March 23: Grillin’ On The Bay and The Brooklyn Chili Smackdown!

It’s back. New York City’s original barbecue and grilling contest is back, and so is the chili!

Come on out to Grillin’ On The Bay and the Brooklyn Chili Smackdown.

Saturday, March 23, 2013, at 10:00 a.m., the gates will open and thousands of hungry Sheepshead Bay residents  to a score of barbecue teams working their meats. Once the teams have got our neighbors salivating, visitors will get to feast on the award-winning barbecue of Three Men And A Baby Back, who just happened to win first place in Grilling at the Jack Daniels Invitational World Championship 2012.

But we’re not stopping there – check out the amazing ribs from Brooklyn’s newest barbecue joint, Fletcher’s Brooklyn Barbecue!

Still not satisfied?

Join in our People’s Choice Chili Smackdown. For only $10 you can sample and judge from some of the most outrageous chili every offered up in Brooklyn. You choose the winner of this contest!

Need something to wash it all down? What’s a barbecue without beer and bourbon?

Spend some time among the barbecue teams as they vie for cash, prizes, the New England Barbecue Society’s Team of the Year placement and the chance to compete at the world’s biggest and baddest barbecue contest, The World Food Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada! You may even spot a few people you’ve seen on the Food Network!

Don’t forget, Grillin’ On The Bay helps support St. Mark School in our own Sheepshead Bay.  Help one of our neighborhood’s oldest institutions recover after Superstorm Sandy! The event is free, but do a little shopping with our vendors and buy some food! And there will be many, many other surprises. Check it out.
