Nassau Bahamas has become a great place for a regional BBQ competition. This sunny vacationer’s paradise is now in its 6th year and pays out over $3000.00 in prize money & medals for the fierce group of very skilled grillers & smoking competitors in the Bahamas. An excellent travel destination for judges and teams from the US and the Caribbean Islands.

  It started as a 1- Day KCBS Sanctioned BBQ Competition in 2012, but in 2017 it will become a 2-day grilling, and slow smoking authentic BBQ competition. And we have the very best in venues this year too, Bahamas National Trust “The Retreat” on village Road.     Comfortable, close parking, some great kids play areas and literally tons of good grilled and slow smoked brisket, ribs, pork shoulder, and pizza coming off the grills and out of those smokers.

  Saturday April 1st:  The 1st Annual Backyard Grilling Challenge.  This is open as a 1-Day contest for anyone 18 yr. and older.  You don’t have to be a chef either, anyone with a grill can get in on the fun and sport of grilling. It all about grilling with categories of best Hamburger., Chicken Wings, Steak, Pork Chops & Pizza, all done on the grill and something we can all do. Come test your shills with us. Propane or charcoal grills are allowed for this day’s competition. It’s fun, exciting, and a great grill challenge.
