Art + Soul Oakland is excited to announce the inaugural Oaktown Throwdown BBQ competition to the festival.
Professional and backyard smokers from all over the region will compete for cash prizes and the honor of being awarded “Grand Champion.” Many of these professionals are multi-award winning chefs from other regional barbeque competitions.
The weekend will include “You-Be-the-Judge” People’s Choice Awards, bbq cooking demonstrations, bourbon and wine tastings, whole hog roast, and sales of barbeque-related merchandise. And the best part…enjoying hot-off-the-smoker samples from seasoned professionals.
The BBQ competition takes place on Saturday, August 2, as part of Art + Soul Oakland.
