Herman’s Boy in Rockford is kicking off the summer grilling season with an event that they like to call Grillapalooza. This free event is Saturday, May 13th from 10am to 4pm, and will ensure that you have the perfect grilling accessories and advice to be the King of the Grill this summer.
Grillapalooza includes samples from “Eggheads,” Big Green Egg grill fanatics, making their favorite dishes and sharing them with event goers. The Big Green Egg is the one and only grill that Herman’s Boy carries, and for good reason. Not only is it a grill, it is a fantastic smoker, slow cooker, oven, and whatever else you want it to be. Cook pizzas, bake breads, grill chicken breasts, slow cook pulled pork, smoke brisket and jerky, and simmer soups, all in the Big Green Egg. The event also includes activities for the kids, a variety of food, and more, making it an event for the entire family.
Herman’s Boy is a family owned and operated combination of five shops in one location. These shops include a coffee roastery, bakery and deli, candy and fudge shop, kitchen gadget shop, and outdoor cooking and smokehouse shop.
