Not only is the temperature rising, the bbq grills are getting ready and Chefs are creating secret recipes as preparations for the Boca Burger Battle, A Grilling Affair! returns again for the second year on Saturday, July 13th. More than 20 contenders from all over south Florida will create their grilling masterpieces and present them to a prestige table of Grill Master Judges which includes a few well known "burger conneseuirs" like Sef the Burger Beast, Jamie Frankel from Burgers by the Beach, Stephanie Miskew from the Glamorous Gourmet, and well known celebrity Chef Dean Max in hopes of winning the Golden Burger Trophy and hold the title of the Best Boca Burger. The sizzling summer street festival is held in Sanborn Square Park located in downtown Boca Raton near Palmetto Park Road and Federal Highway.
This community event with its "backyard bbq theme" not only showcases some of the best beef, turkey, fish, and vegetarian burgers that can be found, but also has an array of summer food tasting stations sampling gourmet French fries, onion rings, tropical salads, chicken wings by Tucci's Fire N Coal Pizza, rum cakes, liquor infused ice cream and good old apple pie. Cockspur Rum and Iceberg Vodka will be making its debut at the battle to wet your whistle with Electric Lemonade and Rum Punch. You can also quench your thirst with a variety of Holy Mackerel craft beers, Madria Sangria, Moscato wine and GEM spring water just to mention a few of the Beer, Wine and Spirits selections served this year. Be sure to visit our new Wine Store on your way out and receive Special Discounts on wine by the bottle and by the case!
Boca Burger Battle's Chief Grill Master this is year is Chef Wes Bonner who is Publix Aprons Resident Chef. Wes graduated Summa Cum Laude from Johnson and Wales and has a strong passion for the culinary arts. The Chief Grill Master will oversee all of the Battle's Contenders, create the judging criteria and fiercely lead the Grill Master Judges on their path to burger nirvana. The judges will decide on Best of Show and Best Alternative Burger while the guests get to vote with their wooden chip where the "Peoples Choice" will determine the champion and hold the title for one year as the Best Boca Burger. Defending 2012 champion Rebel House, a "renegade" restaurant & bar in downtown Boca Raton will be back to defend their title. All spatulas down, The Rebel Burger took the Judges Pick and the People's Choice awards for the inaugural event.
This year's battle will introduce the ultimate cooking experience featuring the Big Green Egg, a ceramic kamando-style barbecue grill coming down from Atlanta Georgia. This is the most versatile outdoor cooking product on the market. An additional "eggstavaganza" at the Boca Burger Battle, is the Big Green Egg Cooking Academy will host the interactive Cooking Alley teaching guests all the tips and tricks to cooking pulled pork, brisket, ribs and chicken. And yes, there will be plenty of delicious samplings to go around for everyone.
