Is your chef King of the Grill? Are you up for the challenge and willing to let the public decide? Wine Country Big Q is Sonoma County’s Premiere BBQ Event. Sonoma County is a mecca of great food and world-class wine, beer and cider and until now has had very little barbecue influence. We invite you to join us in this one day of showcasing great barbecue and the delicious beverages that complement barbecue. The Big Beef Challenge is a competition to find the best tri tip barbecue in Wine Country prepared by local winery, brewery and cider maker teams. The winner of the People’s Choice Award in the Big Beef Challenge will receive a trophy, $250 and bragging rights! Teams will also receive 50% payout back on each of the beef tasting tickets turned in during the Public Tasting. Tasting tickets are $2 each per 2 oz. sample.
Registration includes a 20 ft wide x 20 ft deep space for teams barbecuing. In lieu of an entry fee Big Beef Challenge Teams will provide at least 500 - 2 ounce tri tip beef samples. If providing beer, wine or cider to pair with your beef, you are asked to provide ample beverage for sampling.
Directions and additional information will be sent to you prior to the competition. Big Beef Challenge Teams will receive 4 passes for staff.
