Bay Breeze Patio, an official retailer of the Big Green Egg, will host two Big Green Egg cooking classes, Aug. 24 and Sept. 15, in preparation for Eggs on the Beach EggFest Cooking Competition, September 24, at Seascape Resort. Cooking classes will be led by Grill Master Wayne Paul and will provide tips, tricks and tools for grilling, smoking and searing foods on the Big Green Egg. Whether planning to compete in the EggFest competition or simply a backyard griller, the Big Green Egg Cooking classes offer something for every skill level.
The classes will begin with Big Green Egg basics, including lighting and cleaning the Big Green Egg and progress to cooking methods and advanced techniques that are possible with Big Green Egg tools. Temperature, seasonings and cooking process are all important elements in creating the most juicy, flavorful results.
