can you bring in anything to modify the Grill? What type of Charcoal? You supplying all clean-up, trash bags, ash tranport containers etc so that it truly is Kosher? If thats the case, you would just have to show up cook, leave right? The grills become the Contestants to own? WSM are avail? What size? Thanks

Go to their website and read. They answer all of your questions. After reading, I know we would not cook this contest.

Jimmy,
Grills are new Weber 22.5 One Touch Silver. No access to anyting else other than a firebrick to use, you cannot modify the grill. This is truly Kosher and we are supplying everything, including grill thermometers, instant read thermometers, chimneys and all utensils will be provided for everyone. And of course brisket, 2 racks of ribs, 2 lbs of beans and the pot to cook the beans in. All ingredients for your secret rubs or sauces can be found on our ingredients list which we will prepare for you and have ready when you arrive. Anything not on it that you may need we will try our best to get. Trash containers are available next to each contestant and we ask you to clean up after yourself but leave the grills for us to clean. Charcoal is not determined yet, either Kingsford or lump. Basically all you need to do is bring the matches. hope you find it interesting enough to be one of the founding teams.

Hi,

I'm sure that Marvin will jump in to correct me if need be, but I believe that they will pay your entry fee to the World Championships if you are the GC and I don't believe that you take home the grills, but they some of them may be part of the prize structure that is still being worked on.

I was really interested in Hava Na Grilla in PA. I'm glad that this is so close and I'm going to try to swing it. It looks unique, challenging and fun.

Yeah, you don't keep then. Just furnished for kosher reasons I believe.

I see it notes "part of our proceeds will go to hunger relief charities right here on Long Island, including Long Island Cares, ”the INN” (Interfaith Nutrition Network), Hatzilu, Rock Can Roll and M’yad l’yad

That's cool..

Also looks like under $100 in provided meats and other supplies... Will the balance of remaining entry fee all go to the charities noted ?

Vinny,
Costs of Kosher meats way exceeds $100 and is closer to $200. Also Weber Grills and cost of condiments brings it over the $250 entry fee; no money is made from the teams participating. Funds come from our Corporate Sponsors. Fairway Market is the title sponsor (PR release coming soon) along with Home Depot, Costco, and others mentioned on the website. Along with food sales from our cafe and fees from the hot dog eating contest, and basketball skills contest, all money is distributed to all the charities listed including the host, Temple Beth Torah of Westbury (501C Charity). This is a completely non-profit event and all donations are tax deductable.

Part of the rules of Kosher is that the equipment can ONLY be used for kosher products. Therefore we will store them and take them out next year so they can be used again as Kosher Grills.

Because they are good quality Weber's and we are only using them once a year...your grandkids could still be using them!

100% correct. We pay your entry fee for Memphis. We are working on a prize structure that the winners in both Ribs and Brisket can each take the two grills with them. This is not confirmed yet (ever try working with committee's) but it is something everyone would like.... WAIT... I am going on the record and saying: Yes, the Winners of each meat category get two grills and the grand champion will get two grills also! Now, this is first come first served and we have about 10 slots left....really would like to get some 'masters' into this competition.

Great PR release today as Fairway Market announced they are the title sponsor for the LI Kosher BBQ Championship. Every championship can do so much more with a good sponsor and now this championship has a GREAT sponsor. Way to go Fairway Market.

Right now we have 18 teams and it looks like only one is a BBQ Brethren member. Most are going to be first timers who are excited about just being able to get into this type of competition. Teams out of Brooklyn and Atlanta have competed in the Kosher Birmingham and/or Memphis championships before. What I will tell you is that when it comes to enthusiasm they are off the chain. Think of when you were getting ready to compete in your first competition, it is probably the same level of excitement.

Hi,

Marvin and his crew were down at WilliePallooza and talking to teams and seeing how things were operating.

They've decided to bring in Linda Mullane to Rep the event, which is great news. I'm sure that it will be run smoothly and professionally.

If you're interested, they are still accepting sign-ups. It should be a fun, unique event.

On a side note, if anyone is free June 10th and wouldn't mind lending a hand, I could use some help competing here.

Thanks!

Eric

Sounds like a unique and fun time. If I did not live 2500 miles away I would do it.

I even thought of the perfect team name for a gentile team.

I believe that they will be adding chicken next year, but they are modeling their event on the Kosher World Championships in Memphis for their first year and I believe there is no chicken category there.

Hi,

Due to some unfortunate circumstances, one of the teams had to drop out.

That means that they are no longer sold out and one slot is now open.

It would be nice to see some more Brethren at this event and it should be a great contest for people just getting into competitions. All you have to do is show up with a tent, a chair and your recipes. Grills provided, meat provided, etc.

Contact Marvin for more info.
