Nothing says summer like a barbecue, and for the last 11 years, Steve Starr & Garry Maddox have been pleasing BBQ lovers with their BBQ challenge.  Well to everyone's delight, the challenge is returning on August 11th at Citizens Bank Park.  From 3:30-6:30, a cavalcade of restaurants and grill masters will be cooking up some of the finest barbecue that Philadelphia has to offer. 

The competition will feature teams from a number of Steve Starr restuarants, particularly Continental Mid-town, El Vez, Butcher and Singer, El Rey, Jones and Pod

Along with being a food competition, this is also a charity event that supports the Garry Maddox's nonprofit Youth Golf & Academics Program, a program that promotes education and development of urban youth.

To spice up this event even more is a raffle that offers 6 lucky people the opportunity two have lunch with two Phillies legends, Mike Schmidt and the "Secretary of Defense" Garry Maddox.  Check out more info HERE!
