BBQ challenge calls on Barrie grillers

Grill merchants of all flavours are invited to tease the taste buds of barbecue devotees at Barrie Cares Barbecue Challenge, being held in conjunction with the Barrie Jazz and Blues Festival.
This year’s festival runs from June 9-20, with the BBQ challenge heating up June 18-19. The grill fest will appeal to amateur chefs cooking up a storm in backyards across the city, says challenge and festival organizer Robin Munro.
So, what’s on the menu for judges to sample? Grillers are invited to produce their best pulled-pork, side ribs, chicken, brisket, or BBQ sauce. Prizes will be awarded in each category.
Aspiring grill champs are required to pay $10 to enter, for kids five and under it’s $5. Proceeds will go to three local charities: The (CFB) Borden Family Resource Centre, the Barrie Police Association Kids and Cops Charity Golf Tournament for Paediatric Care, 
and The Canadian Cancer Society for Prostate Cancer Research.
The challenge wraps up on Father’s Day, perhaps a fitting date considering the relation between men and their grills.

Due to food-preparing rules, all entries must cooked offsite. Entries are to be submitted in a recyclable container or a re-usable plastic container.
