Smokin' J's BBQ, Community Q, Dave Poe's BBQ, and Grand Champion BBQ are joining forces this Friday, August 23 and Saturday, August 24th to raise funds for the Atlanta Downs Syndrome Association by competing and selling world class BBQ at the 2013 Pigs & Peaches BBQ competition at Adams park, Kennesaw, GA. The D.A.D.S BBQ Dream Team organized by Smokin J's pitmaster, Jeff Rittman and Community Q's pitmaster, David Roberts, hopes to sell well over a ton of BBQ in just a little over 24 hours with all the proceeds going to Down's Syndrome research. Each of the participating restaurants is donating labor and food for the event and the list of local supporters includes Whole Foods, Sysco, Lowe's, Riverview Farms, and Royal Oak charcoal. Down's Syndrome research is particularly close to the hearts of the particpating restaurant cook teams. Jeff Rittman's son, Jax, was born with Downs Syndrome. This is the first year for the D.A.D.S BBQ Dream Team fundraiser.
On Saturday the BBQ Dream Team will be visited by WSB-TV's Justin Farmer as well as Cameron, Heather, Rie, Jess, Ashley, Aleria and Hope from the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders.
In addition to competing for the Pigs & Peaches Grand Champion title, the BBQ All Stars will be vending a massive menu of BBQ goodies - Pulled Pork, Ribs, Brisket, Pulled Chicken, Mac-n-Cheese, Baked Beans, Collard Greens, Cole Slaw, and Smokin' J's famous Pineapple Express are all on the menu this weekend. Come and get it before the meat sells out! All proceeds go to Downs Syndrome research.
