September 12, 2015
World Championship Squirrel Cook Off
Our event is the finest wild game cook off, anywhere. We focus on the ability of the team to create a meal out of the other brown meat squirrel (limb chicken/Tree Bacon). The teams are made up of 2 or 3 individuals who will combine squirrel (80% of the total meat) along with whatever other ingredients to create an entrée along with a side item. In past years we have had teams turn in dishes such as—tamales, pizza, sausage, cashew squirrel, stir-fry, gumbo, dumplings, fried, squirrel eggrolls, and many other amazing dishes. We have had teams from across the country compete for the title, so far 11 states have had representation. All of the squirrels are harvested using legal means and methods, teams shall provide their own meat, supplies and decoration. Special help can be given for meat supply if traveling across the country. Corporate sponsorship is available.
