Forrest and Fields to Sponsor Wurst Cook

WURST COOK  presented by Forrest and FieldsScreen Shot 2015-08-25 at 9.18.04 AM

 

Seriously, isn’t the name of this contest reason enough to enter? Wurst cook is a bratwurst cooking competition at PorktoberQue.

You don’t have to be a professional competition barbecue team to take part in some of the cooking competitions at PorktoberQue. We have two Friday night cooking competitions that welcome anyone of any age or skill level to participate. One is a baked bean competition (beancontest.com) and this competition, Wurst Cook. A wurst is a type of German sausage. The most commonly known wurst are bratwurst and knockwurst in the United States.

Each contestant will receive the wurst to be included in the entry. They may prepare it any way they like, and can add or combine any ingredients or garnishes with the wurst.

Each contestant must be present at the team meeting at 4:30 at the Farm Center to receive their wurst (type to be determined the day of the contest). Contestants will also receive a specially marked box to turn in their creation in at precisely 7:30 to the same building.

Winners will be presented cash and prizes on Saturday at 5:30 on the main stage.

Plus  there’s the great prizes you can win, if you recipe/dish/creation is chosen as one of the top 5. But really, it’s about the fun of competition and the great value you get when you enter.

When you pre-register you will receive 4 admission tickets to PorktoberQue. (this is a $16 value alone!) You will get to attend the team meeting, receive the bratwurst or other wurst used in the competition, and will be given a spot to set up your grill or dutch oven to compete on Friday night. You turn in your entry at 7:30 (precisely) and awards are given on Saturday. You can use 2 tickets on Friday night and 2 on Saturday if you like! Winner need not be present at awards- they can pick up any prizes the Monday after the event at the office located at 257 South Saint Andrews Street in Dothan, AL.
