Default Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ Cook-Off, Glen Ellyn, Il., Sept. 8

A great time was had by all last year... so this fall we’re going to do it again!

We are once more seeking certified rib judges, volunteer helpers, sponsors... and cooks who want to put their grilling skills to the test in the 4th Annual Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ Competition.

Categories are Ribs, Best Dish and People's Choice BBQ Sauce. Best dish can be anything at all from grilled bacon wrapped stuffed hot dogs... to grilled pineapple cakes... to soft tacos with red snapper and tomatillo-avocado salsa. Best dish is all about your best dish on the grill.

This tasty experience is for ALL teams, regardless of experience. This is a non-sanctioned contest.

As been the case since 2009, this community event is a great launch pad for “local” and “new teams” to cook in a fantastic learning environment for honing experience and skills. It’s also a great place for “seasoned” teams to try out new recipes and techniques.

The event will be held in the Glenwood Ave. parking lot - Downtown Glen Ellyn [MAP] on September 8, 2012.

Entries in the Ribs and Best Dish categories must be able to accommodate four judges. Best BBQ Sauce must be homemade and will be people's choice. Prizes will be determined by the number of competitors; there is a small entry fee.

Teams should bring uncooked and unseasoned pork ribs (spares or baby backs), and/or uncooked and unseasoned ingredients for Best Dish. All dishes must be cooked on site and the protein portion of each dish must start raw. Contestants must provide their own equipment; charcoal and gas grills/smokers are welcome, electric grills/smokers and open pits are not.

A 9x9 Styrofoam “Clamshell” will be provided for each dish. Garnish for Ribs is optional, but if used is limited Green Leaf Lettuce and or Green Parsley only.

Teams may arrive as early as 8:00 AM and begin cooking once their coolers have been inspected.

Judging for best dish will be at 2:30pm and judging for best pork ribs will be at 4:30pm (these times may be subject to change). There will be a 5 minute window on either side of turn in times.

Interested in participating? Great! Here are the 2012 BBQ rules and sign-up sheet!

** Please make checks payable to Bridge Communities, Inc. and send snail mail to my attention at: 744 Willis St. Glen Ellyn, Il. 60137**

Be sure to check our web home for more information, any changes or updates to this contest. And mark your calendars for Saturday, September 8, 2012!

Thanks Cmohr74.

Hey Bill, thanks for your support! Either way, just glad to have you as part of our cook-off.

PT, you should mark your calendar. We've just booked Buzz Kilman and the Blues Rocket Scientists. It's gonna be a great time this year!
