King of the Grill (Posted On: Tuesday, July 17, 2012)

This August, one person will be crowned Collingwood’s Ultimate Backyard BBQer!  That person could be you!  ‘Celebrate Collingwood Day’ is a time to celebrate our community and all the great things that make us special. The Collingwood Ultimate Backyard BBQer competition is just one of the yummiest parts….. and we need your help to make it happen.

After a day of judging, one skilled (or lucky) competitor will walk away crowned as Collingwood’s ULTIMATE Backyard BBQ’er! (No, really, a crown is the prize!)

That person might just be you!! You’re excited aren’t you... about the crown that is!

Do you have a Barbeque recipe that you think can hold its own against the area’s self proclaimed grill masters?  Whether you have made something up on the spot, perfected your own creation, or have been preparing your ancestor’s recipe for years; now is the chance to showcase your BBQ skills!

On August 18, 2012, we are hosting the 1st Ever Blues, Brews, & BBQ at the Station in Collingwood’s historic downtown!  We are looking for up to 15 competitors to both compete and prepare additional meat for samples.

Competitors may be individuals or teams; amateur or professional BBQers …. all are welcome.  If you think you have what it takes, sign up today! 

The Collingwood Ultimate BBQ Competition is only one component of a daylong celebration.  Begin the day at the community pancake breakfast at the Farmers’ Market, then plan on staying for the afternoon tea (in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee), and finish up at the Blues Music Festival and the BBQ competition.  There is also a mardi gras style parade, sidewalk sale and wagon rides to complete the day. 

We have an awesome community …. help us celebrate it! Mark the date on your calendar and plan to spend the day downtown... better yet, download the entry form at Downtown Collingwood and show the community that you are KING OF THE GRILL!
