Seeking Teams for Glatt Kosher BBQ Competition

  • 4

The 20th annual ASBEE-Kroger Kosher BBQ Cooking Contest and Festival, hosted by Anshei Sphard-Beth El Emeth Congregation (ASBEE) in Memphis, Tennessee, is set for September 7th, and team registration has already begun. The festival will take place from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on the grounds of the synagogue, and features teams from Memphis and around the country vying for top honors in the world’s largest kosher BBQ contest.

Prizes are awarded for the best beef ribs, beef brisket, beans, team name and team booth. Last year, the festival hosted 40 teams from Nashville to New York City, and national interest is continuing to grow.

In addition to the cooking competition judged by a celebrity panel, the festival also includes children’s rides and games, food for sale by the ASBEE Sisterhood gourmet cookers, the ASBEE-Grizzlies 3-on-3-basketball tournament and the 6th annual pickle-eating contest.
