This is the first SCA-sanctioned event to be held in Texarkana as far as we know. We are really excited to be partnering with Red River Beef Co, they are providing all of the steaks for the competition, and we think it’s going to be a really fun time.

With this competition being sanctioned by the Steak cookoff Association, it means a lot!  According to a press release,

The SCA holds these events all across the county. Each competitor is scored by a point system at every qualifying cookoff. When those points rack up to a certain number winners can eventually advance to national and international events and competitions.

Entering the Steaks category there is a fee of $160. If you want to enter the Chicken Wings category the fee is only $50. If you want to enter both categories the fee is $210. This event is free for the public to come and watch the competition.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
