A competitive grilling tour stops in Rockford Saturday
The sport has had rapid growth over the past few years, and the Sam's club national BBQ tour allows competing teams from across the Midwest a chance to grill their way to 25 thousand dollars in this regional event.
"These teams are competing twenty to thirty weekends a year," said Troy Black, National BBQ Tour Series Director. "During the course of this year there is over thirty million dollars worth of prize money given out on the pro circuit."
Of the 8-thousand national teams, three of the top ten competed in Rockford on Saturday.
