Eleuthera Family Fun Day and Grilling Competition

  • Rock Sound The Bahamas (map)

The newest Grilling and BBQ Competition destination is Eleuthera Bahamas, December 9th.

   This will be one of the coolest places we have had the privilege of holding a competition. We have strong local backing, and a good base group of cooking teams in Eleuthera, and the local home town team the Tarpon Bay Boys just recently won the annual” Bahamas Fire & Welding BBQ” in Nassau this May

  Our venue is right on the beach with outdoor Tike Bar. You couldn’t ask for a better setting for dinner and contest. Eleuthera will be 2 great days for food, fun and a focus on grilling, for competition and for fun with your family & friends.  It kicks off on Friday evening Dec. 8th at Four Points, in Rock Sound, Eleuthera, with the Fire & Ice Beach Grilled cocktail & Dinner Party.

  3 groups of Celebrity Guest Chefs from Nassau and Eleuthera will prepare a verity of grilled seafood and steak dinner menus, incorporating selected local spirits as flavoring ingredients, coupled with some outrageous cocktail menus designed specifically for the appetizers and main courses, and dessert bar. So, it’s cocktails party at 5:30 and a world class sunset as the backdrop. And dinner and entertainment 7- 

  This competition is primarily grilling, but some categories may be slow smoked if you like. It is an easy contest designed so anyone that grills can enter with confidence and has a great shot a winning in several categories.

  To make it possible for many teams to participate, and their friends, family and supporters can all come to Eleuthera too, here’s what we are doing to assist.

  We are working with Bahamas Ferries to bring down a container dedicated to our team’s equipment. Have will have it delivered to the site and unloaded.  Reloaded and shipped back to Nassau after the contest and at no charge to the teams.

  Pineapple air is also planning extra flights, giving special rates, making extra trips to get down and back the same day, with a late return flight so people can came for the day, or the whole weekend and not cut it short.

  We will have over 100 homes for rent, and packages for the weekend stays with house rentals for the teams or the whole family, hotel rental packages w/ slip for your vessel as well.

  The ferries will have accommodations for bringing your company or personal cars, small water craft, and arranged for a special docking just ¼ mile from the contest site, in Rock Sound, Four Points, in the south of the island.

  This is a 1-day contest Saturday Dec. 9th from 12:00pm to 9pm. It is a grilling competition with the following categories, steak, pizza, chicken, ribs, & dessert.  Our People’s choice category is the pineapple of Eleuthera. $2,000.00 in cash prizes, and it will be pushed to $3,000.00 cash if we have 20 or more teams compete. Limited sampling, and sampling meats are supplied.

  You may smoke anything you want, but all the categories can all be done with a grill, and without slow    smoking. No overnight cooking is necessary in this contest, starts mid-day Saturday, and goes into the early night. The contest site is on the ocean, a beautiful beach bar set & restaurant set-up you will certainly like, and enjoy. Kayaking, boat rides and ATV trails and more cool things to do so bring the family and come on down.
