Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - OUT & ABOUT - STAFF RE­PORT

Bar­be­cue, beer and mu­sic are a La­bor Day week­end tra­di­tion — and Chat­tanooga Mar­ket will have it all when the ninth an­nual Beast Feast BBQ Con­test is held Sun­day, Sept. 2.

Seven grill mas­ters will put their chicken, pork or beef on the line at this throw­down in First Ten­nes­see Pav­il­ion, 1826 Carter St., dur­ing mar­ket hours of 11 a. m. to 4 p. m.

Spicy or mild, rubbed or slathered, there will be a cook­ing style for ev­ery­one’s taste. Each pit mas­ter will of­fer bar­be­cue bites for $1 or mar­ket­go­ers can pur­chase a full plate of their fa­vorite for an ad­di­tional charge. Peo­ple’s Choice and Judge’s Fa­vorite awards will pre­sented.

The bar­be­cue cook-off is or­ga­nized by Steve Ray of Steve Ray’s Mid­nite Oil in Oolte­wah. It is a sanc- tioned event for the World Food Cham­pi­onships, which means the win­ner will re­ceive a golden ticket to com­pete in the 2018 World Food Cham­pi­onships.

In ad­di­tion to bar­be­cue, the pav­il­ion will be filled with more than 150 ven­dors sell­ing fresh pro­duce, meat, cheeses, flow­ers and orig­i­nal arts and crafts.
