2017 contest information
PLEASE SEE OUR FACEBOOK PAGE (BBQ GIVES BACK KCBS CONTEST) FOR PICTURES AND INFORMATION ABOUT THE INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF MONEY AND FOOD THAT WAS COLLECTED AND DONATED FROM TEAMS AND JUDGES – THANK YOU TO ALL – YOU REALLY DID “GIVE BACK” AND SHOWED THE BEST OF THE BBQ FAMILY!!
*Very important info for all teams regarding the “giving back” part of our contest – our contest is benefiting 2 different groups and we want to invite all of you to help us with this worthwhile effort.
Operation BBQ Relief will be receiving a monetary donation from our contest. If interested, your team may make a tax deductible cash or check donation to OBR at the time of team check in to increase the amount of this donation. We all know how wonderful the family of bbq is and this organization shows the very spirit of that family with every disaster they respond to. For more information, visit operationbbqrelief.org
Our contest is an official KCBS FEED250 contest. This means that KCBS pays for pork butts to be purchased and given to every team to cook, chop, pan and turn in to be donated to a local food bank. Team Thanksgiving is the local food bank that will be receiving this donation. Every team will be given one pork butt to cook. You do not need to season, inject or such, just cook it, chop it, pan it (in the pan we will give you) and then turn it in after all 4 meat turn ins are completed. Team Thanksgiving will then take the meat and properly care for it until it is given to families in need. That is one way that we will help the food bank.
Another way we can help the food bank is by donating dry and canned goods. We are asking that every team bring one or more grocery bags of dry and canned goods which will be collected and given to the food bank for distribution. We are also asking all judges to bring bags so we may have a lot to give Team Thanksgiving!
Tyson Foods is donating up to 250 pounds of chicken leg quarters to the food bank. We thank them for this generous donation. We also thank Virginia Poultry Federation for their assistance in securing this donation.
Delivery complete! Thanks Tyson. You literally filled the freezer at Team Thanksgiving! 11 cases of chicken leg quarters = lots of people fed!
