The dog days of summer are here, and Scheels Home & Hardware is heating up its grills and competitive spirit for the 4th Annual Scheels ND BBQ Championship.
On Saturday, September 26th at Scheels Home & Hardware on 13th Ave. S. in Fargo, local and regional contestants will have the opportunity to show off their savory, slow-cooked skills and compete in four different categories: BBQ’d ribs, pulled pork, chicken and brisket. After sampling, outstanding BBQ’ers from each category and a People’s Choice winner will be crowned. Combined scores from all four categories will be used to determine an overall Grand Champion. $5,000 in prize money, bragging rights, and a shiny Scheels ND BBQ Championship trophy is up for grabs!
Spectators and BBQ connoisseurs are invited to sample and cast their vote for the People’s Choice Award for a $3 donation to local non-profit organizations and check out demos from Weber, Traeger and Big Green Egg. Plus, register to win a variety of door-prizes.
For those interested in competing, registration is currently open for the 4th Annual Scheels ND BBQ Championship competition at http://ndbbq.com/sign-up/.
