    2017 Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ Contest

    The Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ, scheduled for Saturday, September 9th, 2017, is now accepting applications for BBQ Contestants. Please see the entry form at this link to our website.

    Last year, we had a surprise added award - The Glen Ellyn Cup. This is a traveling award that goes to the highest scoring BBQ team that is from Glen Ellyn. The inaugural winner was Chris Goebbert of team "Spork". Winners names will be added to the base of the trophy each year. Who will be the best BBQ-er in Glen Ellyn this year? You? Only one way to prove it.

    Slots tend to fill up fast. So get your entry form and fill it out today.

    The Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ is a fundraiser to benefit Bridge Communities – a non-profit organization that is committed to transforming the lives of homeless families through partnering with talented, resourceful individuals and groups in our community to provide housing, mentoring and empowerment to families, moving them towards a goal of self sufficiency.

    See our website at
    http://www.glenellynbackyardbbq.org

    The Competition is now half full. Or half empty, depending on your point of view................


    We have 10 Glen Ellyn based teams out of the 30 that are signed up.

    Do you think you can beat them and claim the Glen Ellyn Cup? Yes? Then download the entry form and prove it.


    Here is the link.

    Can people actually taste the BBQ? We went the first year but haven't been able to go the last few so unsure how it works now. Thanks!

    The event will have food vendors selling food to the general public and some will be selling BBQ, some will be selling other fare. I'm not sure which vendors have signed the contracts, otherwise I'd call them out by name.

    But anyway, if you are asking about the competitors then I must say no. It's not my rule. Per DuPage County Health Department, competitors are prohibited from giving food to the public, as it is against health codes. All food served to the public has to be prepared by an entity permitted to do so, etc. etc. etc. The only thing the public can taste is the sauce from contestants that are vying for the People's Choice Sauce award. And that is because you buy tokens to vote with and have become a "judge" in the contest.
