In the Lulu’s Farm tradition, we’re mixing it up a bit and also partnering with the Steak Cookoff Association (SCA) to bring the fastest growing cooking organization to Colorado! We are extremely proud and honored to host Colorado’s first official SCA Certified Judge’s Class Friday afternoon (must be a member of SCA to participate), and also Colorado’s first officially sanctioned SCA Steak Competition of 2018 on Friday evening. The Steak Cookoff follows all of the rules and guidelines of the Steak Cookoff Association! Register for SCA Membership and the SCA Judge’s Class.
Friday evening (April 27) enjoy a great selection of libations in our hospitality tent including craft draft brews from local favorite Big Choice Brewing, a variety of crafty cocktails made by the expert mixologists at Mystic Mountain Distillery, and Colorado wines from Bad Bitch Cellars among others, to complement a terrific variety of delicious food vendors (BBQ and others too). We’re also excited to bring you the first SCA sanctioned Steak Cook-off and “Create Your Own Cocktail” competition of 2018 with co-sponsor Christensen Ranch, who are providing the naturally raised antibiotic/growth hormone free rib eye steaks for competitors. If that’s not enough sensory delight for you, add in the awesome live blues/rock stylin’s of the Michael Hornbuckle band. Steak competitors are vying for a $2,000 purse, and cocktail competitors are mixing it up for a winner takes all purse (based on the number of contestants). You do not have to be an SCA member to enter the steak or cocktail competitions! See our competitions page for additional info.
Saturday afternoon (April 28) savor the mouthwatering aroma of serious handcrafted BBQ from original recipes showcased in four competition categories: Chicken, Pork Ribs, Pork Butts, and Beef Brisket. 40 expert level teams from all over Colorado are competing for a $10,000 purse in cash and prizes. Lulu’s Brew & Que is a Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) sanctioned state competition, following all of the rules and guidelines of the prestigious KCBS organization, and our judges are all certified by KCBS. Come on down and enjoy delicious food samplings, a great selection of libations in our hospitality tent, a variety of delicious food vendors (BBQ and others too), the pop/country sounds of Premium Diesel, vendor booths, a fun zone including a “bungee bull”, and the Kids’ Que competition (see our competitions page for Kids’ Que info).
It’s like two events in one—two days of fun for all ages! Both Friday evening and Saturday afternoon events are open to the public and free to attend.
