Bass Pro Shops in East Ridge will be the site of the 2nd annual BBQ Competition presented by the American Culinary Federation of Chattanooga.
The event will be held in the parking lot on Saturday, August 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be live music and free samples of barbecue. There is no charge for the event.
According to information from the culinary federation’s Website, pitmasters will set up their smokers and various equipment around the Bass Pro Shops at about 7 a.m. on Saturday. Each pitmaster will have as many as four people on their team.
Whatever the competitors are smoking on their grills will go before a panel of esteemed chefs for judgement. Once the judges make their decision on the best smoked pork, beef, chicken, etc., the pitmaster may give away some of the morsels for tasting.
