Acworth Community held the 1st Annual “Smoke on the Lake” BBQ Competition on Lake Acworth this weekend. Joined by the Rotary Club and Boy Scouts, the City of Acworth conducted this successful event and anticipates that it will now become part of the repertoire of the many community events held throughout the year.

More than 15 amateur teams competed and began arriving Friday afternoon for setup and prep for the main competition on Saturday. The weather was beautiful and the location on the shores of Lake Acworth provided a majestic backdrop to this first ever event.

The Acworth community came out to support this venture and to support the various causes associated with it. A few of the groups to benefit from the competition include the Acworth Horizon Field, Acworth Literacy Project, and MUST Ministries (for a full listing of charities/causes link here.

We are proud of this event and are already excited about next year’s!
