Showcase your culinary talent at Citizens Bank Park on August 23, 2008 when former Phillies Gold Glove winner Garry Maddox hosts his 7th Barbecue Challenge. This fun-filled charity fundraiser is presented by Lockheed Martin. Contestants can enter in the Restaurant/Caterer Division or the Pit Master Division, and cooking categories include chicken, ribs, and chef’s choice. The day ends with a final “rib-off” in which all competitors—restaurants and individuals alike—pit their ribs against Garry’s with the winner earning a trip to the 2008 World Series. One entry fee covers participation in all categories. For more information or to register, please call 856-756-0222 or email ygapcamden@hotmail.com.

All proceeds from the event benefit the Youth Golf & Academics Program, a 501(c)(3) organization founded by Garry Maddox to provide academic support and enrichment services to children who reside in troubled city neighborhoods. The Barbecue Challenge is open to the public from 1 to 4 p.m. with live music by Three Legged Fox, children’s entertainment, and a classic car show. The event is sponsored by Aramark, Phillies Charities, Hatfield Quality Meats, CBS 3 and Philly 57, Turkey Hill, CBS Radio, and the Daily News.

Call asap, they are capping the number of teams for the first time and all returning teams get first dibbs. It is a BLAST though. It conflicts with New Holland which might open some spots. I'll be there.

Hey Ant, sorry man. I got your pm, been meaning to reply but got busy. I'm taking 6 racks w/ me, plus whatever Hatfield gives us. They're saying 10 lbs (2 racks), but it's been more like a case in the past couple years. 'Course they were frozen too... had to thaw them out on top of the firebox. Still working on chef's choice too. See you in 2 weeks
