Perhaps Walter Hyde is being a tad bit melodramatic with a title, though over time, he is anticipating that a 1st Annual World Famous Cleveland BBQ Throwdown does grow into something flattering spectacular. After all, we gotta start somewhere.
“We wish this to be a yearly eventuality with lots of chefs involved, and maybe even supplement Cleveland breweries interconnected adult with chefs, though suspicion we should start off tiny and build it adult any year,” says Hyde, who along with partner Scott Slagle run a weekend grill ops in a Sterle’s Bier Garden.
That’s precisely where this tasty foe will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sep 12. The grill conflict will array Hyde and Slagle opposite Melissa Khoury and Penny Barend of Saucisson and Adam Lambert of Ohio City Provisions. Each cook will ready one categorical plate and one side dish, any of that will be blindly judged by an “expert” row as good as a all-important Peoples’ Choice.
“I talked to Melissa and Penny from Saucisson and they were all in and afterwards we got Lambert,” Hyde says. “I got propitious given both groups were accessible and are intensely gifted and now me and Slagle have to come with a A game.”
Ticketed guest will any accept one platter containing any of a 3 mains and sides, along with one beer, lemonade, ice tea and snacks. There also will be a plight bar and salsa bar on hand. Guests can squeeze additional beers from a bar after a initial freebie.
Hyde knows that Cleveland gets a bad swat for a grill scene, something he and Slagle have been attempting to pill given their Fat Casual days. But he also knows that a talent is out there, though maybe only need a small proclivity and exposure.
But mostly, Hyde admits, it’s only an forgive to turn adult some friends, fume some meats, and blow off some steam.
“It’s gonna be a chefs’ day off, backyard grill kind of feel with vital bragging rights during stake,” he says.
