Firemans Light BBQ Cook-off

Join us for the first ever Firemans Light BBQ Cook-off brought to you by Burnt Orange Bleeders! 

Our taproom will open at 11am, and we’ll kick off with Micheladas and Breakfast tacos for purchase. Throughout the day, we’ll have live music from Garrett T. Capps and Mayeux and Broussard, beers & cocktails for purchase, plus BBQ plates from Burnt Orange Bleeders. Food proceeds will all benefit Lone Star Paralysis Foundation. 

Want to get the full Firemans Light BBQ Cook-off experience? Purchase a GA ticket!

General Admission Tickets are available for $15, and will include:

  • A Custom Souvenir Cup
  • 2 beers
  • Access to the Burnt Orange Bleeders sponsored Frito Pie Bar

There is no charge to enter the normal brewery taproom, and your beer tokens can be used either upstairs or downstairs. Proceeds of the GA tickets will also benefit Lone Star Paralysis Foundation.


Teams will compete in 3 categories: Brisket, Ribs and Chicken. There are a limited number of cooking slots available on a first come, first served basis.
