(Fox2) - The culinary team at Michigan's Most Spectacular Resort - Treetops Resort tried something new last year at the Top of the Hill and it's safe to say it was a smashing success! Treetops 'Grill on the Hill' is a Big Green Egg Cooking Competition, AKA an "Eggfest."
Cooking teams traveled from near and far to show guests what they could do with these green dimpled ceramic grilling contraptions.
Turns out people are literally obsessed with their Eggs - and with what we tasted from the competitors in 2018, it's (over) easy to see why.
Meat, good beer, live music, and great friends: a combination that surely can't be beat. Enjoy all three on Saturday, May 4th from Noon to 4 p.m. at Treetops Resort's second annual Grill on the Hill EggFest sponsored by Meyer Ace Hardware, and BLiS Gourmet.
The competition is open to 30 teams that can pick between a 40lb bone in pork butt, 24 racks of St Louis style ribs, 50lbs of fresh chicken wings, or 35lbs of brisket. Each Grill Team will be provided a large BIG Green Egg, which can be used as a grill, oven, or smoker. Competitors will test their grilling skills against some of Michigan's best, with a cost $200 for a team of up to four people, and includes the meat and all of the Green Egg essentials.
Treetops Resort will be giving awards for the tastiest meat preparation, with the Grand Prize winning team (most votes delivered by spectator judges - that's everyone who loves to taste test grilled meat fare! ) taking home a Large Green Egg and a free entry into the 2020 Grill on the Hill EggFest.
Attendees of the event will get to sample and judge the competitors finished products, along with enjoying a hand-picked selection of Michigan's finest craft brews. It's $30 dollars for adults and free for anyone 12 and under, and includes an official Egg Fest T-shirt if you register before April 15, 2019.
