The Jenks Public Schools Foundation is proud to announce the creation of the new People’s Choice BBQ Competition in Jenks, OK. The Burn Co. Craft of Q People’s Choice BBQ Competition will take place September 20-21 at the Riverwalk in Jenks.
A call for amateur BBQ enthusiasts to create teams and participate in the first Craft of Q competition is currently underway. Competing teams will receive direction from Burn Co. owner, Adam Myers, when the event kicks-off on September 20th. Teams will include a pit master and up to four team members. Registration is available at the event website – www.CraftofQ.com and the cost is $200 per team.
US Foods is generously donating the meat for the competition which will include brisket, pork, and ribs. Competition food will be provided with each entry. Details and contest rules are available at www.CraftofQ.com
Teams will distribute 1 oz. servings to tasters when the People’s Choice Contest begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 21 on the Riverwalk. Taster plates will be sold at the event for $15 a plate while supplies last and will include one ticket for tasters to vote for their favorite BBQ team.

Awards will be given for 1st through 10th place, in addition to auxiliary awards for “most spirited”, “cleanest”, and “most creative”. This event is perfect for anyone who enjoys BBQ – either cooking it or eating it!
Family friendly festivities during the weekend event include live music and inflatables. Proceeds from The Craft of Q benefit the Jenks Rotary Club and the Jenks Public Schools Foundation.
