Big Green Egg demos, tastings at Grillapalooza

by BETH ALTENA

See the Big Green Egg in action this Saturday at Grillapalooza at Herman’s Boy. One lucky winner will win a grill package worth over $1,250.

“There is nothing else like them,” said Floyd Havemeier of Herman’s Boy about the Big Green Egg.

Havemeier donated a Big Green Egg prize package worth at least $1,250 to help the Rockford Area Historical Society raise funds for a new museum slated for the building that formerly housed the Rockford court. A few tickets remain of the only 200 to be offered with a $25 tax deductible donation to the museum fund.

Enjoy a day of demonstrations about just what can be done with one of these unique cooking devices during the annual Grillapalooza at Herman’s Boy, located at 220 Northland Drive. Grillapalooza takes place Saturday, May 5 (Cinco de Mayo) beginning at 10 a.m. with Havemeier’s grandson Michael demonstrating “Breakfast on the Grill” with a Cinco de Mayo theme.

Havemeier said Grillapalooza will be a fun event with all sorts of grilling demonstrations and tasting. The day’s highlights will include tastings of items cooked with a new line of spices developed by his son Brian. The coffee-based flavorings have been a work in process for years and a “secret” ingredient used at many fine-dining restaurants. This chef’s secret weapon makes a world of difference on beef, pork, chicken and seafood.

The Big Green Egg prize includes the large-size Egg grill, the nest that holds it, an instructional DVD, accessories and free classes on grilling.

“We’ve sold fourteen in the last ten days,” Havemeier said of the product.

For more information or to donate to the museum fund, stop by Herman’s Boy during business hours.
