Snowshoe Grilling Challege

I'm very excited for this weekend. After a long winter we will get to see all our Que friends at the Snowshoe Grilling Challenge in Abington, Ma. This event is being held at the VFW located at 30 Central St. This is the 17th year for this challenge which is organized by team Lunchmeat. This is a NEBS sanctioned event and benefits the Abington Food Pantry.

The sun is supposed to shine so come on down and chat with teams about BBQ and Grilling. You can also watch the teams prep and cook. I do have to warn you that it gets very hectic and serious come turn in time which starts at noon. The teams will often focus on plating their food and may not be very social at this time.

Be sure to stop by the NEBS booth for a hot chocolate and a hot dog. They will have some merchandise for sale. They will have lots of information on New England BBQ and other events in the area. Don’t hesitate to ask them any of your questions.

The event will wind down with award ceremony at 4:00.
