More than 1,000 Big Green Egg fanatics are taking over Camp Ben McCulloch for the 15th annual Texas EggFest. This celebration of all things barbecue and a bestselling ceramic smoker started out as a smaller promotional event with BBQ Outfitters, which started in Austin and now has a location in San Antonio.

More than 100 Big Green Eggs will be fired up at this weekend’s Big Green Texas EggFest at Camp Ben McCulloch. Contributed by BBQ Outfitters.

Since 2014, the event has taken place at the event venue at 18301 FM 1826 in Driftwood, and this year, Texas EggFest returns from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 29, where you can take cooking classes, watch cooking demonstrations, listen to live music, try samples of food from chefs, including Will Rivera of Cured in San Antonio, and shop barbecue accessories.

There will also be a Big Green Egg cook-off with teams competing from around the state. Carolyn Wonderland, Elijah Ford & the Bloom and Lost Pines are scheduled to perform. Tickets cost $35 and benefit the food banks in Central Texas and San Antonio. You can find them at
