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 by Hudson Moore, local beer by FC Brewing Co. 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.
