Kids’ Q

Our Lady of Victory’s Holy Smokes Competition is excited to add a new competition to our 2017 event… the Kids’ Q competition!  The Kids’ Q is a perfect opportunity for kids that want to learn more about the competition side of BBQ, as well as meet new people and test their skills over the red-hot coals.  Whether a child is an aspiring chef or just likes to mill around in the kitchen at home… all are welcome!

The Kids’ Q competition will occur Friday, August 4th at 7:00PM.  There are two age groups (8-11 yrs old and 12-16 yrs old) with 10 teams in each age group.  A team may consist of up to two kids, in which both kids must be in the same age group.  Teams will cook hamburgers for a panel of judges on a portable char-coal grill that they will be able to keep after the competition (only one grill per team).  Judges will score the meat on Appearance, Taste and Tenderness and all scores will be tallied to determine the winner of each age group.  The Grand Champions and Reserve Grand Champions (First and Second place teams) in each category will receive a trophy and prize money.  In addition, the Grand Champions, Reserve Grand Champions and Third Place teams will be asked to return the following day to be recognized during the awards presentation for the main BBQ competition.
