Texas Tech’s Raider Red Meats to Host Third Annual Barbecue Cook-Off


Another barbecue cook-off is coming up later this month.

Texas Tech’s Raider Red Meats will host their third annual Barbecue Cook-off on August 23rd and 24th.

The event will be held in the S1 parking lot north of the soccer fields at Texas Tech Parkway and 10th Street, west of University Medical Center.

Master and amateur grillers alike are able to participate in the divisions of chicken, ribs, brisket, and beans.

The entry fee is 125 per team and covers all four categories.

Check-in and set-up will begin at noon on Friday, August 23rd, and a head cooks’ meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Friday in the hospitality tent.

Judging will begin Saturday with beans at 11 a.m., chicken at noon, ribs at 1 p.m., and brisket at 3 p.m. Awards will be given out by 5 p.m. at the hospitality tent.

The event is only open to participants and judges, though Bradley Price, director of Raider Red Meats, said that he hopes the event can serve as an opportunity for community members to come out and sample barbecue from the best cooks in Texas in the future.

“We were excited about the event’s success last year and hope it will continue to grow,” said Price. “Subsequent events could raise funds for scholarships, research, and competitive teams that represent Texas Tech University.”

The registration form and additional information is available at

Judges are also needed for the event. To volunteer, contact Shelbi Knisley at
