A special thank you to our Bluegrass BBQ Platinum Sponsor, Wilcox & Barton, Inc. This event is made possible because of a massive 20-foot smoker that can provide smoked delicacies for the entire event. The smoker’s creator, Bill Wilcox, has a passion for fire, flavor, and giving back to the community, so he established Rock House BBQ as the nonprofit philanthropy arm of his environmental, geotechnical and civil engineering company, Wilcox & Barton, Inc.

BIG thanks to Concord Food Co-op, too! Not only are they are a CCEH Pillar of Support, but they are generously providing staff, supplies, kitchen space and helping CCEH promote this event with their media partners!
