Big Bad BBQ Battle returns to Boydton

SoVaNow.com / March 06, 2013
The 2013 Big Bad BBQ Battle in Boydton is gearing up and August 24 will be another fun day in Boydton. Last year’s competition brought out a small number of competing teams and a fair sized crowd to watch. This year, the planners have their sights on a large number of competing teams and an even larger crowd of spectators.

“We are going to have entertainment, historic tours, a corn hole tournament, arts and crafts, a kid’s zone, lots of food and of course plenty of barbeque,” promised Historic Boydton’s Renaissance, Inc. President Will Ober. “The 2012 Battle was our first and we have made plans to make our 2013 event bigger and better.”

Teams who want to compete this year must fill out an application and get a copy of the official rules, available at Boydton Town Hall or on line at http://www.boydton.org. Teams are limited to five members and the competition will include ribs, butts/shoulders and brisket. The application fee is $50, which includes entry into all three categories and a 20-foot space to set up the cooking equipment. All contestants are urged to sell their barbeque and teams will be prepared to sell by noon. The judging will begin at 3:00 p.m. and the impressive slate of judges from last year will be returning, with an addition or two.

Prizes for the barbeque cookoff will be $1000 for the Best of the Best winner, $500 for first place in each of the three categories and the Showmanship Award, $200 for second place in each of the three categories, in addition to trophies. HBR is seeking sponsors for the tournament and donors can contact Town Hall or Charlie Reamy,
