UNCF BBQ Cook-Off and Kids Happy Hour
August 29, 2015
Pratt Park, Seattle WA
The sixth annual UNCF BBQ Cook-Off led by Chef Wayne Johnson of Shuga Jazz Bistro features amateur grill masters who will compete in a BBQ Cook-Off to earn the title of “2015 UNCF Cook-Off Grill Master” and a brand new BBQ grill. Up to 60 participants will compete in four BBQ cook-off heats that will consist of preparing hamburgers. The top two winners from each heat will compete in one final round heat preparing the “secret ingredient”. Each heat will have a panel of judges made up of local prominent community leaders, celebrity chefs, and celebrity athletes/coaches.
CONGRATULATIONS to our 2014 UNCF BBQ Cook-off for Education Grill Master, Marlene Alexander!
The participant entry fee is $25 and each participant receives a culinary gift bag that will include, but is not limited to, spice rubs, tongs, grilling mitt, BBQ sauce, BBQ cookbook, etc. All proceeds from this event benefit the UNCF Pacific Northwest Scholarship Fund.
Each participant will be provided with basic seasonings, cooking utensils, ingredients for the competition, and a grill. All you need to bring is yourself and an assistant if you choose!
