The Chamber is excited to bring to Nevada the Low and Slow Barbecue Cook Off. It is planned for September 23rd at the Nevada Elks/VC Fairground. We are planning on 30 pits!!

We are in the process of pulling in national pit teams along with our local pit teams. This event has the potential to be a new tradition for the Nevada area. Our goal is to make our 1st Annual Low and Slow BBQ Cook Off such a success that we sanction it with the KCBS for 2018! Sanctioning comes with national competitors, state championships and tourist!
