Hospice of South Texas Will Benefit from Cook-off

Hospice of South Texas

The air will be filled with the smell of sizzling chicken, ribs and brisket March 23 as the the Coleto Creek BBQ Association hosts its third annual Spring BBQ Cook-off.

An International Barbeque Cookers Association sanctioned event, $3,000 in prizes will be paid out, including $500 to the grand champion and $325 to the reserve champion, says the Victoria Advocate. Five places in all three meat categories will also receive cash prizes. The entry fee is $150 per team.

If barbecuing isn’t your forte, competitions will also be held for homestyle chili and for best beans. The entry fee is $20 for each of these categories with a 50 percent payback.

Saturday also includes a silent auction from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and a live auction at 3:30 p.m. Activities start Friday with Jackpot Margarita and Chef’s Choice competitions. The entry fee is $10 for each with an 80 percent payback.

The event is a fundraiser for Hospice of South Texas. In years past, the event’s proceeds have helped defray medical expenses for a man in need and to assist a family who suffered a house fire. The event will be on the grounds of the Colet Inn Bar and Grill, 3023e Camp Colet Road in Victoria. RV parking is available. Judges are welcome.

For more information, call 361-275-6869 or 361-564-7296.
