Wake Burn Center and ABA Southern Region BBQ Cookoff

CarolinaFireJournal -

10/14/2011 -

The WFBMC Burn Center is the host for this year’s 24th Annual American Burn Association Southern Region Meeting in December in Winston-Salem, N.C.  The closing banquet on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2011 will host a real North Carolina BBQ Dinner.


The plan is to sponsor a N.C. fire service BBQ Cook-off and Contest (a la World Burn 2008 in Raleigh) during the day, with the meat cooked being the entrée for dinner that night. 

We are looking for interested firefighters, fire departments, and others in the N.C .fire service who would enter a team in the Cook-off. Competition will be held for “Best” chicken, “Best” Lexington-style pork, and “Best” Eastern-style pork, with prizes awarded.

All meat will be provided. The cooking venue will be an open parking lot just north of the Benton Convention Center and just south of WSFD Station No. 1.

Please contact Chris Craig, PA-C at [email protected] to register or inquire. We need all interested parties to notify us ASAP, to allow appropriate planning.
