Grilling at the Fort is a fully sanctioned Steak Cook-off Association (SCA) event that draws cook teams from all over the country working the grills and vying for cash, trophies, SCA and Bama-Q points races and most importantly – bragging rights. The day will consist of a double steak cook-off with a single ancillary competition featuring beef taco. There will be a “Local Hero” awards program with a unique prize package for the Baldwin or Mobile County based cook team having the highest score in steak. For more information and to register for the go to: SCA – Bama-Q Grilling at the Fort. 

In addition to watching these grill masters in action, attendees to this free, family-friendly event will enjoy shopping at our local vendors market, cooking demonstrations and sampling some local food offerings. Of course, the restaurants and bars of the Fort Park will also be offering specials throughout the day and live music in the evening. 

To support those cooks who may be new to the SCA process, a SCA Cooking Class will be held in mid-April. Additionally, for those foodies interested in learning how to judge these steak events, a SCA Judge Certification Class will be held on Friday, May 13th. Both will take place on site at Fort Park.
