Kosher Barbecue? Sure, Why Not

Twenty crews are competing to be the barbecue kings at this Jewish cook off.

Do kosher and a barbecue go together? Why, yes they do at the Jewish Community Center of Southern Nevada BBQ Cook-off & Festival on Sunday, Oct. 19, from noon to 4 p.m. at the Temple Beth Sholom parking lot.

The event features a kosher barbecue cook off, 18 chefs judging the competition, barbecue fare, kosher beer and wine, a man cave sporting NFL games and cigar rolling, a Ladies’ Lounge featuring massages and nail polish swag, a video game lounge for the kids, cupcake decorating and more.

During the event, 20 teams face off to determine who has the best brisket, beef ribs and beans, along with who has the best team name and booth design. The teams compete for cash prizes totaling $1,800.  

Rick Moonen of RM Seafood, Stephen Hopcraft of STK, Brian Howard of Comme Ça and Angelo Sosa of the former Poppy Den are among the judges. A kosher food truck from John Courtney plans to serve sliders and skewers.

All proceeds go to the Jewish Community Center of Southern Nevada and their Camp K’helah scholarship program.

Tickets are $10 for children under 18 and seniors 65 and over. Adults 18 and over are $15. To purchase tickets head here, It’sOnMe mobile gifting or call 702-794-0090.
