Fogo Charcoal Lights Up The Sunshine Ace Hardware Eggfest

When it comes to grilling extravaganzas, few events rival the excitement and culinary prowess showcased at the Sunshine Ace Hardware Eggfest in Bonita Springs, Florida. This year, the event reached new heights with Fogo Charcoal joining forces with grill master CptnRon302 and his team to tantalize taste buds with an array of mouthwatering delights.

At the heart of the festivities were whole Demkota Ranch Beef Ribeye roasts, expertly smoked, cut into succulent steaks, and caveman-seared to perfection. As the aroma of sizzling beef filled the air, attendees couldn't help but gravitate towards the Fogo Charcoal booth, eager to experience the flavor-packed creations.

CptnRon302, renowned for his culinary prowess and passion for grilling, took center stage, demonstrating his expertise with the Big Green Egg. Throughout the day, he wowed the crowd with a live cooking demo,  a masterclass on crafting crispy wings that left everyone craving more.

But what truly set CptnRon302's demo apart was his reveal of the secret recipe for the ultimate buffalo wing sauce. With a perfect balance of heat and tang, this sauce elevated the humble wing to gourmet status, earning nods of approval and requests for seconds from all who sampled it.

As the afternoon wore on,  the Fogo Charcoal booth remained a hub of activity. Eggheads swapped tips and tricks, bonded over their shared love of everything Big Green Egg, and reveled in the camaraderie that comes with a passion for outdoor cooking.  One highlight for the crowd was the surprise guest appearance by none other than The Pearly Girl herself, Ms. Tina Cannon.  For those who are not aware, Tina is a world-renowned BBQ Champion, winner of the Netflix BBQ Showdown show on season one and 3rd place finisher on Bobby Flay’s team on The recent Food Network show, BBQ  Brawl.  The best part is that she is a wonderful person who we are proud to associate with.  You can find Tina on all social media at @TinaCannonCooks.  Give her a follow and drop her a note, she loves the BBQ community!

For Fogo Charcoal, participating in events like the Sunshine Ace Hardware Eggfest is more than just showcasing our premium charcoal products—it's about fostering a community of grill aficionados and inspiring culinary creativity. By partnering with talented chefs like CptnRon302 and providing a platform for them to showcase their skills, Fogo Charcoal continues to fuel the flames of innovation in the world of outdoor cooking.

As the embers of another successful Eggfest smoldered into the late afternoon, attendees departed with full stomachs, satisfied smiles, and a newfound appreciation for the artistry of grilling. And for those who had the pleasure of experiencing the culinary magic of Fogo Charcoal and CptnRon302, the memories of smoky beef ribeye and crispy wings would linger long after the grill had cooled.

If you get an opportunity to attend a local Eggfest, we highly recommend it.  It is one of the only places where you can purchase a Big Green Egg at a discount and most BGE dealers are proud partners of FOGO as well.  If you see us at an event, please make sure to come and introduce yourself, we would love to meet you and who knows, we may have some swag for you.  Until then, remember to always get out and grill and we will see you at the next Eggfest on the FOGO Life.  Captain Ron…..OUT!!!
