Every August, pit masters converge on the Bolivar Peninsula from miles around to take part in the Port Bolivar Volunteer Fire Department’s Annual BBQ Cook Off. Teams battle it out for cash and prizes in the categories for Best Brisket, Best Ribs, Chicken, Beans and Best in Show. The competition is fierce but friendly as some teams return year after year to fight for bragging rights as they help raise money in support of the PBVFD.
Teams start cooking Friday night, with awards and BBQ dinner plates for sale on Saturday. The event includes a great LIVE Auction and Raffle on Saturday. Bid on a variety of handcrafted furniture, quality gifts, equipment and unique items you won’t find anywhere else. Bring the whole family out for a taste of real Texas BBQ and help support the fine men and women who tirelessly give of their time to provide Fire Protection Services to Port Bolivar and the Bolivar Peninsula.
