This saturday, March 25th, 14 of the tri-state area's top pitmasters will square off at Grillin' on the Bay, a one-day, 4-category grilling contest sanctioned by the New England Barbecue Society and sponsored by RUB BBQ.

This event could not have happened without the generous support of our sponsors which include HawgeyesBBQ, Dizzy Pig BBQ, Esposito Meats, Manny's Pit Bull Hot Sauce, Spicewine Ironworks, HomeBBQ, and 2 Fat Polocks BBQ.
All of our judges are volunteers who are donating their time to make this contest happen. Robert, the St Marks Sports Program and I all appreciate you for being a part of this. Thanks-- and see you on Saturday!
