Kosher BBQ Story

The BBQ Competition

The Atlanta Kosher BBQ Competition & Festival is part of the National Kosher BBQ Circuit.  Cities included in this Kosher BBQ Circuit: Atlanta, GA, Birmingham, AL, Kansas City, MO, Memphis, TN, Charleston, SC, Charlotte, NC, Chicago, IL, San Antonio, TX, Dallas, TX, Fairfield, CT and Plainview, NY (Long Island).

All the BBQ Teams are supplied with Kosher Grills, Meat, Tools and ingredients which are checked and approved by the Event Kosher Supervisor (a “Mashgiach”).

Everyone starts out on a level playing field and brings their unique BBQ skills and recipes to cook outstanding Kosher BBQ. Then it is up to the Judges and Public to decide the winners.
