This family friendly event is located just off exit 70 on the Long Island Expressway.
BBQ teams from throughout the northeast will be arriving on Friday, August 3th as they prepare for a weekend of competition and camaraderie. A grilling contest will be held on Saturday, August 4th and the winners of this event will be competing later that day in a special 'winner takes all shootout' against each other and a celebrity chef that will be joining us for this event.
The NY State BBQ Championships will be held on August 5th as the teams compete for the right to represent NY State in prestigious national and invitational events. The categories for this event will be chicken, ribs, pork and brisket. The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday afternoon, as we crown a new NY State Champion.
