What to do this weekend: Grillin’ On The Bay & Brooklyn Chili Smackdown

Date April 3, 2009

If you’re not going to Citi Field Saturday and if you love barbecue and grilling and you’ve always been curious about what competition cooking involves, get out to Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn this Saturday to watch Smoke In Da Eye defend their Grillin’ on the Bay 2008 title.  Sanctioned by the New England Barbecue Society and sponsored by RUB BBQ & Butternuts Beer & Ale, Grillin’ on the Bay is a 4 category (chicken breast, fish, pork and chef’s choice) grilling competition (not slow-smoked BBQ).


This is a great way to learn about competition cooking up close and personal and starting at noon, you can purchase some of the freshly-grilled food.  And if that’s not enough, starting at 1pm, $10 gets you all-you-can-eat chili in the “Brooklyn Chili Smackdown,” a people’s choice chili contest. I attended and judged this event last year and if you love grilling and barbecue, this event is not to be missed.

When: This Saturday, starting at 12pm.  Chili tasting begins at 1pm.  Awards given out at 4:30pm.
Where: (Google Map) Corner of East 18th Street & Avenue Z, Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, just a 20-30 minute ride from Manhattan on the B or Q train to Sheepshead Bay
