Email to a friend
The Championship Cook-Off sponsored by the San Angelo Restaurant Association started in 2010 in efforts to raise money for the scholarship fund and encourage participation in events held during the Stock Show and Rodeo. The event is held on the South end of the 1st Community Federal Credit Union Spur Arena, between it and the old horse barn.

Participation is open to any four person team, which one person must be indicated as the Head or Chief Cook. Each team will submit only one entry in the required Beef Brisket division. There are also optional categories which one entry may be submitted including Pork Spare Ribs and Chicken as well as a speciality category, Jalapeno Poppers, for the title of "San Angelo King Popper" though these do not count in point totals. The Popper division was started in 2012, since poppers are a West Texas delicacy! Belt buckles will be awarded to the four person team that wins each division, Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion plaques will be awarded to the sponsors of the winners. A point system will be used to determine Grand and Reserve Grand Champions.

The entry fee for competition is $400 per team. All checks must be payable to San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo Association. Entries and payment must be submitted by March 27, 2024.

Showmanship has been added this year and will be judged throughout the day. Winner will be announced during the awards and will receive free entry to the 2024 Championship cook-off.

Spectators are invited to visit the cook-off area and sample a variety of offerings from the teams entered.
