Summer BBQ Contest and Event Calendars.

in #bbq6 years ago (edited)

This article links to most of the large associations calendars for this summer's BBQ events, so you can find when and where the BBQ is coming to your area.

Every summer in cities around the globe people gather to celebrate and enjoy local barbecue at nearby events. Local BBQ contests and challenges draw the best restaurants and cooks in town to one place, where you can sample and compare the goods at your leisure. State and County Fairs are also a great place to find new BBQ sources. The absolute best place to sample good BBQ is at one of the many professional BBQ Challenges or competitions, because no one puts more effort into BBQ than up-and-coming contestants that have traveled across the country to compete.

Time to find a local event and sample the some local goods!

I would love to see a BBQ event where you can pay with Bitcoin or Steem.

You can at any of these!
You just need a shift card, it's a visa that spends money out of your coinbase account.
