BBQ Cook offs in East Texas - Page 2

post #21 of 26

Count me in on any help in the East Texas area.


I posted some background info, but did it in the "Texas" thread:


I just came across this site looking for some local cook-offs.



We moved from the DFW meteromess four years ago to the Athens area. I still have an office up there, but try to avoid it like ebola.


For a while we were at a cook-off at least every other weekend, if not every weekend.  We had a baby boy join us three years ago, and needles to say that put the brakes on the cook-off scene for a little while.


I am looking for local cook-offs, willing to help running cook-offs, helping in getting new ones off the ground, shooting the breeze on BBQ, hunting, fishing, or anything else for that matter.



I look forward to meeting like minded cookers around the area.

If you are still looking for a venu you should look at Kiepersol.  They have a 5k run each year and plenty of space to host an event.

Hi every one. This is my first real post so I hope I don't screw it up haha.


I live in Tyler tx and I have been wondering myself "what competitions are there around here?"



I was about to host a non-profit bbq cook-off in late october of 2016 that benefited local law enforcement through Lone Star Church. It was a real blast, except there was just me and one other guy, but we made it fun and got to feed a bunch of people and collect some money for a good cause. 


Would anyone be interested in this thread be interested in participating this year? I had a heck of a time trying to find cooks last year, now that I found out about this place, I am hopeful I could persuade one or a few of you to join in. IF you win, you get a pig trophy haha.


Please let me know,
