June BBQ Cook Off and Fund Raiser

 


The June BBQ Cook-Off and Fund Raiser was held on the second Saturday of June.  This event is where we raise enough money to fund our operations budget for the coming year.  On very good years we use the excess funds to expand our fire fighting/rescue capabilities.  The June Cook-off is great fun for the cookers and the public who comes out to support us.  This year we had 14 all meats cook teams, 15 Jackpot bean teams, and 6 chili teams. We started the day off at 8:00 am with a free pancake breakfast for the cook teams.  This was followed by a meeting for the cookers with the meat judge.  Around noon, we served a great BBQ brisket lunch that included chicken, sausage, and goat.  The meal was rounded out with beans, potato salad, cookies, and iced tea.  Following the meal, we auctioned off some great items including a black buck hunt, heavy machinery work, tools, hand made quilts, plus many, many more items.  During the grand auction we announced the winners of our raffle.  The winners of our cook-off were announced after the grand auction.  We thank everyone who came out and had fun and supported their fire department.
