Do you make your own barbecue sauce?
If you’re a barbecue fan and you have a killer sauce recipe, you have a chance to win bragging rights and 15 minutes of fame. D.B.A. Barbecue is hosting a sauce contest on May 28 (3-5 p.m.). A panel of judges will choose a winner and diners will select a “people’s choice” winner. The winning sauce will be available at the restaurant during the month of June.
Interested? You’ll have to get on the ball because the entry deadline is tomorrow (May 26). To enter or for additional information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Only 20 entries will be accepted. Contestants will need to supply a minimum of four quarts of sauce, the recipe and a sample to the restaurant by noon on May 28. The sauce must use a ketchup base.
Even if you don’t enter, you can attend the contest and weigh-in on the people’s choice winner. What better way to celebrate National Barbecue Month?
