Hello to all!
    We have a date for the 7th Annual Smokey Hayes “Porkin’ on the River” BBQ Competition! Competition will be held on March 2nd and 3rd 2018. Please mark your calendars!
Still have a couple things to iron out but we should have Team, Judges and Vendor Registration up and running by mid October.
www.smokeyhayesbbq.com
A message to teams, “Would you all like to add a “One Bite Pork Loin Challenge” with the “One Bite Beef Challenge” on Friday?”
Both challenges would be a $25.00 entry fee with winner take all in each challenge.
You, the Teams, need to vote! Please email me from website and let me know!

Unfortunately the 2018 Smokey Hayes "Porkin' on the River" BBQ Competition has been canceled.
The Pioneer has chosen not to sponsor us in 2018. We thank the Pioneer and its staff for the last 3 years they have sponsored this event.
We are currently making calls and seeking a new venue and sponsor for March 2018.
 We will keep you posted.

We have been getting a lot of questions about People's Choice and the competition so I will try to elaborate on some here.
Teams supply all meat cooked.
The Sample Tickets are sold to public for $2.00 each and this is split 50/50 $1.00 to teams and $1.00 to event.
Please remember that People's Choice participation is what keeps this event going so we urge you to participate and there is no extra charge for participation.
You do not need a Food Handlers card to participate but you will need  "Wash, Rinse & Sanitize" buckets or tubs and a "Hand Wash" station with hot water. I heat the water on my smokers fire box.
The "One Bite Challenges" prize money is based on participation. Money received from teams is payed back 100%, 1st place 50%, 2nd place 30% and 3rd place 20% in both categories.
The deadline for registration is February 10th, because we have those Pesky Nevada permits to get.
So REGISTER TODAY!
