RGV Cookoff is a TX State BBQ Championship Competition
It’s Official !! RGV Cookoff, organizational entity, that owns The Fajita Cookoff and The BBQ Cookoff, has been declared a Texas State BBQ Championship Competition.
Smokin’ since 1976, this year marks a new milestone for the RGV Cookoff at PalmFest in McAllen. First of all, we have been proclaimed a “State Championship Cookoff by the
Texas State Senate”.
This means the Grand Champion of this cookoff will automatically be invited to compete in the American Royal Invitational in Kansas City, Mo. Also, the Grand Champion will be put in a lottery drawing for the Jack Daniels Invitational in Lynchburg, TN.
(We’re sure to get at least 15 teams.)
Here is what Lynn Shivers, of the International BBQ Cooks Association has to say about this and what it means for the Teams that compete in our event.
" Being a State Champion will create another draw for your event – The first year of being declared a State Championship you only have to have 15 teams and then there after 25 – and the Grand Champion will be invited to the American Royal Invitational, Kansas City, Mo. and their name will also be put into the lottery draw for the Jack Daniels Invitational, Lynchburg, TN "
" The Jack Daniels event is the hardest event to get into because you have to qualify and then be drawn from the draw of all of the Texas qualifier events Grand Champion. "
Congratulations on getting your Proclamation – I will post it to our website.
Thank you for supporting IBCA & BBQ.
