What It Is

This is a “Cooking Competition” intertwined with live music, taste testing, lunch, dessert, late afternoon funnel cakes, and much more.

In the spring and the fall Papa Rock hosts a “Cooking Competition” in Middle Grove Missouri. The competition has 4 parts. Meat Smoking Class, Chefs Choice Class, Open Class, and Dessert Class.

“Meat Smoking Class” consisting of 3 classes of meat, turnin times for each class, and a panel of judges that score all meats turned in.

“Chefs Choice Class” is a protein revealed on the day of the cook. Teams can choose to compete or not. There is no cost to enter this class. This class is judged by other cooking competitors.

“Open Class” competition that anyone can enter anything bbq related. IE: Baked beans, sausages, your favorite coleslaw, smoked salmon, etc. This class is judged by General Admission and eaten at the same time as the lunch we serve.

“Dessert Class” competition that anyone can enter with anything pertaining to sweets. This class is judged by General Admission. This competition is an event held after lunch.

Our desire in creating this competition was for fun, to love on our community, to be easy on the pocket book, and family friendly.
