Contestants are responsible for furnishing their own grills, utensils and presentation materials, must be at least 18 years old and may have one assistant. There is no entry fee.

Each entry will receive a $10 beef certificate, and first place will receive a $100 beef certificate, followed by certificates for $50, $25, $10 and $10. A $25 culinary presentation award will also be granted. Judging will begin at 4:45 p.m.
