Our newest activity for 2017 is the “Almost Heaven Chili Challenge”, exclusively for cook teams from fire departments in West Virginia. The best news is … the public gets to “taste and vote for their favorite” between 2:00 and 4:00 PM on Saturday, June 17th.
Teams set up Saturday morning on the main front lawn area of the asylum and begin cooking their special recipe so visiting can enjoy the delicious aroma of both championship BBQ and tasty chili. Support your favorite fire dept. team by purchasing 5 tickets for 5 samples and 1 voting token, then present a ticket to the team(s) of your choice for a sample … then VOTE!
A special inaugural event Grand Champion award, and a cash prize, will be presented to the team with the most votes (tokens), so come support your favorite team (minimum $100 top prize) … the more tickets purchased, the more funds going into the overall prize pool, which also pays for the 2nd and 3rd place winners.
If you’re a member of one of the many fire departments in West Virginia, or know someone who is, feel free to share the information below. All teams must be directly affiliated with a WV fire dept. to enter.
Entry deadline: June 9, 2017
