How to Participate
Enter a Team
Teams consist of a head chef and 4 helpers, for a total of 5 official team members. You can have other people at your tent, but they will not be allowed to help in cooking or preparation. They will also need to purchase General Admission tickets. Teams are required to participate in the Pork and Chicken cook off competition. There is are optional appetizer and dessert categories that cost $25 to enter. Half of the proceeds from the appetizer entries go to Ronald McDonald House, the other half goes to the winning team. Pork, chicken, appetizers, and desserts are judged by a professional panel of judges and celebrity judges. Desserts are also judged by attendees for the People's Choice award. Offical team members are required to be at the event from 5:00 a.m. until cleanup is finished. More details about entry can be found on the entry form and in the rules packet.
Come for Lunch!
While our BBQ teams can't feed you lunch (even though we wish they could), we do have a full BBQ lunch catered in by the wonderful B&C BBQ who donates a HUGE portion of the food to the event. Come join us for chicken and pork BBQ, their famous mac & cheese, and corn muffins. Don't forget the fantastic fruit tea! After you have enjoyed your meal, visit our teams for the People's Choice contest. You will taste a dessert from each participating team and vote on your favorite! We will list dessert ingedients at front door. Please be mindful of allergies! Tickets are $10. You can pre-purchase or buy at the door with cash, check, or credit card.
Don't BBQ? Sign up for a booth space!
