Arizona State Championship BBQ Cook-off, November 7th - 8th
November 7th - 8th, 2008 Pulte Homes, AZBarbeque & Whiskey Ranch will be hosting the Sun City Festival BBQ Throwdown & Balloon Festival.
This event will be an "Official Triple Crown of BBQ" event as well as an "Official State Championship" event.
PUT IT ON YOUR CALENDAR TODAY!!
This will be a KCBS Sanctioned contest.
Merl & Carol Whitebook will be our KCBS reps. Merl and Carol are great people and great KCBS Reps, so we are very honored to have them back out representing KCBS at our event.
Put the dates on your Calendar NOW. The Registration form is available here <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.azbarbeque.com/forums/2008-nove...off/entry-form/">http://www.azbarbeque.com/forums/2008-n ... ntry-form/</a><!-- m --> or e-mail us at <!-- e --><a href="mailto:Cookoff@AZBarbeque.com">Cookoff@AZBarbeque.com</a><!-- e --> and we will e-mail it out to you.
Once again, we will be doing the Public Sampling out at the event, normal 50/50 payout.
Pulte does have Whiskey Ranch out there giving out free Chicken and Pulled Pork sandwiches to the public, so if you did more Brisket and Ribs, you would have lots of activity. The Cook-off we did for them this past February, all of the BBQ Competitors ran out of food early.
Right now, the prize fund is $5000 to start with, our goal is to get enough sponsors to push that to $10,000 - $15,000.
Electric, Water & Ice will be included in your entrance fee.
This will be very similar to the Pulte event we did earlier this year and Pulte really is a great sponsor as they really take care of everything from the BBQ Competitors to the pubilc, so it will be very first class. Pulte has Guaranteed the Prize fund and provided a letter to KCBS stating this. All Prize money will be paid in CASH at the awards ceremony. All monies will be jointly handled by both AZBarbeque & Whiskey Ranch for this event.
They will have a big Balloon festival and arts & crafts festival going on at the same time, so lots of fun things happening out there for everyone.
Register before September 15th, 2008 and get a $50 discount as well as be entered into the Early Bird Drawing for some great prizes.
If you will be bringing an RV, you need to register before September 15th as well. We have to submit site plans to Pulte on the 16th of September.
Regular space size is 20 X 20. If you need a larger space, we can accomodate them before the Early Brid Deadline.
This event is on the Far West Side of Phoenix, you never even have to come into Phoenix to get here.
