EggFest is an event dedicated to the Big Green Egg Smoker/Grill. "Eggheads" (Egg Enthusiasts) family and friends travel from all over to participate and share in fun and festivities. Whether you own a Big Green Egg or just want to sample some unique new recipes from BBQ to baked goods, then EggFest is the event for you!
There will be some amazing food coming off the eggs all day, so pace yourself! It is suggested the tasters arrive between 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM in order to experience the "full" Big Green Eggfest experience! You'll soon learn why the Big Green Egg is the "Ultimate Cooking Experience".
Pre-registration for "Taster Tickets" has ended. You can still purchase regular tickets, but they no longer come with an Official EggFest T-Shirt. Tickets grant you access to unlimited food samples from dozens of cooks all performing their special recipes on the Big Green Egg. These tickets can be purchased individually for $20 or as a couple for a discount at $35.
Children 12 and under are admitted to the event for FREE!
Day of the event admission will be $20 per individual and does not include an official T-Shirt.
For an EggFest to be successful, we need cooks. EggFest is the venue for EggHeads to showcase their talents on the Big Green Egg. The cooks will be showcasing their skills and talents and will be preparing their specialty recipes all day long. It's also an opportunity to sample the food, share recipes and talk to other Big Green Egg enthusiasts.
Outdoor Home will provide a new Big Green Egg, a load of charcoal, and sanitation supplies for each cook to use throughout the day. These "used once" Big Green Eggs are pre-sold and then colleted after the event by the owner. Additional information on EggFest Eggs is listed below.
To register as an EggFest Cook, download a Cook Registration and submit the form at either Outdoor Home location or by fax (417-869-4447) or over the phone (417-869-0174).

At the hotel, we will also be hosting our Friday night Meet-and-Greet for Cooks and other Big Green Egg enthusiasts. This gathering will be catered, although final details aren't quite finished.
The Smokin' the Ozarks Eggfest has grown each year, and past EggFests have allowed Outdoor Home to gather important feedback from both cooks and tasters. That is why this year will feature an "Eggcellent Chef Award" competition. Throughout the day tasters will vote on which Big Green Egg Chef is simply the best!
This allows cooks to prepare a variety of recipes throughout the day and demonstrate the versatility of the Big Green Egg! All cooks are encouraged to participate, there are no special requirements/ingredients, and the winners will receive a distinguished prizes!
