Bobby Robinson Memorial Presale BBQ

Date: Aug 20, 2022
Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Sponsor: Moe’s Original BBQ and Yampa Valley Bank
This year’s BBQ will combine tradition with local flare. Moe’s Original BBQ will be catering this event and the traditional beef option, prepared the same way Chef Bobby Robinson Sr. did many years ago, will be served as well. Come out and enjoy this long standing tradition before the Jr. Livestock Sale.

BBQ and Entertainment: The barbecue is a long-stand- ing Routt County tradition, pre-dating the Fair by one year. It was first held in October 1913 when the Town of Hayden hosted a wild game feast to greet the arrival of the Iron Horse. The Railroad Day barbecue - elk and bear meat - immediately became the largest annual gath- ering in Northwest Colorado. Between 1949 and 1989, when Hayden contractor and Chef Bobby Robinson Sr. presided over the grills, he insisted the “secret” to the incredible sauce was slew water and whiskey. Since 4-H clubs began hosting the event, the barbecue has become a major 4-H fund raising event and an opportunity for youngsters to say thank you to purchasers at the Junior Livestock Sale.

BBQ prices: $10 (12 years and younger), $15 (13 years and older).
