Jacksonville Green Egg Demo and Nashville BBQ Events

If you are in the Jacksonville, FL area, my sister (dubbed "Nibble Me Sis" by our youngest son) will be doing Big Green Egg demo cooks on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at the Pinch-a-Penny from 10am - 2pm.  It is the one on SR 13 right next to Fruit Cove Baptist Church.

They are going to be have a big 15% off sale on Big Green Eggs.  Rhonda is going to be cooking and serving some of her favorites including wings, pork tenderloin, and cherry cobbler.

Rhonda has always been a good cook but a few years ago she copied her good looking, intelligent, and manly brother and bought a Big Green Egg.  Now she cooks everything on her Egg and really knows her way around a kamado grill.

Rhonda always has something on her Big Green Egg.

If you have ever been curious about kamado grills, this is a great opportunity to learn more about them and sample some great food at the same time.  It's free and doesn't require registration, just show up there next Saturday.  Plus I have just sent her a signed copy of my book, The Kamado Smoker and Grill Cookbook (Ulysses Press), to give away to one lucky attendee.  So come down!

Nashville Bound
Speaking of events, I am headed to Nashville in the morning for two great events at once. 

2015 NBBQA Conference & Trade Show - I'll be attending the National BBQ Association's annual meeting where I'll learn from the brightest and best BBQ folks in the world - competition, catering, restaurants, and more. 

2015 Hearth, Patio, and Barbecue Expo - I'll be checking out and reporting on the exciting new BBQ and grill offerings for 2015 from over 350 outdoor lifestyle companies.  For example, Saber is rolling out their new smart grill - The Edge - and I am looking forward to seeing it and much more in action.

Plus, I'll have an exciting announcement from the Expo about a major new sponsor for this blog and our competition team for 2015.   (No, I'm not going there to go sponsor hunting, ha ha.  We already have the deal signed, just doing the announcement from the HPB Expo because said company will be there.)


  1. Wow, I had no idea the Green Egg was a family affair. How cool. Way to go Rhonda. Do I understand that she'll cook the cobbler on the Green Egg too?

  2. Yes, Sam. I'm doing the cobbler in a dutch oven on the big green egg. Chris and Alexis have shown me you can cook anything on the egg. Made the best sage and beer cheese bread on it a few weeks ago.
