Thank you to everyone who sponsored, competed or attended the 6th Annual Smokin' on the Creek Amateur Barbecue Competition. We raised a record breaking $43,000 for Project Deale and the Senior Dog Sanctuary of Maryland.


Attention all backyard chefs! If you're passionate about Sunday grilling and confident in your skills,  join our amateur barbecue competition!  We have 20 slots available. Gather your friends, create a unique team name, and get grillin'! 

We expect competitor spots to sell out fast.

Please note that this isn't a KCBS event but rather a backyard BBQ competition for amateur cooks.

Professional caterers and teams will be disqualified.


Registration will open April 1, 2025 at 9 AM.

Independent Consultants

If you're an independent consultant who may sell jewelry, candles, bags or anything of that nature we'd love to have you at our event! For $100 you get a 10x10 space to display your merchandise anyway you like.

Registration will open April 1, 2025 at 9 AM.

Food Vendors

If you're a local food business that is interested in setting up and selling your food at this year's event, please fill out a vendor application! We like to have about 3-4 different types of food options for the public to buy from.  In the past we've had crab cakes, funnel cakes, snow cones, bbq, and subs!
