About the event
The 10th Charity BBQ & Chili Competition is a fund raiser hosted by the Firefighter's Charity of Central Florida. This fund raiser helps fund our Florian Fund. This fund provides financial assistance to local firefighters enduring catastrophic crisis such as PTSD and cancer treatments. We are pleased to announce we are approved as a Backyard Cooker Florida BBQ Association sanctioned event. For our local teams, we have a HomeTown cooking division for those teams that may not compete on a regular basis.
We are awarding over $5,000 in prizes and trophies!
This two day event features an all new St.Patricks & Craft Beer Festival, Cornhole Tournament, and Special Item Cook with free concerts on Friday.
The fun continues Saturday morning with Bloody Mary specials and southern style breakfast at the Backdraft Grill and then it really heats up with our Chili Cookoff starting that morning and our main BBQ competition in the afternoon. Live music all day with great grilled food, full liquor bars, firetrucks, hot motorcycles, and much more!
The BBQ competition is limited to 24 teams. The chili competition is limited to 30 teams. Sign up early to ensure your space.
UPDATE: As of 2/7/23 WE ARE AT CAPACITY WITH BBQ TEAMS. We are accepting wait list entries. HOWEVER, we are still accepting Pork Butt Peoples Choice only entries and Chili team entries.
