Vernal IFA Smoke-off (Aug. 24)


Saturday, Aug. 24, 2019

Sweet, tender and smoky goodness brings an instant smile to any food lovers face. If you have the barbecue skills, it all tastes great. Whether it’s your preferred type of meat, summer vegetables, or even, desserts, it can all be easily done in the backyard with your smoker or pellet grill.

Bring your grill and skills to the Vernal IFA Country Store on Saturday, August 24 and participate in our annual IFA Smoke-off. Prove you have the meat cookin’ chops to be dubbed the neighborhood Pitmaster. Compete for bragging rights, the love of great food, or simply, the fun of it with friends and family.

The event requires that each participant cook their meat on-site. The cuts of meat will be provided at different times in the morning on the day of the competition. The event will be broken into two classes: Business and Backyard BBQ. The Business Class requires a team of 3 people from a supporting business to prepare 3 different cuts of meat. The Backyard BBQ Class requires individual participants to prepare 2 different cuts of meat on-site. In addition to the class competitions, each group or individual will automatically be in the running for a People’s Choice Award.

Trophies and other prizes will be awarded to the 1st and 2nd place winners of the Backyard BBQ Class. A traveling trophy will be given to the winner of the Business Class, along with a grill and other prizes. The judging will begin at 12:00 p.m.
