Food and Wine Best BBQ

BBQ Events July 27 – 29 and Steak Cookoff

July 27, 2018 spoon 0 Comments

Western PA BBQ mentioned in Food & Wine Best of BBQ list!
Food & Wine has complied a list of the best BBQ places in each state and while Philly is king (this is the ONLY time you’ll catch me saying that. Go Pens!) 2 places I really enjoy were menitoned also. Pittsburgh was represented by soon-to-open SporkPit who has made a name on the pop-up BBQ circuit along with our neighbors in Erie getting well deserved press for Federal Hill Smokehouse. Congrats to both places and I look forward to yinz putting me in a delicious BBQ coma again soon!

I mentioned previously I was at Pork & Beans and Two Brother’s BBQ over the last few weeks well now you can add Cioppino’s to the list (and Bobby D’s next week). Are any of those reviews online yet? Of course not because I’m slacking but for good reason! I’m ready to announce…

Your steak could win $500 at the 2018 Grill Your Steak Off competition!
Do you cook the best steak in your neighborhood? Are you the grill master of your cul-de-sac? Bring your backyard skills to “Grill Your Steak Off” at Williams Ace Hardware on September 29th

The SCA sanctioned event features a $1000 total payout and AN ENTRY TO THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OF STEAK in Fort Worth, TX!  Registration is now open and complete details can be found here.

Are you a seasoned vet or backyard hero? The 4th annual Grill Your Ace Off is looking for pro and backyard barbecue teams to compete the last weekend of August! This was one of the first events Teaspoon and I attended last summer and we had a blast (check out the vid here). If you would like more information email spoon@yinzlovebbq.com and I’ll connect you with the organizers.


Keep up with current BBQ festivals/competitions and plan ahead with the Western PA BBQ Events Page! This year I have added a Google Calendar for you to subscribe to.
