The Raider Red Meats BBQ & Ribeye Championship will be held August 25th and 26th highlighting cooks locally and nationwide while raising scholarship funds for Texas Tech University students.

Sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, the competition serves as the Texas state championship and is open to competitors around the nation.

Thirteen states were represented in last year’s competition, and a collegiate division has been added this year.

“Having a big-name sanctioning body over our event like the Kansas City Barbecue Society really sets us apart,” said Tate Corliss, director of Raider Red Meats.

Raider Red Meats, a part of the Meat Science & Muscle Biology program, has funded scholarships for Texas Tech students since 1982.

All proceeds from this event will go into the Raider Red Meats Endowment Fund to sponsor scholarships for students in the College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources.

This marks the 10th year for the cookoff, which involves CASNR students throughout the process, working all aspects of the event, including the sponsor’s dinner.

“It’s a great thing for the students to be involved with the BBQ and Ribeye championship,” Corliss said. “They get to interact with people from across the country who are lessening their financial burden, and the sponsors get to interact with some of the students who are receiving funds from their donation.”

The competition will take place in the Animal and Food Sciences building parking lot (Commuter West) on the Texas Tech campus.

Team entry fee is $275 and cooks are invited to compete in a steak contest and four meat divisions: chicken, ribs, pork and brisket.

Check-in, setup and cooking will begin Friday (Aug. 25) followed by a sponsor’s dinner and entertainment. Judging of these events will be on Saturday (Aug. 26), followed by an awards ceremony at 5:00 p.m.
