Last weekend, my mom and I participated in a grilling contest. Craig True Value, in Darlington, WI, hosted the first ever “Grillin’ for a Cause” grilling contest during Canoefest. We created a delicious little taste of Jamaica, Jerk Shrimp Skewers served with grilled pineapple, onion and green pepper!
From brisket to shrimp, wild turkey and more, there was plenty to feast on. Taste testers (aka the voters) could pay $5 to sample each participants entry. All proceeds were donated to the Veteran’s memorial fundraiser. Take a look at how the event went below!
Here’s a look at our appetizing shrimp skewers!
Oh yeah, I am a professional griller!
My mom calls out the "schmoozers". If they like our entry, they like our entry!
They are thoroughly enjoying our satisfying jerk shrimp!
Best bacon EVER!
Lucky Acres definitely gets first place for presentation!
CRAP! Our coals went out!!! Ok, ok, ok...so maybe we're not professionals. But admit it, we had you fooled.
Everyone who participated in the contest!
Congrats to Tom! Your wild turkey, pork and beef roast amazed the crowd!
I think everyone had a great time. Craig True Value had an excellent turn out, raising $1,100. I can't wait for next year.
