South Florida’s Anticipated Grilling Competition Expands with New BBQ Showcase, Featuring 40 Pit Masters
Fort Lauderdale, FL (July 2018) — The 2018 edition of John Offerdahl’s Gridiron Grill-Off Food, Wine & Music Festival – which makes its return to the Pompano Beach Amphitheater Friday, November 9 – will include an all-new, family-friendly BBQ Pit Masters competition. The competition takes place from 12-5 p.m. on Saturday, November 10, as part of this year’s much- anticipated weekend-long celebration. Attendees will enjoy an authentic experience with craft barbecue, live entertainment, and a family-friendly Kid Zone for adults and children of all ages.
“As our event has grown and evolved over the years, we’ve looked for new ways to involve the community and enhance the overall experience for our guests,” said John Offerdahl, the founder of the Gridiron Grill-Off and former Miami Dolphins All-Pro Linebacker. “We are thrilled to host the first annual BBQ Pit Masters competition this year and look forward to showcasing the talent and passion of grillers from all across the Southeast. This event is an outstanding way for us to give back to the community, and by adding new elements like the BBQ competition, we know we will be able to contribute even more. It’s a great feeling.”
Each year since 2010, the Gridiron Grill-Off has paired celebrity chefs from South Florida’s finest restaurants with NFL legends to create signature grilled dishes. This year, in addition to the new BBQ Pit Masters competition, the festival will include three nights of live concerts and the ultimate tailgate experience during the Dolphins vs. Packers game on Sunday, November 11.
