The Great Vegas Gridiron Grill-Off and Tailgate Festival will take over the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center Sept. 6-7 from noon to 6 p.m.

Returning for the fifth time, the Grill-Off will bring back the competitive cooking competition awarding its largest prize of $10,000.

"The Gridiron Grill-Off will bring the world's best barbecue teams to Las Vegas," said Ron Cates, event organizer. "Even though there is big money up for grabs, it's really about more than that. It's about respect among their peers. Those that compete in this contest know the winner will be recognized as the number one barbecue team on the planet."

Sponsored by Kansas City Barbeque Society, competitors will fight for the overall top ten slots in four categories: Chicken, Ribs, Brisket and Pork.

For only $20, the Grill-Off not only includes the high stakes competition but features stage entertainment, grilling demonstrations, games and all-you-can-eat barbecue.

The "Godfather of BBQ," Johnny Trigg, will also make a guest appearance.

The Downtown Las Vegas Events Center is located on the corner of 3rd Street and Carson Avenue across from the D Las Vegas.
