Peoples Choice Wing Tasting


All competitors are highly encouraged to participate in the People’s Choice competition.

  1. Wings must be ready for public tasting/judging by 11:00 AM. Event staff will collect wings from cooks and bring the to the People’s Choice Wing Tasting Tent.
  2. The public purchases 5 tickets from event coordinators and exchange a ticket for a wing from event staff in the People’s Choice Wing Tent. When the public purchases 5 tickets they’ll also receive 1 special ticket they will use to vote for their favorite wing.  Event organizers base their ticket sales on the quantity of wings distributed to cooks. Please do not giveaway wings to the public – we control the number of wings to know how many tickets can be sold.
  3. Containers for ticket collection will be provided in the People’s Choice Wing Tasting Tent to collect votes for teams.

-Brisket, Spare Ribs, 1/2 Chicken- Want to be a judge? email [email protected] to get on the list, limited spaces available.

*Because we are adding Brisket this year, many cooks will be cooking overnight. We will try to accommodate trucks/cars to stay close to grill sites as space permits so grilles can rest in their car while they watch their fire overnight. We will not have electricity or water hookups available on site so please plan accordingly if you will want those.

I’m originally from Round Rock just north of Austin. I’m a 2011 graduate of Texas A&M University in College Station(Whoop!). I love to be outside and probably my greatest outdoor activity would have to be fishing or camping. I like to kayak fish on Phelps Lake here in Rockwall or on Hubbard if the weather is nice.
