The Finger Lakes Fire & Smoke BBQ Festival & Competition is proudly brought to you by The Shortsville Smokers BBQ Team. Combining our passion for BBQ and for education, our mission is to raise funds through BBQ to establish and fund college scholarships in our community.
The Shortsville Smokers BBQ Team started as a hobby in 2006. The food was bad but the encouragement was good from friends and family! Luckily, it didn't take long before the food was edible. We began competing the following year. Little did we know home BBQ and competition BBQ were not the same! We didn't place in anything that first year, but we learned a great deal and practiced our skills. The next year, we were awarded a 10th place in chicken at one competition and we were named Grand Champion at another! Since then we have been competing in several contests each year, often winning awards.
Make a donation through this site, we will send you a recipe in thanks, and 100% of your funds will go towards scholarships for local college students. Thank you for your support and for helping to make our community a better place!
