Battle of the Briskets! Chefs Compete at The IRONS
On March 31, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., The IRONS is bringing together top New England chefs to battle it out for the title of best brisket.
Each chef will prepare their favorite brisket plus two sides, while attendees sample each meal and vote for people’s favorite.
The two top brisket winners will be awarded “People's Choice” and “Overall Winner” as judged by a Certified Barbecue Judge, Michael P. Carufel. Carufel is a certified judge with The Kansas City BBQ Society and World Food Championships, and he is also a member of the Northeast BBQ Society.
Competing chefs include Shawn O'Regan, The IRONS Restaurant and Bar, Mystic, Conn.; Ed Tremblay, Holiday Inn Boston-Bunker Hill, Boston, Mass.; and Mo Jalil, Madison Beach Hotel, Madison, Conn.
The event will feature live music by Nick Bosse, a native of North Stonington, Conn. who loves the music of country icons from years gone by when times were simple and words were true.
Attendees can also enjoy a beer and bourbon sampling by Two Roads Brewing Company, as well as Slaughter House American Whiskey and Straight Edge Bourbon Whiskey by Splinter Spirits.
Tickets are $25 per person. For each ticket sold, $5 will help support the St. Baldrick's Foundation, an organization committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers.
