Chillin’ N Grillin’ BBQ ComPITition


What’s it about? 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE COMPETITION The Chillin’ and Grillin’ BBQ Cook Off is a partnership between the Concerned Citizens for the Development of North Fontana, the Fontana Police Officers Association, the City of Fontana and the Fontana Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the event is to support and sustain “UNITY in      CommUNITY”- community-police working together. It is all focused on building trust-based relationships with our communities. The goal is to continue working together to keep us all safe from crime so we can prosper as a region and as individuals. We help build trust-based relationships through communication with something as simple and as Biblical as “breaking bread” together. 

When and where is it? 

Chill N Grill app 2021 Sept 18, 2021 -11:00- 3:00pm

 Sports Pavilion Jessie Turner-Fontana Park

 15556 Summit Ave, Fontana, Ca 92336

 Set up and Logistics On Friday, September 17, 2021 starting at 5:00 PM - you will be able to set up your barbecue equipment, obtain the meat so you can prepare it the way you want for the cook off. If you want to camp out for the night you can set-up your RV in the parking lot to the east of the pavilion. 


The barbecue area is the concrete sidewalk/roadway between the Sports Pavilion (giant tent) and the swimming pool. It was constructed to accommodate fire trucks so it can accommodate your trucks and trailers and other equipment. You will be preassigned an area to set up your barbecue. Your team name and your area should be written in chalk on the concrete. EQUIPMENT You will need to provide your own grill and/or smoker, cooking utensils including knives, tongs, spatulas, cutting boards, clean-up spray, towels, sanitary gloves, serving trays, chafing dishes, and of course your secret recipes, sauces, rubs, spices. We recommend you bring a work table and at least one easy-up for outside and one easy-up or signage for inside. Tables and chairs will be provided inside the Sports Pavilion for serving. Chillin' & Grillin' BBQ Sept 18, 2021 - 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM Page 2 Food preparation is outside of the Sports Pavilion but the attendees will get their food inside the Sports Pavilion. You will need one team member to take the food from the barbecue pit into the Sports Pavilion where the food is served. You will need at least one team member to serve the food inside the Sports Pavilion. We will provide tables and chairs inside the Sports Pavilion for serving. Tables and chairs will NOT be provided for your outside work station. You should supply signage for the serving area denoting the name of your team. We will NOT supply serving trays or chafing dishes. Water is NOT available on-site. If you do not have a self-contained unit with fresh water and a sink you should bring a portable cleaning station. As an example, you can bring a large igloo type water container with an on/off valve along with soap and a basin to capture the gray water. Inside the Sports Pavilion we will provide paper plates, utensils and napkins for the attendees. Drinking water and other beverages will be sold inside by the organizing committee. There are restrooms near-by but they are the standard stainless-steel institutional facilities. 


We will provide you with the meat for the competition. We estimate 400 people will attend and we will provide you a sufficient amount of meat based on that figure. We provide the meat to ensure that everyone uses the same quality and grade of meat. Most of the teams supply their own special cuts of meat for the judges. Your food presentations need to be ready by 11:00 AM so entries can be judged in a timely manner. You can begin barbecuing Friday afternoon and that is why camping overnight may be a good option for your team. Also at 11:00 AM, the doors open to the public. CAMPING If you decide to camp overnight there are no hook ups. It is dry camping in the parking lot. We ask that you respect the fact that it is a city park and conduct yourselves accordingly as representatives of your agency and or association. No fires on the ground and kindly pick up any litter or debris. 


Electricity is not available in the event area, however the area is well lit. Because you will cook in close proximity to the crowd and music it is best to use inverter generators. We ask that you place a tarp or mat under your food prep area to keep the concrete surface free from stains and grease. We expect you to clean up any spills. It is recommended that you have a canopy cover for your barbecue equipment. From time to time the wind blows very hard in Fontana. Therefore we ask that your easy-ups, canopies, tents and floor mats are secured and weighted down. You will supply all other food handling and safety requirements including plastic gloves, hair nets, fire extinguishers, etc. The County Health Department is expected to be there and conduct inspections for proper use. After the event is concluded all barbecues, materials, vehicles and trash must be removed by 4:00 PM. Chillin' N Grillin' BBQ Sept 18, 2021 - 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM Page 3 What is the menu? You will be asked to prepare two categories of meats which are pork ribs and chicken. The meat will be provided to you sometime after 5:00 PM on Friday, September 17, 2021, at the Sports Pavilion - 15556 Summit Ave., Fontana.
