Winter Smoke 2017
The time is here, the cold has settled in so time to crank up the heat and get out to IBBQA’s 5th Annual Winter Smoke event on Saturday February 11th, 2017. Proceeds of this event will go to support the ZCenter Sexual Abuse Center, an institution that has been standing with and serving victims of sexual assault for 34 years.
Dave Raymond, aka Sweet Baby Ray, talks about why he is proud to be a member of the Illinois BBQ Alliance and all the benefits he and the community receives.
The Illinois BBQ Alliance members and guests are gathering at Smoque BBQ to feast on Smoque ribs and brisket. Pitmaster Barry Sorkin is also cooking up smoked beef tenderloin and smoked pork confit tacos, for this special event! We are also going to rolling out our new website and sharing with you some of the plans and events for the future.
