Barbecue is growing in the Northeast. The proof is in the numbers. More teams are competing and festival attendance grows every year. Last year 50 teams fired up their cookers and the crowd grew to over 16,000. This year’s goal is for 60 teams to pit their barbecue skills against some sharp competition for bragging rights and a portion of the prize money. Limiting to 50 teams will mean a better contest atmosphere so we can take care of contestants. Our event is a NY State Championship. This event features a NEBS four category contest on Saturday and a traditional four category KCBS contest on Sunday. 

For detailed information download both the Contest Application and the Cooks Info Sheet, which can be downloaded here.

This event counts toward the NEBS Classic Barbecue and NEBS Ken Dakai Team of the Year.
