Pennwood Home and Hearth

BBQ Fest is coming up again. We have decided to bring the Smokin’ In The Gap BBQ Cook-off (Click for detail and to sign-up) back this year. The competition is going to be a people’s choice only this year so you’ll need to stop by the Pleasant Gap Fire Company’s table to get your ballots to vote. While you are at the table we ask that you consider making a small donation to the fire company, a donation is not required however. 

If you or someone you know are interested in competing in the competition please click here for more information.

We will have special sale prices on both hearth and outdoor products. If you are considering a new Bar-B-Que or outdoor kitchen, this is a must attend event. We will have great pricing on grills and grilling supplies. 

We will have grilling demonstrations throughout the day. Stop by to learn some new techniques and sample some delicious food. We will have lots of BBQ sauces and seasonings available to sample as well. Otto’s Pub & Brewery will be onsite with their beer trailer to help raise money for the PGFD.

Pennwood will have limited seating so we recommend that you bring your own chairs.
