The competition will include “You-Be-the-Judge” People’s Choice Awards, whole hog roast, and sales of barbeque-related merchandise. And the best part… enjoying hot-off-the-smoker samples from seasoned professionals. Oakland's own Celebrity Chef, Tanya Holland of Brown Sugar Kitchen and B-Side, will be on hand to share some barbecue secrets and give a sneak preview of her new cookbook, “Brown Sugar Kitchen" at 2:45p on Saturday.
The BBQ competition takes place on Saturday August 2nd as part of Art + Soul Oakland.
