Diva Q Joins Celebrity Judging Panel for 2021 Competition

The Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship (DKBBQC) is excited to announce yet another new addition to our long list of great celebrity judges over the years as we welcome Danielle Bennett, aka Diva Q, to the celebrity judging table for the Seventh Annual Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship.

Bennett started in BBQ in 2006 at an event and was instantly drawn into the craft. Three days after that event, she bought her first ‘smoker thingy’ and started off on her journey.  With over 400 individual BBQ awards, as well as having taught over 20,000 folks the world over, Diva Q is a respected industry leader, influencer, and ambassador for all things grilling and BBQ.  She has even taught BBQ classes in Tel Aviv!

Her best-selling cookbook Diva Q’s BBQ was nominated as a World Gourmand Best Cookbook in the World.  As one of the most influential and recognizable faces in BBQ, Diva Q has been an expert master BBQ judge & competitor on the Food Network, Destination America’s BBQ Pitmasters, The Travel Channel, & many more.  Her own show BBQ Crawl aired for 3 seasons and has been shown in over 150 countries, while her recipes & expertise have been featured on the Today Show as well as in countless articles online and in print.

She lives by her trademark “Life is too short for bad BBQ®️‼️”

The Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship is presented to the community by the Men’s Club of Congregation Beth Torah and will be held on Sunday, October 24, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Admission and parking are free; food and beverages will be available for purchase.

The event is conducted under the supervision of Dallas Kosher and the world-renowned Kansas City Barbeque Society.  Teams from Texas and beyond will compete for cash and prizes in the Sunnyland Outdoor Living Shopping Center, at the intersection of Spring Valley and Coit roads, and benefits Congregation Beth Torah Men’s Club, Jewish Family Service Dallas (www.jfsdallas.org), and the American Red Cross.

You can help sponsor the food- and fun-filled 2021 event or sign up your BBQ team to compete. For details on team registration, or for additional information about The Seventh Annual Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship, visit us at: http://dallaskosherbbq.com/.
