WilliePallooza BBQ April 6th and 7th

8 posts in this topic

I've met a number of SOL members through the BBQ world, so as an FYI, there is a competition on April 6th and 7th at the Brentwood VFW to benefit the West Islip Breast Cancer Foundation and Island Harvest.

 

There is a people's choice chili contests from 2- 4 on the 6th (saturday) and then the real fun starts with the overnight cooking with the turn ins starting at noon on Sunday.

 

 

Unfortunately American Royal trophy winner and SOL member Scotto (BBQ Brethren team) will be competing in Dover, so they won't be around to defend their Grand Championship, but if you do swing by, my team is Buenos Diaz BBQ. While the Brentwood VFW is not the toniest of venues (this isn't prettied up for the public) it helps the local vets not to mention the two charities.

 

 

Some of the past grand champions who have won this event will be competing and are known nationally. So if you have ever seen Pitmasters, this is exactly that type of competition.

 

 

 

Just one note, the board of health is restrictive in feeding the public and Sunday morning through the Brisket turn-in (2pm) is crazy time for the teams, so we can't interact with the public, but other than that, if you identify yourself from SOL at my pit, I'd be glad to share what food we have leftover (not turned into the judges) and talk BBQ technique.

 

 

Thank you for reading. Carry on.
