As if this weekend’s All-Star BBQ didn’t promise to be awesome enough, we’ve got another bit of fabulous programming to add into the mix; a no-holds-barred BBQ Throwdown sponsored by the Big Green Egg®! Three different chefs will face off during each of the All-Star BBQ sessions this Sunday, tasked with making a winning dish using a top-secret protein, prepared on a Big Green Egg® (domed, combination cookers/grills/smokers, fired by wood or natural charcoal). The first 100 attendees to grab a tasting token at the Throwdown booth will be able to test our talented chef’s off-the-cuff creations, and vote who will walk away with the title, as well as their very own Big Green Egg®!
Here’s who’s going head to head this weekend — and believe us, it won’t be just the Eggs getting heated—a few of our fierce, ready-to-rumble competitors are already talking some serious game-day trash!
