2016 Cherokee Strip Cook-Off

Welcome to the Professional Today - Cherokee Strip Cook-Off website.

Our 2016 Cherokee Strip Cook-off is September 16th & 17th

Help us Celebrate our 30th year!....Join us Saturday, September 17, 2016 for fun, food and a weekend full of entertainment and competition at one of the most beautiful cook-off venues anywhere!

The 30th Annual Cherokee Strip Cook-off will once again be held on the banks of Lake Ponca in Ponca City, Oklahoma. The cook-off is a State Championship and sanctioned by KCBS. You will have an opportunity to taste some of the best barbeque available cooked by professional cooks. Activities include musical entertainment, and a People’s Choice award given to the crowd-selected favorite BBQ and Chili.

 This year’s raffle will be a Cooking Class which will include a certified KCBS judging class. We will also raffle a Cookshack Smoker. Raffle tickets are $1.00 each or 6 tickets for $5.00 which can be bought through any PT member or can be purchased at the Herb Festival June 3, 2016 at Professional Today's booth selling water and raffle tickets.


The Cherokee Strip Cook-off is now a OKBS Cleaver Team of the Year Event.

There is FREE ADMISSION to the event. Tasting kits will be sold in advance for $5 and can be purchased from a Professional Today member, the Chamber of Commerce or any bank. If you wait to purchase at the cook-off the cost will be $7. Each tasting kit will include two ballots to vote for your favorite BBQ and Chili teams. The top three winners receive cash prizes.
 
The event organizers, Professionals Today, (a local women’s service organization) have donated over $400,000 to Hospice of North Central Oklahoma from proceeds of this event. Hospice NCO offers medical and emotional support to terminally ill patients and their families. Their services are individualized to meet family and patient needs and range from social services to 24-hour emergency care. The non-profit support includes all of Kay, Grant, Noble, and Osage Counties.

Mark your calendar now, and plan to attend the Cherokee Strip Cook-off in Ponca City!! We will continue to update our website with additional information.
