Traeger Most Excellent Griller Contest

The 2017 Independence BrewBQ is Saturday, August 26th at Riverwalk Parks. If you enjoy barbequing and would like to compete for the Traeger Most Excellent Griller title, contact a “Q Crew” member.

traeger-grillThe contest will be a “Chopped” format to test the skills of 4 local barbeque cooks. A “mystery basket” will be given to each chef in an appetizer, main course and dessert round. One chef will be “chopped” after each round, leaving 2 finalists to compete in the dessert round for the title. This honor includes bragging rights for another year, a cash prize of $150 and other goodies!


Four local celebrities will judge the entries based on:

  • Flavor
  • Use of all ingredients
  • Presentation

We would like to extend a special thanks to B&B Farm Store for providing the Traeger Grills for this event.
