Nope, this event isn’t actually about eggs. It’s an a celebration of BBQ cooking on a strange-looking contraption called The Big Green Egg. Confused? Part barbecue, part smoker, part ceramic cooker, these odd-looking grills have a huge following of barbecue enthusiasts who cook up everything from pizzas to meatloaf on their Eggs.
For the second year, Stumptown Brewery in Guerneville (15045 River Rd., Guerneville, 869-0705) hosts an Eggs on the River Eggfest (August 4, 2012), a cookoff with 18 of the Eggs fired up and ready to cook onsite. It’s BYO food with amateur eggists doing their thing from 10am to 4pm. Throughout the day, check out demos and snack on food made by contenders. More details and registration at winecountryeggs.com . Tickets $20 per person, $35 per couple.
