It was an unseasonably hot day for late September with temperatures that peaked at 92 degrees, but that didn’t stop the fourth annual Atlanta Kosher BBQ Competition & Festival from smoking up a storm at Brook Run Park in Dunwoody. 26 teams including the AJT’s Meat the Press fought for the title of best kosher ‘cuers in town.

For the second year in a row, the Hebrew Order of David-organized event raised thousands of dollars for several charities with tickets sales for samples of the team’s BBQ at $1 each.
