* IBCA Sanctioned BBQ competition

-Brisket, Spare Ribs, 1/2 Chicken- Want to be a judge? email [email protected] to get on the list, limited spaces available.

*Because we are adding Brisket this year, many cooks will be cooking overnight. We will try to accommodate trucks/cars to stay close to grill sites as space permits so grilles can rest in their car while they watch their fire overnight. We will not have electricity or water hookups available on site so please plan accordingly if you will want those.
