A whole host of amazing restaurants will compete in a no-holds-barred Chef Thunderdome. All competitors will be provided delicious pork or chicken to prepare as they wish. The only rule: it must be smoked. Celebrity judges will be on hand to rate the competitors with the help of the people. Steinbeck’s will be spinning old school R&B, hip-hop and soul.
Tickets are $45.00 per person, which includes unlimited tastes from 18 restaurants; two alcohol tickets for beer from sponsor Creature Comforts Brewing Co., wine or cocktails designed by Miles Macquarrie; and a souvenir tasting glass from Creature Comforts and Steinbeck's. Yes, seriously. Festival proceeds benefit Giving Kitchen. Get your tickets here.
