One day before the Barbecue Cookoff, if that’s not enough, Historic Richmond Town will also be hosting the third annual New York City Chili Cookoff! Executive director of the two events, Ed Wiseman, said,
During the Barbecue Cookoff, teams will be competing in four categories that include chicken, pork ribs, pork butt and brisket. Of the twenty teams that are signed up, there will be a $2500 grand prize and the chance to get into two of the country’s hottest grilling contests: the American Royal Invitational in Kansas City, Mo., and the Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational Barbecue in Lynchburg, Tenn.
“I think the urban snobbery is gone. When it comes to food and great eats, the walls are breaking down.”
Certainly, the cookoff will be a sight to behold – and one to taste if you’re lucky!
