North Metro Fire Rescue District and Northglenn Police Department are coming together to host the 2nd Annual Red and Blue BBQ Cook-Off on June 1 in Northglenn. The family-friendly event will include a BBQ competition, live music, kids activities and vendors, all while raising funds for two charities that support fallen or seriously injured first responders in Colorado.
The event will run from 12-4 p.m. at E.B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park in Northglenn and is free to the public. Those wanting to sample BBQ from the cook-off teams can purchase tickets at the event ($3/BBQ sample). All proceeds from ticket sales and overall profits from the event will go directly toward two non-profits, Colorado Professional Firefighters Foundation and Colorado C.O.P.S. (Concerns of Police Survivors), which support Colorado first responders who have been killed or seriously injured in the line of duty.
North Metro Fire and Northglenn Police will square off in a head-to-head battle for the champion whole hog cooker. Other teams representing area fire and police agencies, as well as local pitmasters, will compete in the categories of chicken, pork ribs and brisket. Side dishes will be sold by local Boy Scout troops.
Live music will be provided throughout the day. Additionally, Northglenn Rotary Club will provide a beer and wine tent for attendees to pair with their BBQ.
