In November, downtown Tampa was ablaze with the tantalizing aromas of smoky goodness as Grillable Hours, a team passionate about the art of barbecue, showcased their skills at the BBQ Love Fest. And boy, did they bring the heat – both in flavor and community spirit!
Claiming the Reserve Champion honors was just the cherry on top for Grillable Hours, whose mouthwatering creations had attendees lining up for more. From brisket burnt ends to pork belly burnt ends, chargrilled oysters with pork belly, seared scallops with Asian chili glaze, and smoked salmon with remoulade and caviar, their menu was a symphony of flavors that left taste buds tingling and stomachs satisfied.
But beyond the culinary triumphs, what truly made the event special was the sense of community and camaraderie that permeated the air. The BBQ Love Fest wasn't just about food – it was about coming together for a good cause and making a meaningful impact on the lives of others.
The event proudly raised funds for three remarkable organizations: the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance, Operation BBQ Relief, and the Special Operations Memorial Foundation. By indulging in delectable dishes and enjoying the festivities, attendees not only treated themselves but also contributed to noble causes, embodying the spirit of giving back.
Grillable Hours extends heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported the event, whether through attendance, voting for their food, or simply spreading the word. The success of the BBQ Love Fest wouldn't have been possible without the unwavering support of the community.
A special shoutout goes to the incredible team behind Grillable Hours, whose dedication and talent brought their vision to life. From the grill masters to the kitchen wizards, each member played a crucial role in delivering an unforgettable culinary experience. You grilled your way into our hearts indeed!
As the embers of the BBQ Love Fest fade into memory, the spirit of generosity and community lingers on. Grillable Hours looks forward to future opportunities to ignite passions, tantalize taste buds, and make a positive impact in the community. Until then, keep the fires burning and the BBQ love alive!
