Grillin' on the Bay: March 25th, 2006

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 is New York City's first sanctioned bbq contest and will have a proclamation from Brooklyn Borough President, Marty Markowitz, proclaiming it NYC's official bbq contest.

The event is a fundraiser for the St Mark Sports Program which provides children from the ages of 5-16 with the chance to participate in athletics programs and also hosts a Special Olympics Basketball team.

The teams (as of today 3/22) are:
Sir Sauce A lot
Purple Turtle Catering
Cockeye BBQ
Smokey Mike's Brooklyn BBQ
Beer Belly Porkers
Smokin Dave's Tailgate Party
Big Island BBQ
BBQ Brethren/Brothers in Smoke
Righteous Urban BBQ
Front Street Smoke House
Water Front Ale House
South Shore Smokers
Josh Ozerky BBQ

Grillin' on the Bay
Corner of East 18th Street and Avenue Z
The B-49 and B-4 buses stop nearby.
By subway, take the 'Q' to the Sheepshead Bay stop.

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!

You should get in touch with the real deal of "Churrasco Gaúcho".
The ultimate "Churrasco Gaúcho" that you may get is the one made with ground fire (a fire made in the ground with dry wood) and where the meat is staked with wooden sticks made at the time.

I love that! It's hard to find around here, though there are churrascarias. I never know when to stop! A few Caipirinhas, too, and I'm happy!
