Note: In 2009, the dates for this competition are July 25 and 26.

The 2008 dates are July 26th and 27th. And it definitely seems like great fun. Nothing less than 40 teams are competing and they are coming from everywhere in New England and as far as Texas. But if you want to participate as a competitor, you’ll have to wait until next year, because all the competing spots are already filled. So when the weather is warm and a cold beer and nice BBQ seem like the best thing you get, we imagine that Harpoon Brewery BBQ competition must be the place to be. We’ll be there for sure and we suspect this could become one of our favorite summer events in Vermont. It should make our upcoming Vermont Top Summer Events list if it lives to its expectation. One thing for sure is Harpoon Brewery – one of the top micro-breweries here in Vermont – always seem to have the greatest ideas for fun and well-organized events! We were already there a couple of week-ends ago for the 150-mile bike race (all the way from Boston to Windsor where their headquarters are!), and despite the heavy rain at the end of the afternoon, we definitely enjoyed seeing all these great athletes arriving at the site and sharing a nice cold beer with us! (Yep, we were the lazy ones, just there for the beer!). As usually, if you attend this event in July, we would love to know what you think about it!

    Simply awesome! The “smoking” vendors and incredible fare at this year’s event topped them all. We live about walking distance from the grounds so of course we need to be there anually. My baby brother Dave ( VTBBQ@verizon.net ) got a blue ribbon for his lamb entry this year. His family could not be more proud! This venue of Harpoon’s deserves all the attention it currently enjoys.

    Thanks Jim for the feedback. We were there as well, both Saturday and Sunday, and it was lots of fun… we are planning to write another posting on it. We could smell the BBQ all the way to I89… crazy!
    Beer was good, food was delicious, and the atmosphere was very friendly. By pure chance, I tried the beef briskets of the 1st prize winner before the award was even announced! That was funny!
