Charlotte’s Smokin’ Flavor Fest – BBQ Cook-Off to benefit Make A Wish Foundation

Sixteen local barbeque grilling teams will participate in the 2nd Annual BBQ Cook-Off sponsored by Charlotte Outdoor Creations to benefit the local chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Grilling teams will begin cooking on site at 3645 Pleasant Plains Rd, Matthews Friday night and continue through late afternoon Saturday when judging will be completed. There will be judging in 5 BBQ categories; chicken, ribs, brisket, pork and open grill with first through third place winners being recognized. The open grill will be judged by the public at noon and the winner of that category will receive a Big Green Egg Smoker donated by Charlotte Outdoor Creations. Additionally, there will be BBQ sampling, moon bounce for children and more fun all day.

Come and enjoy the day, BBQ samplings, and support The Make-A-Wish Foundation. The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
