Kansas City BBQ event comes to East Ridge
EAST RIDGE, Tenn. (WDEF) – If you love barbeque, an event in East Ridge this weekend could satisfy your taste buds, and help local schools at the same time.
It’s called “Fire in the Valley.”
40 professional barbeque teams are coming to Camp Jordan.
This is a sanctioned event sponsored by the Kansas City Barbeque Society, with both pro teams and backyard teams cooking a variety of food.
It also helps raise money for 5 Red Bank schools, and the East Ridge Needy Child fund, according to Chief Organizer Eric McRoy.
“So what we’re doing is trying to raise funds, and make a better impact on our community and our environment here as far as letting everybody taste these new barbecues and smell this new food from 13 to 14 different states.”
The barbeque competition is also taking place on Saturday at Camp Jordan.
