The Odessa Chamber of Commerce has scheduled the Basin BBQ Blowout, a two-day event featuring local businesses and cooking teams competing for the title of the best BBQ in the Permian Basin.

This event will take place Oct. 20 in downtown Odessa. The gates open to the public at 5 p.m. and the cook-off commences.

Cooking and event sponsors will be included in all publicity including all Chamber publications and listed on Basin BBQ Blowout posters and banners. Other available sponsorships: Apron Sponsor, Cap Sponsor, and Towel Sponsor. Each of these will feature the company logo along with Basin BBQ Blowout logo.

A drawing for a large cooker on a trailer with a storage box is scheduled for the same day. This is a custom made BBQ cooker that can be transported from place to place. Tickets will be on sale prior to the event and on the day of the event.

For more information about this event or to sign up your cooking team, call Lynn Van Amburgh at 432-333-7862 or email opsdir@odessachamber.com.
