Pensacola Eggfest has given over $200,000 to local nonprofit organizations since the BBQ party kicked off back in 2013. Their motto is #goodfood for a #goodcause and it couldn’t be more true. This year, the primary charity is Rally Pensacola, a foundation that provides financial assistance to families who have a child that is battling cancer.
Pensacola Blue Wahoo’s Stadium will be the site where about 80 cook teams will compete for some awesome trophies and bragging rights. All the food will be prepared on Big Green Eggs, a ceramic kamado-style charcoal grill.
If you’re going, be sure to go hungry. It’s impossible to list what all these great cook teams will whip up but be prepared for some of the finest grilled and smoked food you’ve ever put in your mouth. It’ll be everything from grandpa’s secret pulled pork recipe to sweet desserts and cookies.
Admission tickets are $25 in advance or $35 at the gate the day of the event. There is no charge for children 10 and under. The gates open at noon and food will be served until 3 p.m. on Sunday November 11.
Co-chairs Buck Hall, Lisa Long, and Doug Jolly have put their heart and soul into what is now one of Pensacola’s most popular annual events. They truly live the #egglife and if you don’t believe it be sure to check out their latest video It’s the #Egglife.
Superstar pitmaster Big Moe Cason and columnist & novelist Sean Dietrich will be this year’s special guests. Cason who is one of Americas most popular BBQ pitmasters loves Pensacola and has been a staple at the event for a number of years now.
In addition to Rally Pensacola, proceeds from this year’s event will also benefit Manna Food Pantry, Sacred Heart’s “Sacred Paws” service dog program, and the Studer Community Institute.
