Weekend Music Festival

There is SO much more than a smoke-off planned that weekend! The BBQ competition is part of a larger weekend music festival called Fall Fest, here at Silver Spur Resort. Weekend festivities include all-day music, tons of planned activities, a beer garden, food & more! BBQ participants will be able to enjoy this awesome family-friendly weekend, packed with activities onsite.

Kids Cook-off

Let the kids test their skills, too! Friday, November 22nd, we’ll have a Kids Porkchop Cook-Off for $15 with a 100% payout!


Porkchop turn-in will be 8:00 pm on Friday night. Porkchops can be smoked, grilled, etc but MUST be cooked on wood. Judging will be based on taste, smell, and look. We will donate pork chops to kids if needed. Payout places will depend on the number of entries we get.

Register Today!

Adults should register using the BBQ Cook-Off option below. Once you hit continue, you will see the option to add the bloody mary, burnt ends, and beans to your registration if you like. You may also add the kid’s cook-off option if your child will be participating, so all registrations are on one invoice. If you are JUST participating in the beans, burnt-ends, and bloody mary add-on for $15, there is an option to sign up for that by itself.

If you are ONLY registering your child for the competition, please choose the Kids Cook-Off Option.
