Grillapalooza hot success despite daunting weather

The Big Green Egg and staff at Herman’s Boy made this year’s Grillapalooza a popular and well-attended event, despite a weather prediction of possible snow flurries and blowing rain. Members of the Rockford Sportsman’s Club were on hand to talk about the Junior Olympic Archery Program and plenty of residents tasted samples of turkey and pork with a large variety of sauces. There were also wood-fired pizza demonstrations and a little green egg hunt for the kiddies. The event was held on Saturday, May 8 at Herman’s Boy, 220 old Northland Drive, Rockford.

Jamie McCormick and Natalie Beeg hand out samples of turkey and pork cooked in a Big Green Egg. The pair had a great time under an outdoor awning last Saturday, despite rain and wind.

Wood carver Mike Hart shows off an eagle he offered for sale at the Herman’s Boy Grillapalooza 2010. Hart carves with a chainsaw and said the bird took him about a day to create.

Michael Torsky samples turkey and sauces at Herman’s Boy. After trying several BBQ flavors, his verdict: “Original is best.”

Gray Zuiderveen, 2, is first charmed by this whimsical wood carving of a grinning frog. Then, terrified, he ran to his mother’s arms.
