The entry fee is $175 and includes THREE CATEGORIES: Brisket, Chicken & Ribs with an 80% Payout to the top three winners! An optional add-on includes Burnt Ends, Beans & Bloody Mary for an additional $15 (only one winner per category).

This is a GREAT way to kick-off Labor Day Weekend! Entries include use of resort amenities…our pool, fishing in a stocked pond, games and more!

Kids Cook-off

Let the kids test their skills, too! Friday, August 30th, 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.
