Whether you’re the pit boss of an award-winning competition team or just an aficionado of fine barbeque, you’ll want to mark your calendar and be sure to attend the City of Auburn Hills Barbeque Cook-off, June 26 - 27, 2009.

The Auburn Hills Barbeque Cook-off is sanctioned by none other than the Kansas City Barbeque Society and includes $5,000 in total cash prizes.
Judging activities are on June 27 when winners of four barbeque categories will be announced:

Chicken (noon)

Pork ribs (12:30 p.m.)

Pork shoulder (1 p.m.)

Brisket (1:30 p.m.)

The event culminates when judges add up the individual scores to determine the Grand Champion, who receives $1,500, a trophy and, most importantly, major bragging rights. So, if you have a seasoned barbeque team, are new to competition but want to see how your ”Q” compares to the area’s best, or if you just want to experience the fun of a sanctioned barbeque competition, this event in Auburn Hills is for you.

The barbecue cook-off is part of the City of Auburn Hills annual Summerfest, June 25 – 27, in the Village Center and Riverside Park. SummerFest includes several events, like the Taste of Auburn Hills, an ice cream social and a car show, called “By the river." All three days are filled with fun for the whole family!
