“Where the BBQ Meets the Beach”
On Saturday, January 26, 2013 thirty teams will take to their grills, forks in hand, secret recipes folded and stashed in pockets, all for the glory of the title and the satisfaction of knowing they’ve helped to raise a significant amount of money for Step Up For Soldiers. The competition will start with a level playing field: everyone will have the same meats, be in the same location and have the same time constraints. But thrown into the mix will be individual rubs, sauces or marinades, grill temperatures and methods of cooking that will leave someone going home with braggin’ rights for the next year.
This year’s cook-off will step it up a notch with a pre-contest party on Friday evening featuring two bands, Train Wreck and Beachbilly Brothers, along with food and drink with all open to the public for a nominal admission fee.
The cook-off will be held at the lake in Carolina Beach at the junction of Lake Park Blvd. and Atlanta Avenue and everyone is welcome. Admission on Saturday is free. Tickets can be purchased to sample the BBQs after the double-blind judging is completed. There will be two bands, The Cut and headliner Medusa Stone, in addition to raffles, arts and craft vendors plus more food and drink for purchase. Gates open at 11:00am and prizes will be awarded at 2:00pm. All to benefit Step Up For Soldiers.
