Mark your calendars: The Annual Southern New England Kosher BBQ Championship will take place on Sunday, August 30, 2015, from 11am - 6pm. This competition, which is for both barbecue enthusiasts as well as casual backyard grillers, is sanctioned by the World Kosher BBQ Championship in Memphis, Tennessee and hosted by Congregation Beth El, Fairfield, CT.
With approximately 30 BBQ teams, entertainment throughout the day, kosher eats, kids' play zone and activities, local TV and radio stations on site AND this wonderful gathering of artists, the results are sure to be a day like no other. Taking place completely outdoors, it's fun, food and activity for the whole family! With such a mass effort it's no wonder the estimated attendance is 3,000+ people.
Photos taken of the event, taken by Seth Block, can be viewed on our Facebook page.
