ROCKLANDS Barbeque and Grilling Company, home of the hot-sauce Wall of Fire, will host its Fourth Annual Hot Sauce Contest on Thursday, September 14. Bring a batch of your homemade sauce to be judged!
Even if you have not entered the competition, everyone and anyone is welcome to attend the evening pig roast, judging and tasting. Tickets will be $25 at the door (cash or credit card), for all-you-care-to-eat barbeque carved off a whole roasted pig, sides, and craft beer. All proceeds benefit DC Firefighters Burn Foundation.
How to compete:
All entries (hot sauces) must be submitted to Will at ROCKLANDS Arlington by 12 noon on Thursday, September 14, 2017. Please submit at least a 20-ounce portion of hot sauce, clearly labeled with your name and contact information; we do NOT need your recipe. Contestants must be present to win. Contest will be limited to the first 25 entries. Honorable and impartial judges will taste all sauces. No bribes accepted. As judges are tasting, everyone else can also taste competing sauces and vote for People’s Choice. There will be a trophy and bragging rights for 1st and 2nd place, and for People’s Choice. (For more information please call ROCKLANDS Arlington at 703-528-9663 and ask for Will, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.)
