Big Bad BBQ Battle slated Aug. 25 as Boydton marks birthday
SoVaNow.com / June 06, 2012Calling all amateur barbeque chefs … there’s going to be a showdown in Boydton on Saturday, Aug. 25. Boydton’s Bicentennial celebration continues with the Big Bad BBQ Battle in Boydton. If your secret sauce is the best around, bring it on. Or if your fire department’s ribs are to die for, this is the event you have been waiting for. Maybe your church’s chicken barbeque is well known, come out and defend your honor. The individual category and Grand Prize will be cash — lots of cash.
Cooks (or groups) who want to join the competition need to apply and pay an entry fee of $20. Bring your own equipment and set up as early as needed on Saturday morning. Judging will begin at 5:00 p.m. Well-known local chefs will be judges and will be tasting pork, and chicken categories. No, we didn’t skip dessert. If you think you make the best homemade ice cream around, bring a sample and you just might go home with a nice prize. Plan to say for dinner because contestants will be selling their entries, following the competition.
In addition to barbeque, beans, slaw and ice cream, the event will feature local bands and folks will be dancing in the streets of Boydton.
