Guys Who Grill is a grilling competition with a sizzling showdown where barbecue enthusiasts showcase their skills in cooking up mouthwatering dishes. Each Grill team will provide an appetizer size portion of grilled or smoked item using various techniques and secret recipes. We will have a variety of items including smoked appetizers, meats, sandwiches, veggies and even dessert! Each ticket holder will get a punch card and will get to try each Grill Team entry and then get to vote for their People’s Choice Award.

Event starts at 11:00am and goes to 2:30pm with Judges Choice Award at 1:00pm. Enjoy the event at your own pace between those hours and tours will be given of the St. Katharine Drexel Shelter throughout the day.
