve been able to take a cooking concept virtually unknown in the U.S. and catapult it to one of the most talked-about grilling and smoking products in the country.”
Why the Big Green Egg? “Fantastic food anytime,” Fisher says simply. “The Big Green Egg is so well insulated and practically impervious to the elements that even in cold, windy or rainy weather you can still grill, roast, bake or smoke in it. And the results are moister, juicier and more flavorful than anything you could ever achieve on a gas grill or even a metal charcoal grill.”
