Contestants compete in the Shed Steak and BBQ Showdown

The Shed Barbecue and Blues Joint is known all over the world for their great barbecue. Over the weekend, contestants from 17 states gathered at the Shed for a cook-off for the ages.

It was the fifth year for the Shed Steak and Barbecue Showdown. Contestants were competing for a $1,000 grand prize and a golden ticket to the Steak Association World Championship in Fort Worth, Texas.

Categories included rib, turkey and steak cook-offs along with a Bloody Mary competition.

Steak Cook-Off Association Founder Ken Phillips shared his thoughts on what makes the Shed an ideal location. “It’s really about the comradery. You come here and you go and meet your neighbor and they introduce themselves, offer you whatever they’re cooking, or something to drink and you just make some great friends, you know and the friendship, everyone here is having a fun time.

The Steak Cook-Off World Championship will take place March 9th.
