Brasfield and Gorrie hosted their 9th annual BBQ Cook-off benefiting various charities in the Birmingham area. The day started off early by firing up the grill around 6:30 am to begin cooking Boston butts and racks of ribs that were pre-ordered by people in the community. After these were taken off the grill, preparations began for the People’s Choice Competition where the Mexican theme was a big hit. Attendees purchased tickets to sample all of the participant’s food and were able to vote for their favorite. At the end of the day, Blackjack received 3rd Place in the People’s Choice competition and the Cook-off raised over $100,000 for the following charities in Birmingham: American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, American Red Cross, Christian Service Mission, Down Syndrome Alabama, Magic Moments, Preschool Partners, Restoration Academy, The Amelia Center, and The Bell Center.
Blackjack always has such a great time participating in this event for such a good cause. We look forward to next year!
