The fifth annual Atlanta Kosher BBQ Festival drew more than 5,500 people to Dunwoody’s Liane Levetan Park at Brook Run on Oct. 22 to enjoy some of the finest kosher barbecue the south has to offer.

23 teams fired up the grills to see who could make the best brisket, ribs, chicken and beans at the Hebrew Order of David-organized event.

Shiksa Q & Stu took home top honors of grand champion with a first-place score in brisket and fourth in ribs. Blue Crew BBQ, the team from the Cobb police department took first in ribs and Servicemen’s Cup, a prize for the top team among fire and police teams. Oseh Shalow & Slow captured first place in beans and the BBQ’N Hebrew Hillbillies got first in chicken, team name and booth. Chick Oy Veh won the Marvin Rembo People’s Choice award.

Although the AJT’s Meat the Press team did not win first place in any category, AJT Publisher Michael Morris was awarded the Enoch Goodfriend Mensch of the Meat award.
