Kosher consumers, start your grills. You have the entire summer to prepare.
The first annual southern New England kosher BBQ championship has been set for Sunday, September 7, 2014. The competition is to be hosted by Congregation Beth El in Fairfield, Connecticut.
Local TV and radio stations will be broadcasting live on site, since the event coincides with the 375th anniversary of the town of Fairfield. More than 3,000 people are expected to attend. Admission is a donation of two canned goods, which will go to the local shelter.
Open to barbecue ‘enthusiasts’ as well as ‘casual backyard grillers’ the contest will be held outside in a day-long event sanctioned by the World Kosher BBQ Championship in Memphis Tennessee.
