Buckaroo BBQ & Home Brew Challenge
Follow your nose out to the Pendleton Convention Center parking lot to sample some of the best BBQ in Eastern Oregon.
Buckaroo BBQ Challenge: Twenty-five teams will compete for trophies, prize money and most importantly, bragging rights. There’s sure to be some friendly trash talk amongst friends and fellow pit-masters.
For $5 you can become a People's Choice Judge. As a People's Choice judge, you will get a People's Choice button. Meet the BBQ Teams and sample the Tri-Tip proudly prepared by the teams. After you have sampled all of the BBQ, you will place your vote for the 1st place team. People’s Choice buttons go on sale at 11a.m. There are only 500 judge buttons available. They go fast so come early. People's Choice judging runs from 1:00 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. Awards to follow at approximately 4:45 p.m.
Buckaroo BBQ Youth Challenge is back! We are excited for this event. Only 10 spaces available for 2 age groups. Age Categories: 10-13 yr old and 14-17 yr old. We are going to have a special area for the Youth Pit Master to show off their skills.
Buckaroo Home Brew Challenge: This is a chance for Home Brewers to show off their beer-making skills and share their creations. The tasting won’t be open to the public, but there may be some Home Brew beer sampling in the beer garden. There’s still room to enter your brew for a panel of beer connoisseurs to judge.
