The North Dallas Chamber of Commerce’s 2015 Big D BBQ Battle is really three events in one:

  • North Texas businesses field cooking teams that prepare brisket, ribs and beans overnight.
  • Their wares are then judged by public officials and celebrities the next morning with trophies awarded later that day.
  • The teams go on to serve the public in a fun environment of live music, local beer and a festival atmosphere.

It’s “Brisket, Beer and a Band” in a space that will become Dallas Midtown. This is business-to-business and business-to-consumer networking “with fire and flame” at its best.

The public date for the event is Friday, April 24, 2015, with the team move-in and cooking getting started the day before, Thursday, April 23.

Team sign-ups are $1000/members, $1500/non-members.

Sponsorships include a cooking space, logo on promotional materials, logo banners at event, tickets to the event, VIP access and other benefits start at $3000. See the sponsorship booklet for details or register now.

Individual tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door. Price of admission includes gate pass, food, water and beer.
