Smoke on the Water Productions is looking for a grilling team that’s willing to do 4 demos in Atlantic City.  These would be at 1 and 3 PM Sat the 16th and Sunday the 17th.   They will provide the proteins, provide a hotel room, and compensate the team for travel expenses.   They would like the teams to provide samples, and will take care of permits and supply a crew to help hand out the samples.

If you are interested, please contact Ronnie Cates for more information here.

Calling all future Grill Masters!

Kids Cook – We all WIN!

Kid’s Que Entry Contest

Do your kids want to get in on BBQ competitions?
Do your kids already participate in Kid’s Que at some of the events?
Did you know that multiple of our NEBS events feature a Kid’s Que?

We want to help your kids take center stage! In the words of Guy Fieri, “Cooking with kids is not just about ingredients, recipes and cooking. It’s about harnessing imagination, empowerment and creativity.”

Judges at Brookline NH Cook-off were caught saying things like “WOW”, “those can’t be kid entries”, “that was amazing”….

Last year Ridgefield Gone Country – Ridgefield, CT; Annual Brookline Tailgate & BBQ / Grilling Cook-off – Brookline, NH; I Love BBQ & Music Festival – Lake Placid, NY; and Otter River BBQ Cook-off – Templeton, MA all offered a chance for the kids to take the stage. Available events (so far) are Brookline NH, Lake Placid NY, with Otter River MA pending…. Our sanctioning committee is also looking into a couple more opportunities with organizers.

We want to see your kids get involved. NEBS wants to see the promoting of BBQ go even further; let’s get more kids involved, let’s get the next generation of BBQ going in the early years.

Enter and “help” your kids enter to WIN the entry fee at a 2017 Kid’s Q Contest!
