29th Annual AGC BBQ Cook-Off
June 18-19, 2021

The Houston commercial construction industry came together for AGC Houston’s Annual Barbecue Cook-Off and Fair June 18 and 19, 2021. Twenty cook teams competed in categories that included best theme and best margarita, salsa, bloody Mary, dessert, ribs, brisket, and chicken.

This year’s event raised funds for Paws for Heroes, a nonprofit organization that rescues homeless dogs and professionally trains them to serve as companion dogs for veterans suffering from PTSD, at no cost to the veteran. A big thank you to all of the participating teams, sponsors, volunteers and attendees for supporting the event.

Congratulations to Grand Champion, Mason Road Sheet Metal; Reserve Grand Champion, The Beck Group, Team 1, and to all the winning teams. Special congratulations as well to Lance Smith of Hoar Construction who received the Ralph Morton Spirit Award.
