Extreme Makeover BBQ Throwdown a big success!

August 5, 2011

The results are in — and everyone was a winner!

The “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” cast and crew were just a few of thousands of folks who came out to the Extreme Makeover BBQ Throwdown on Thursday, Aug. 4 in Ottawa, Kan. The event was a first for the popular television show as teams from the Kansas City Barbeque Society competed while also feeding the more than 3,500 people in attendance.

Those people who paid to have a delicious meal helped raise $35,000 to help Allen Hill and his family who are receiving a new house thanks to the popular ABC show. The Hill family’s new 4,100-square-foot house features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a pool and many other surprises the show is known for giving.

Yet even during the home-building event, there was competition among the teams in two categories. Judging was done by the cast and crew of the television show.

The show is scheduled to air sometime this fall.

Here are the results:
