Reserve your Demo Egg today!

We are so grateful to our sponsors – Paragon Distributing and Morrison Supply – for providing all of the Big Green Eggs used during the Athens Eggfest.  Not only does this help our cooks, it also provides a unique opportunity for our guests – specifically those interested in purchasing a Big Green Egg.  You see, these Demo Eggs are considered to be “gently used” and are now available for your purchase at substantially discounted prices.

Here are the prices of Demo Eggs to be sold at the 2018 Athens Eggfest (SALES TAXES WILL ALSO BE ASSESSED ON YOUR PURCHASE):

$465 – Mini Max

$770 – Large BGE

$980 – XL BGE

This price includes the Big Green Egg of your preferred size, a “nest” stand, a plate setter, and a bag of charcoal.  If you’ve ever priced a Big Green Egg, you’ll recognize this as a tremendous bargain over traditional retail. SALES TAXES WILL ALSO BE ASSESSED ON YOUR PURCHASE.

To reserve your Demo Egg for delivery on the day of the event, please complete and submit the form below.  A 50% deposit will be required the day of your reservation with the balance due no later than April 14th.  For your security, we will not request your credit card information on this form. Rather, a representative of Morrison Supply will contact you within 24 hours of receiving your request.

PLEASE NOTE:  All Demo Eggs used at the 2018 Athens Eggfest must be properly cooled prior to delivery.  For this reason, we request that all deliveries be coordinated for after 4 p.m. on the day of the event.  We will have staff on hand to assist you in loading the BGE into your vehicle.
