Lincoln County and Fayetteville City FFA Chapters will be competing in the Tennessee Beef Council’s Third Annual Grill Master Beef BBQ Competition during the 2018 Tennessee State Fair.

The event is aimed at teaching high school agricultural education students about the beef industry and proper cooking techniques all while participating in a fun, competitive grilling competition.

The FFA Grill Master Beef BBQ Competition will be at 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 15, at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.

Along with Lincoln County and Fayetteville City, other chapters competing include Mt. Juliet FFA, Woodbury FFA, Smyrna FFA, Macon FFA, Westview FFA, Hendersonville FFA, Siegel FFA and Station Camp FFA.

Team members must complete an online Master Beef Advocate training prior to competition which develops their knowledge of the beef industry from farm to fork. On the day of competition, three high school members will work together with their adult coach to prepare a beef-based dish which will be judged based on presentation and taste.

Prize money will be awarded to winning FFA chapters to support their chapter’s activities.
