Shelby County Shindig BBQ Cook-off Set for July 15th

 In Current News

Follow the Smoke to the Shelby County Shindig!

Teams will compete for the Best Ribs and Sauce in Shelby County.  Other categories for the competition include Chef’s Choice (whatever can be cooked on a grill) and People’s Choice.  The public is invited to a Tasting Party from 4-5:30pm ($10) to vote for the best Boston Butt  prepared on site by the cook teams.  Each Team may consist of up to five members.  Call the SCAC office at 205.669.0044 for more information on entering your team.  Mr. Van Sykes of Bob Sykes BBQ is the lead judge for the event.

The event is an annual joint fundraiser for the Shelby County Arts Council and the South Shelby Chamber of Commerce.  Funds raised are used by both organizations for scholarships and outreach programs in the Shelby County community.  April Stone, Executive Director of South Shelby Chamber of Commerce said “our members look forward to this event.  Many have competition cook teams that sign up and some are just a group of backyard grillers who want to have fun and support two worth causes.”

Everyone may join the fun from 1:00m to 7:00 pm in Downtown Columbiana.  Follow the signs for parking and hop on the trolley.  Live music begins at 1:00pm. There will be a Kid’s Area, Vendors and a Outdoor Beverage Stand hosted by Bernie’s on Main.  Bring a chair (but not a cooler) for a family friendly afternoon in the beautiful town of Columbiana, AL.
