BBQ at Spork Pit

Spork Pit Opens & Upcoming Competitions

August 17, 2018 spoon 0 Comments

Spork Pit is now open!
One of the most anticipated BBQ restaurant openings is happening this weekend! Technically they were open to the public on Thursday but the big opening bash is this Sunday and the barbecue gods are planning perfect weather – but it’s Pittsburgh so be ready for anything just in case. Take a moment and read Gretchen McKay’s story from the Post Gazette about what you can expect. I plan on hitting it before our next event which is…

Grill Your Ace Off is next weekend!
Grill Your Ace OffAre you a seasoned vet or backyard hero? The 4th annual Grill Your Ace Off is looking for pro and backyard barbecue teams to compete next weekend! 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. Proceeds go to the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Last year over $5500 was raised!

Your steak could win $500 at the 2018 Grill Your Steak Off competition!
2018 Grill Your Steak OffDo 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.

A new look coming to Yinz Love BBQ!
I’ve been working with a very talented local artist to design a new logo and branding materials for Yinz Love BBQ. This will open the doors to shirts, stickers, banners, magnets and anything I can slap the logo on. If you’re familiar with my work on “Should I Drink That?” you know it will go everywhere! BTW, the SIDT podcast is coming back too. It’s been a busy summer around here n’at.
