This looks to be another great event that is coming to Brook Run Park in Dunwoody.  The BBQ competition will be held Sunday from 11:30 until 3:30 where beef brisket, beef ribs, chicken, and baked beans will be smoked by teams and graded by Kansas City-Style Judges.

Huge amounts of food will be cooked for this competition and we need the community to come out and sample what may have taken many hours to prepare.  The competition will include a kid’s zone with moon bounce, face painting, games, and other great children activities. Live music, entertainment, craft vendors, Purple Hippo Art Studio, contests, kosher sides, and drinks will be on site.

They are expecting over 3,000 spectators and BBQ lovers watching the 25 BBQ teams (including Police and Fire & Rescue BBQ teams) battle it out for BBQ bragging rights.
