The Haleyville Rotary Club is sponsoring its annual 9-1-1 Cookoff this year during the 9-1-1 Festival, set for the second weekend in September. That is just around the corner, September 7-8. A new location has also been selected. The cookoff will be held in the parking lot behind the Haleyville Public Library.
This year, the cookoff will be done a little differently. It will be open class; there are no pro and back yard divisions.
There are four categories of meat to be cooked: ribs, chicken, brisket and pork. Entry fee is $100. Teams will have meat inspections, KCBS rules apply, with the exception that teams may cook with whatever they want to, including charcoal and gas.
The cookoff will be ABA sanctioned.
A grand prize of $1,000 will be awarded with $500 for Reserve Grand Champion. A top three will be named in each of the four meat categories, winning $100, $75, and $50 respectively, all with plaques.
The People’s Choice will also be available for cook teams to participate. Watch for more information on that event soon.For more information on the event, contact Bruce Eddy, (205) 486-9561 or email@example.com; or Ronnie Miller, (205) 269-4291, ronniem85centurytel.net.
