Show off your grilling talents!
Individuals, families, or teams of friends and coworkers are encouraged to enter the Community’s Best Burger Challenge. The competition will start on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at 3:00pm. Winners receive $500 donated to the nonprofit of their choosing. Second place will win $100 and third place $50, respectively, to the nonprofits of their choice. Entry into the competition is $25 and registration is required. Nonprofit organizations interested in entering a team can register at no cost, but advance registration is still required.
Each team will be responsible for their own grilling supplies and must bring the following: A charcoal grill (no gas grill allowed), wood, wood pellets, or charcoal, utensils for grilling, all seasonings and ingredients, coolers, and lawn chairs. Grill Games will provide two pounds of hamburger and containers for the finished product to be submitted to the judges at 4:00pm. Four hamburgers will need to be submitted for judging at 6:00pm. Burger Judges will judge flavor, texture, and presentation. Teams wishing to give samples to the general public should bring plates or containers for that purpose.
