Do you cook the best steak in your neighborhood? Are you the king of your cul-de-sac? This Saturday 17th November 2018 the Kangaroo Valley Craft Beer & BBQ Festival is about to settle this once and for all by hosting an Steak Cookoff Association International Cook-Off. Let's see just who exactly can rule the grill!
The SCA is a unique BBQ competition where teams all use the same cut of meat. It's a 1 1/8" Boneless Choice Ribeye Steak to be exact.This benefits both cook teams and cookoffs by implementing standardized rules and equal competitive opportunities for each team.
The SCA's primary focus is STEAK, our goal is to create a fun relaxed environment and a fair competition. It's about cooking not who has the most money. SCA events provide all the steaks to ensure a level playing field for teams. Our double blind judging process adds to the integrity and the best cook that day wins. The Steak Cookoff Association is dedicated to building the sport of steak cookoffs.
Every cookteam likes to know the rules, know the judging tent is run with integrity, that payouts are guaranteed and that they have an equal opportunity to win. All SCA sanctioned cookoffs will have a "SCA Representative" on site to run the judging area and be an ambassador to the cookteams. The SCA Representative will be trained and know all the rules and regulations of an SCA cookoff. The SCA Rep on Duty will be Trent Lawrence.
SCA was founded in late 2013 by Brett Gallaway and Ken Phillips at the time there were only 9 steak cookoffs in the United States. In 2014 SCA sanctioned 19 events, in 2015 SCA Sanctioned 47 events including Europe and Canada, 2016 SCA sanctioned 87 events and in 2017 SCA sanctioned 116 events with events in the US, Japan, Canada, Belgium, The Netherlands, The UK, Germany and Australia. 2018 is shaping up to be another great year with an estimated 180 events including new events in Austria, Canada, Italy, Mexico, Switzerland, the Caribbean and New Zealand. Join the excitement and help grow the sport of steak cookoffs.
