FOLEY —The South Baldwin Chamber Foundation is cooking up a whole lot of fun while raising funds supporting Foley area schools during the Annual BBQ & Blues Cook-Off! On Saturday, March 16, in Heritage Park, located at the intersection of Highway 59 & 98 in Downtown Foley, festival-goers will enjoy award-winning barbeque, popular blues bands, craft and retail vendors, children’s activities and silent auction bidding.
As a part of the Alabama BBQ Trail, cook team competition rules follow guidelines of the Alabama Barbeque Association. Competition categories are: Chicken, Ribs, Boston Butts, Sauce and Anything “Butt” which includes exotic items, seafood and desserts. The team earning the most “People’s Choice” donations will be awarded “Baldwin’s Best Q.” The cooking competition is open to everyone (backyard and professional) with the $100 entry fee covering all competition categories and up to six team members. Deadline for registration is March 1.
For those who have an appetite for more than cook team samples, the South Baldwin Chamber Foundation will be selling barbeque sandwiches from LA Barbeque and pre-cooked Boston Butts. Beer, wine, soft drinks and water will also be for sale, along with the official event T-shirts.
Special thanks to Riverview Turf as the Presenting Sponsor of the BBQ & Blues Cook-Off! All proceeds benefit the South Baldwin Chamber Foundation to support local schools through programs and partnerships that enrich education, develop leadership and better the community.
