There is nothing like a barbeque contest to ring in the Spring season. On Saturday, March 27th, Sheepshead Bay hosts Grillin' On the Bay 2010, which includes The Brooklyn Chili Smack Down, a people's choice chili contest.
Set to benefit St. Mark's School of Sheepshead Bay, Grillin' On The Bay 2010 is calling all barbeque and chili lovers around the city to help support a local school and the hardworking, meat-loving BBQ teams. $10 gets you unlimited chili, while additional BBQ, beer, non-alcoholic beverages, and other foods are also available for purchase, thanks to the sponsorship of RUB BBQ restaurant.
If competing is more your style, Grillin' On The Bay also welcomes cooks looking to participate in the barbeque and chili contests. Enter any of the four grilling categories: chicken, fish, pork ribs, or chef's choice - or all four if you are feeling ultra-competitive. Entrance fees range from $75 to $125, which could prove to be well worth the expense, as cash and other fabulous prizes are awarded to the winners.
If chili is your specialty, the Brooklyn Chili Smack Down is more your event. Free to enter, this chili contest is judged by the people, and the winner receives a $100 cash prize. Open to creativity, your chili can be composed of any variety of ingredients you desire; you call it chili, they will call it chili. Fish chili anyone?
