Raider Red Meats Presents Third Annual Barbecue Cook-off
Registration is open for those wanting to participate.
Texas Tech University Raider Red Meats will host the third annual Barbecue Cook-off Aug. 23-24 in the S1 parking lot north of the soccer fields at Texas Tech Parkway and 10th Street, west of University Medical Center. Master and amateur grillers are invited to compete in four divisions – chicken, ribs brisket and beans.
Check-in and set-up begin at noon Friday, with a head cooks’ meeting at 7 p.m. Friday at the hospitality tent. Judging begins Saturday with beans at 11 a.m., chicken at noon, ribs at 1 p.m. and brisket at 3 p.m. Awards will be given out by 5 p.m. at the hospitality tent.
Bradley Price, director of Raider Red Meats, said in the future he hopes the event can serve as an opportunity for community members to come out and enjoy sampling barbecue from the best cooks in the state of Texas. This year the event is open to only participants and judges.
“We were excited about the event’s success last year and hope it will continue to grow,” Price said. “Subsequent events could raise funds for scholarships, research and competitive teams that represent Texas Tech University.”
The entry fee is $125 per team and covers all categories. The registration form and additional information is available at here.
Price is also looking for judges for the event. To volunteer please, contact Shelbi Knisley here.
