TULSA, OK – May 10, 2014 — Over 30 Hasty-Bake enthusiasts will compete at Hasty Bake’s 5th Annual BBQ Contest, Saturday May 10th. The contest is designed for Hasty-Bake owners to compete and determine a 2014 Grand Champion.

“This event is designed to let our passionate owners compete for bragging rights in a very casual atmosphere,” said Richard Alexander, Hasty-Bake Owner and President. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate spring then hosting this year’s contest and the passion of our craftsmanship in making the finest charcoal ovens in the world.”

Hasty Bake hosts the annual competition to show off the best of the best in Oklahoma-based barbecue grilled to perfection on genuine Hasty Bake Oven Grills. In addition to the contest, Ken Schafer, owner of The Boston Deli Grill and Market will hold BBQ demonstrations where attendees can learn tips and enjoy free samples of delicious, melt in your mouth barbecue.
