I just received an email about a upcoming BBQ contest. I won’t be able to make this one, but I was going to post it on the blog for anyone else:
On July 23rd we will kick off the Western Maine BBQ Festival, the new event that everyone has been talking about. Located at the Fryeburg Fair grounds in Fryeburg, Maine (just 15 minutes from North Conway, NH), we offer a beautiful and competitor friendly venue.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by members of the organizing committee, escorted to your large cook site that has easy access to water and electricity, and provided with a schedule of events that include a classic car show, motorcycle show, mechanical bull riding, bands, and demonstrations. With all of that going on, we pledge to you that the heart and soul of this event will be the competitors and the promotion of great BBQ. Once you have settled in, we will be serving to you a lobster dinner with all of the fixin’s. A non seafood dinner option will be available. To make you as comfortable as possible, we offer real clean bathroom facilities conveniently located throughout the venue, showers, a laundry mat, and activities for the kids. A very competitive purse totaling $12,500.00 and as an official state championship, an invitation to the American Royal for the winner will round things out nicely.
The NEBS grilling competition will take place on Saturday, July 23rd and KCBS competition will be on Sunday July 24th.
An application and general information has been included. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
This sounds like a good contest for anyone in the area… let me know if you cook this contest and let me know how it goes!
