The Episcopal Community Foundation for Middle and North Georgia is excited to host our first BBQ Competition on November 10, 2017 at the 111th Annual Council! Teams will cook Boston butts to compete to earn a prize which will be awarded to their parish for outreach! Register for dinner at

The event will begin after the Friday Annual Council activities have concluded, and attendees will have the opportunity to taste BBQ from around the Diocese! In addition to tastings, a BBQ buffet dinner will be provided by the Episcopal Holy Smokers in the parish hall with delicious food and great desserts! To round out the fun, we'll also enjoy the music of Peachtree Station Bluegrass Band
