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 they 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. Crowds enjoyed 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 was open to 30 teams that picked 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 was provided a large BIG Green Egg, which can be used as a grill, oven, or smoker. Competitors tested 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.
The interviews captured May 4th are also accompanied on most segments by excerpts from the Celebrity Chef Demos which ran most of the afternoon feauring Joe Pichey of Go Blue BBQ, of Texas, (a Flint, MI, native) and Trace Scarborough of Thunderbird Wings, of Nashville, TN.
