MRCA Sponsored Team Takes BBQ Crown
Big Green Craig (AKA Craig Tabor) and his crew took their second People's Choice Award at EGGtoberfest 2016, a massive barbecue event staged at Stone Mountain Park outside of Atlanta last Saturday (Oct 8).
Despite the best efforts of Hurricane Matthew, which was hammering the US East coast after devastating Haiti and pounding Florida, the event went off without a hitch.
MRCA’s CEO and Creative Director, Andrew Dallman, was on hand to cheer Craig and his crew on to victory. @MediumRareChef joined a host of amazing sponsors, including @MeatChurch; @FogoCharcoal; @CarsonRodizio; @KickAshBasket; @FlameBossSmokes; @concaveboard; @LooftLighter; and @PizzaPorta, who backed the winning crew.
We’d like to think the awesome MRCA gear the crew was sporting, which included Henry aprons customized for the event, got an assist in the win.
In its 19th year, EGGtoberfest is a day dedicated to celebrating the Big Green Egg. Building on a traditional Japanese design updated with space age materials, the distinctive ceramic “egg” was developed by Ed Fisher in the 1970s.
The Egg has developed a cult-like following among hard core backyard grillers and smokers, witnessed by the 100s of teams that came out to compete and the thousands on hand to taste, enjoy EGG demos, listen to live music and spend a day at the Park.
Craig, a mild mannered business professional by day, morphs into Big Green Craig evenings and weekends to spread the good word of barbecue and preach the wonders of the Big Green Egg.
Now a two-time EGGtoberfest winner, Craig claims there’s nothing he won’t grill.
