Hey all! The weather may be questionable on Saturday but that is nothing we can't deal with in the BBQ world!!

UNFORTUNAETLY, classic cars are not as resilient as we are! So, unfortunately, ECS has had to cancel the car show that was going to take place on Saturday. That also means no food trucks!

We are a little sad that the big car show isn't going to happen, however the BBQ competition WILL NOT be affected at all!!

So, bring yourselves, your tents, campers, space heaters , heated jackets (Q-Jitsu Competition BBQ Team 🤣) whatever you need and get to Wadsworth because we are going to have an AMAZING time!!!

I wanted to reach out to the competing teams. The initial weather forecast is cool and 80% chance of rain early. Plan accordingly.

10/06/2023

One week from today everyone will be loaded in to Wadsworth, Ohio for the Black Box BBQ Championship!!
You should have received an email from Doyle, the event organizer, with some important information. If you didn’t receive it let us know ASAP so we can get it to you!

If you still need your meats, you have 1 more day to get your competition meat Box ordered through Mister Brisket, Inc.!! All meat will delivered to you at Black Box on Friday!!

We are super excited to welcome you all to our home town!!

Many thanks to Doyle and New World Spice & Tea Traders for your amazing sponsorship and all of the time you have put into making this competition happen!! I know it is stressful and has not always been easy, but we are almost to the finish line and I promise, it will be worth it!
Thanks again to the rest of our sponsors,
Hank and Mister Brisket, Inc.
Bunny Dennison - Full Time Realtor and Great Lakes BBQ Association
Thanks to ECS Tuning for all your assistance and the awesome car show! Wadsworth Municipal Airport and the City of Wadsworth - for allowing us the space to put this competition on and your support!
