Have you perfected your outdoor cooking skills? Now its time to put them to the test at Absarokee Montana’s annual Montana BBQ Cook-Off being held on main street (Woodard Ave).
This fun family event is growing from a BBQ competition and microbrew tasting to include a day of free musical entertainment. Bands will be playing music from start to finish. This year’s line up will feature the Cold Hard Cash show, the Midlife Chryslers and one more band as well. Music will begin at 11:30am, BBQ tasting will begin at noon.
Listen to music while sampling BBQ from KCBS sanctioned BBQ competition and other treats from far and wide. Last year’s competition included over 24 entries and a purse of over $8000. The competition is open to businesses (a great way to promote), chefs, or humble backyard experts. It’s not too late to join in the competion.
The event has grown every year, with last year’s event being the largest, richest and most established BBQ event in Montana. Absarokee closes down its main street for the event, providing a great place to cruise the downtown and visit. The BBQ and Absarokee compliment each other, creating a nice excuse to get out, enjoy some great food, microbrews, and all of the valley’s outdoor activities.
