That’s right, this coming Saturday, July 31st, Joe and Chef Sal will be competing in The Great Hot Dog Cookoff!!

20 amateur chefs will be competing to create the ultimate hot dog. TailgateJoe will be there with their “competition spec” mexican hot dog, dubbed “The Sanchize Dog.” It is going to be a great big block party in Brooklyn at Kelso Brewery with plenty of free beer and great food, and all for a great cause!

From the competition website:

The Great Hot Dog Cookoff started as a modest, friendly, cooking competition for Kara Masi and her friends 5 years ago. 50 people hanging out around the grill in year one grew to 100 the next year, and 175 the next. After three years of running the hot dog cookoffs out of Kara Masi‘s backyard, we upgraded to the headquarters  of lead sponsor, Kelso Brewery, in Clinton Hill in 2009 and brought on co-organizers Jennie Gustafson and Melissa Sands. We’ll be doing it up again at the Brewery for the 2010 5th Annual Cookoff. This culinary competition and fundraiser has raised over $8,000 to date for local charities including City Harvest, BARC Animal Shelter and the Food Bank of New York City. This year alone, we’re aiming to raise another $8,000 with the help of 300 hungry guests, 20 teams of fierce amateur chefs, and great line-up of generous sponsors and volunteers.

This is the first Team TailgateJoe competition, we plan on doing a bunch of them. If you run or know of a great cooking competition let us know about it!
