The event was sanctioned by the Steak Cookoff Association and featured multiple steak categories along with special categories for ribs, turkey, and Bloody Mary’s that went through a rigorous judging process.

With nearly $40,000 in cash and prizes awarded, grill masters worked through the day in a competitive, but fun atmosphere. Brad Orrison with the Shed BBQ and Blues Joint said, “We had over 30 kid competitors that are grilling. It’s a family atmosphere and people out here, they’re fierce competitors. They are here to win. So, there’s a certain amount of professionalism from the barbecue world, that really, it’s your chance to see it.”

Sponsors for the showdown include the National Turkey Federation, Pepsi, and Yeti.
