BBQ Battle today in Grass Valley

People from around western Nevada County are firing up their grills for the United Way of Nevada County’s fourth annual BBQ Battle today at 5 p.m. in downtown Grass Valley at the Gold Miner’s Inn-Holiday Inn Express.

The team competition features about 10 squads, including defending champions Dragon’s Breath, winner of the critics’ choice award; and Caroline’s Coffee Crew, winners of the people’s choice award.

Each team will grill one type of meat and make enough samples for 150 to taste. A $5 ticket includes three tastes and the right to caste a ballot toward the people’s choice award.

The event offers two raffles, with the feature prize a weeklong trip to Hawaii. A mister tent and music by Sols will round off this event.

Proceeds support United Way of Nevada County and its 20 partner agencies.
