San Antonio, Texas - Texas Trophy Hunters Association™ (TTHA) is proud to announce the third annual "TTHA's Bucks and BBQ" State Championship BBQ Cook-Off and Food Drive to take place March 8-9, 2013 at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio. BBQ teams from all over the great state of Texas and beyond will compete for cash and prizes at this Texas State BBQ Championship event sanctioned by the International Barbeque Cookers Association (IBCA).
Our goal is to provide BBQ teams with a well-organized event and the public with a great experience and fun time. There will be BBQ, exhibitors, and the opportunity to enter TTHA's 1stAnnual Charity Clay Shoot at the National Shooting Complex, which will all take place on Saturday, March 9th.
Each member of every team (up to 5 people per team) signed up in the cook-off will receive a 1-year membership to TTHA (a $174.75 value.) Categories include brisket, pork spare ribs, chicken, beans and the coveted wild game. In addition to the food categories, there will also be a showmanship award given to the team with the "best setup" in their team space. At least $5,000 in cash plus additional prizes will be given away during the event with payouts for first through sixth places in all categories (brisket, pork spare ribs, chicken, beans and wild game-open.)
TTHA recognizes that while the BBQ teams compete for fun, glory and prizes, many people in the San Antonio area go hungry every day. Therefore, TTHA has teamed up with the San Antonio Food Bank to raise awareness and to add a much needed boost to the community pantry. The San Antonio Food Bank fights hunger in Southwest Texas through food distribution, programs, education and advocacy. All teams and attendees at the TTHA Bucks and BBQ event are asked to bring canned goods, other non-perishable food items and/or monetary donations. Collection bins will be on site for donations.
