Register now for the 7th annual barbecue battle

It’s time to show off your backyard barbecue skills in the 7th Annual United Way of Nevada County BBQ Battle from 5 to 7 p.m. Aug. 22 in the Gold Miners Inn/Holiday Inn Express parking lot.

Backyard competitors are encouraged to show off their barbecue skills using any kind of cooker or grill. Each competitor will be provided a 10-foot by 10-foot area.

There will be prizes for the winners, raffles and music. Barbecue team registration is currently taking place.

There will be two judging categories — one decided by the those attending the barbecue and the other will be decided by a small group of “critic’s choice” judges.

Think you have what it takes to compete against last year’s winners? Come share your talents; download an entry form from and register your team today. If you can’t compete, maybe you can help by sponsoring a team or the event.

All proceeds from this event will go into United Way of Nevada County’s Community Impact Fund. The impact fund is currently being allocated toward three specific areas: education, income and health. The United Way of Nevada County’s mission is to improve lives by directing community resources to community needs.
