New for 2013 - $10,000 Prize Money

With the new prize purse of $10,000, the 50 slots for the Beltway BBQ Showdown Contest will go quickly! Registration is underway and I would love to take this opportunity to invite you to participate. Join us at the Tucker Road Athletic Complex, 1770 Tucker Road, Fort Washington, MD 20744 for the 7th Annual Beltway BBQ Showdown State Championship, scheduled for May 31 & June 1, 2013. This event is an officially sanctioned Kansas City Barbeque Society (http://www.mncppcapps.org/pgparks/disclaimer.html?http://www.kcbs.us/) (KCBS) event and the winner will be eligible to compete in the American Royal Contest in Kansas City.

Two favorite programs for the visiting crowds give opportunities to taste your fabulous cooking skills. For the Buck-A-Bone program we ask you to cook 10 racks of ribs, which we supply, in your own special way (In appreciation for your grill time a $100 discount will be given). The People’s Choice is a sauce contest, winners are voted on by the general public. Provide 32-64 ozs of your secret recipe for the chance to win a $100 prize!

This is an event that gets no love. Granted they had some issues in years past but if this year is run like last year (minus the torrential rains) it's a good contest.

We're in. In 2007, this was the first contest (different location) we ever cooked, looking forward to going back.

We cook this comp every year. Just like Who Are Those Guys, this was our first ever contest when it was next to FedEx Field in 2008. I remember being set up next to a pre-retired, pre-RV, pre-Yellow Jambo Mike Richter of Chix Swine and Bovine. Even though it was 114 degrees with the heat index we had a blast and were back next year.

This year the prize money went up to $10,000! Jonathan has been trying to get the money up for years and it finally happened. :eusa_clap

There are a few of us that have stayed Loyal to Jonathan and go every year. Jonathan Jones is all about the teams and he makes sure we have the best time. I hope to see some new teams this year!
