The BBQ Brethren presents its 7th Annual New York State BBQ Championship at the Maples Bar and Grill in Manorville on August 3. The competition is sanctioned by the New England BBQ Society and Mid-Atlantic BBQ Association.
The East End’s own Lia Fallon of the Riverhead Project will be a judge and a contestant in a face-to-face cook off.
The contest is open to the public, and a $3 admission/donation will go to John Theissen Children’s Foundation. There will also be a Chinese auction for the foundation with great prizes. Children under 10 are free. Barbecue vendors will be onsite for attendees to try real competition barbecue.
