Hamilton Band Boosters will host their fifth annual Lone Star Barbecue Society-sanctioned barbecue cook-off Aug. 1 and 2 in Hamilton at the Jayson Harris Pavilion. This event is the band’s largest fundraiser of the year.
Teams from all around Texas are expected to attend. Membership in the society is not necessary, everyone is welcome to compete.
Categories for the cook-off will be ½ chicken, pork spare ribs, brisket and jack pot beans and Dutch oven desserts.
The entry fee for meat categories will be $50 and a cooked brisket. There is an additional $10 fee for jackpot beans and Dutch oven desserts.
Due to limits on electricity and water, those conveniences are available on a first-come basis or may be reserved with a $10 pre-payment.
First, second and third place winners will receive cash and trophies. Fourth through tenth place winners will receive ribbons.
The meat will be used for the fundraising barbecue meal to be held Saturday, Aug. 2.
