Ponca City, OK (PRWEB) March 25, 2005
The worldÂs foremost outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear has entered the barbecue cook-off arena with its World's Foremost Bar-B-Que Challenge. CabelaÂs is encouraging backyard barbecue enthusiasts to don their aprons and cook head-to-head against other barbecue masters.
Stuart Powell, Cookshack CEO, says, "We think Cabela's and barbecue are a great combination. For years outdoor enthusiasts have purchased Cookshack smokers from Cabela's to smoke both barbecue and game. Cabela's has created a great opportunity for backyard barbecuers to compete, and for Challenge visitors to learn more about the world of barbecue."
The cook-offs take place from March through September at Cabela's stores in 10 cities, culminating in the CabelaÂs National Championship, September 9 Â 10, 2005 in Kansas City, KS. Cook-offs include a bonus wild game category with meat provided by CabelaÂs, food prepared by CabelaÂs own team, and awards ceremonies with over $9,000 in cash and prizes. Cooking spaces are a generous 25 x 30Â (electricity is limited). Entry fee is $150.
Challenge dates and locations are as follows: March 5-6, Kansas City, KS; May 20-21, Sidney, NE; June 17-18, Kearney, NE; June 17-18, Dundee, MI; June 24-25, Owatonna, MN; June 29-30, East Grand Forks, MN; August 5-6, Prairie du Chien, WI; August 5-6, Mitchell, SD August 12-13, Wheeling, WV; August 26-27, Hamburg, PA.
