The Edinburg Convention and Visitors Bureau, Edinburg Economic Development Corporation, City of Edinburg, and the Edinburg Chamber of Commerce proudly presents the 14th Annual Texas Cook’Em: High Steaks in Edinburg. On Saturday, July 6th, right after the spectacular fireworks display, Los Lonely Boys will kick off a free concert at H-E-B Park, located at 1616 S. Raul Longoria Rd., in Edinburg.
Throughout the day on Saturday at Texas Cook’Em, there will be LIVE MUSIC by Last Page, Time Machine, Draft, and Solitaire, vendors, a children’s fun zone, and of course the Texas State Championship BBQ Cook-Off! Last year over 120 teams battled it out for the RGV’s biggest BBQ purse of $30,000, and a year’s worth of bragging rights! This IBCA and SCA sanctioned cook off is a Steak Cookoff Association Championship and Kansas City Royal Championship Invitational event. Texas Cook’Em will feature Chicken, Pork Spare Ribs and the prestigious Rib-Eye Steak.
The Grand Champion will be invited to compete at the American Royal in September 2019, in Kansas City Missouri, alongside the best of the best in the competitive barbecue circuit. Steak Champion will be invited to compete at the SCA US Steak Championship with the best steak grillers in the circuit.
“Every year, the best of the best teams in Texas come to compete in Edinburg,” said Ronnie Larralde, executive director for the Edinburg Chamber of Commerce. “Although this event is absolutely free for the public to attend, it gives an economic boost to our community, not to mention it’s always a great time with family and friends celebrating 4th of July weekend.”
FIREWORKS will kick of a FREE concert by Los Lonely Boys.
