On Sunday, March 5, six of the Austin’s top chefs and pitmasters will compete at Waller Ballroom, for the American Lamb Jam BBQ Bash Tour. This is the annual multi-city culinary cook-off’s third visit where participants will prepare their most creative lamb dish for the occasion and the chance to compete in the finale event.
Regional chefs and pitmasters will prepare bbq dishes showcasing local lamb. A panel of judges, including some of Austin’s top food media, and attendees will blind taste test each dish and decide on the winner for categories including “Best in Show,” “Most Creative” and “People’s Choice.” The victor of “Best in Show” will be deemed champion and advance to the Nashville finale in September to compete with Lamb Jam winners from Boston, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C., for the chance to earn the title of “Lamb Jam Master.”
Joining the chefs will be local breweries, winemakers and a local distillery serving up delicious beverage pairings. Between bites, attendees can watch butcher demos, meet local shepherds and enjoy live music.
Tickets are $75 a person and can be purchased online here. The American Lamb Board is offering a special on tickets for the remainder of January: buy three and receive a complementary fourth ticket. This event is only open to those who are 21 and older. Minors will not be admitted. For more information visitwww.americanlamb.com or follow the American Lamb Board on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
