Cookin’ For A Cause

No one has ever confused bbq with health food.

But this month the Downtown Merchants Association invites Westporters to cook for a cause.  Teams of 2-4 backyard chefs can enter any of 3 categories — chicken, ribs and chef’s choice.   Winners receive a prizes — and the money raised from each team’s $100 entry fee is donated the Connecticut Food Bank.

The event — set for the Levitt Pavilion — is part of the 2nd annual Blues Views and BBQ Festival.  “Cookin’ for a Cause” setup begins at 6 a.m. on Saturday, September 26.  Judging is at 3 p.m., leaving plenty of time to get the meat and sauce just right.  (Charcoal or wood heat sources only; no gas, electric grills or open pits.  And teams supply their own food.)

All day Saturday and Sunday there’s a craft beer showcase, activities for kids and families, a food court — and of course music.  What’s bbq without blues?

So forget the calories.  The hell with cholesterol.  It’s time to start cookin’ some meat for a cause.
