Salado Eggfest 2013 Was Wonderful - Again...

This was the third Salado Eggfest and it was the best yet.  The crowd was larger, the weather better, the food tastier, the park prettier, and the Village of Salado more welcoming.

Mickey has become a Master at holding Eggfests, and Russ and his crew at Keith Ace Hardware did an outstanding job of setting up the Demo Eggs for the Cooks, and operating the Big Green Egg Accessory Store.

The Eggfest, the Meet & Greet party Friday night and the After Party Saturday night went off without a hitch.

And what can I say about the Cooks...  You guys were fantastic!  Not only were there lots of simple but tasty dishes, there were a lot of very creative dishes that one would not expect to see outside a professional kitchen.  We hope to gather recipes from everyone and post them on this site for all to try.

I believe this may be a first for any Eggfest, but we actually had some Tasters fly in by helicopter.  And yes, it was Mickey who made the arrangements for where they could land near the Park.  Very cool...

Of course, being St. Patrick's Day weekend and Salado being a host town for a major Scottish Clan Gathering each year, a few of us wore our kilts and Irish Green.

And here's a wee bit of news: Our blog site has now grown to 27,000 hits from almost 50 countries.  People around the world are taking a close look at what we Eggheads do for entertainment.  And they keep coming back for more.  Don't you just love being part of it all...

I tried to capture the moment by collecting all the photos I could and assemble them into a video which I posted on YouTube.  Take a look...

Thanks for coming.

See you next year.
