          Contestant entry for two is $40.  Traditional judging by professionals chosen by “Smoke at The Rock” officials will determine the Top 3 in the pork and chicken categories with the three judged winners awarded trophies and free entry to defend their titles at the 2019 cookoff.
There also will be a People’s Choice category in which the general public will determine a separate Top 5 to whom trophies also will be awarded.
          Gates open at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18, with barbecue sampling from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.  Adult admission is just $8 with children under 12 free and free parking in Rockingham’s main lot.  Each admission will include two People’s Choice voting tickets, one for pork and one for chicken.
