Default Sept 21, 2014 Hicksville, NY Fire Dept

Event: 4th Annual BBQ Cook-off
Location: Cantiague Park, Hicksville, NY. West of the Hicksville Train Station.
Date: Sept 21, 2014
Organizers: Hicksville Fire Dept.
Contact: Brian Quinn, bquinn@hicksvillehose4cookoff.com
Entry Fee: Only $100.00!
Format: A) People's Choice ribs B) Chicken, Ribs, Beef judged entries utilizing BBQ Brethren contest rules
Application: http://hicksvillehose4cookoff.com


You can arrive the night before anytime after 6pm and before 10pm.


The categories are chicken, pork ribs and beef. You can use the ribs from the People's Choice for your rib category if you'd like.


The application should now be updated for 2014, so you are good to go.


The event is a benefit for the American Heart Association in response to the struggles of a son of one the firemen involved.


There will be live music and a pretty kick butt car show.


The ribs are provided to the teams by the Fire Department.


The event reps will be Linda and Jerry Mullane. The judges will be standard, trained BBQ judges (not celebrities).


Brian (one of the organizers) is having a problem with his email that should be resolved within 48 hours. If you have a question that needs answering prior to that, please post it here.


They are hard at work on the event and look forward to seeing everyone there. I've competed there once and attended 3 times. It's a fun contest run by good people for a great cause.

If it's by BBQ Brethren Rules, than I might be out of it. I don't have a 3 sink set-up and I really can't afford to drop $1K right now for my 1st comp. to get one.

I am in.

Pretty new to the site and only have two comp's under my belt. Our team is Struggletown BBQ. I'm from Long Island my brother-In-Law is from upstate.

We competed in the Lake Placid I Love BBQ Festival the past two years. Have done well in NEBS but crushed in KCBS. Looking forward to joining this event.

I notice the application you linked to is still the 2013 form. Should we use this or will there be an updated one?

I just spoke with Brian (one of the organizers) this afternoon and I believe that using last years app is fine as long as you are aware that there might be changes that they will inform you of ahead of time.

To be honest, I don't think that there will be any significant changes.

They hope to have that updated asap.

Eric,

Is this contest

A) People's Choice ribs

or

B) Standard 4 category BBQ utilizing BBQ Brethren contest rules

or both? It's very difficult to do people choice ribs and all 4 meats in a single day contest.

I will get details for you, but it is definitely a People's Choice rib contest AND a judged BBQ contest. I think that the categories may be simpler than a standard contest and it may be something akin to chicken, ribs, beef and pork, meaning any chicken you want to turn in, any beef, ribs that you are already cooking and any pork.

I'll try to have full info asap.

Eric
