Rotary Barbecue Cook Off returns to Goats, Music and More

Friday, October 2, 2009

The 3rd Annual Lewisburg Rotary Club State Championship Barbecue Cook Off, sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, returns to the Goats, Music and More Festival on Saturday, Oct. 10.

Professional and backyard/shade tree cookers from across the Southeast will be putting their best sauces and spices on the grill competing for up to $6,000 in cash prizes in five categories: chicken, pork ribs, pork, brisket (beef) and "Goat with Anything But," serving as the State Championship Goat Cook Off.

This year's event is sponsored by First Farmers and Merchants Bank, First National Bank, Roberts & Lyons GM, A-Plus Collision Center, Wal-Mart, Coble Furniture and Advanced Eye Care Clinic. It is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet, along with the Goats, Music and More Festival itself.

The Goats, Music and More Festival is in its 7th year and the Rotary Barbecue Cook Off will host its third event. Both events continue to grow each year and help to put Lewisburg on the map each second weekend of October. The Goats, Music and More Festival was recently selected as a Top 20 Event in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society.

Spaces are still available to put your cooking team in the cook off for this year. If you would like a registration form, contact Angie Binkley at (931) 359-8770 or e-mail her at
