ALL MONEY goes directly to the team’s charity of choice
Who We Are
The Greeley Smokeoff is a non-profit charity event run solely by volunteers. We are supported by the generous donations of local individuals and businesses and BBQ team entry fees. We provide a quality BBQ competion as well as entertainment for the entire region. We award over $3000.00 in prize money, ribbons and plaques to the team winners. Our BBQ teams raise monies for local charities. The competition is open to professionals and amateurs. Contact us if you would like to be a competitive team. And remember to book your motel or RV site early! See our FB page for local resources.

A Few Charities You Have Helped
In Their Words
THE GREELEY FIRE DEPARTMENT
"The Smokeoff has meant so much to our department. It has afforded us the greater ability to connect with the community and without the donations received from the Smokeoff throughout the years and the generosity of our community, we would not have been able to assist Anderson County in building the fire station and we would not have some of the resources, equipment and supplies that we currently have available to us." ~Margie Bowman
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS - Host of the Larry Schaffer Memorial Softball Tournament
"We are proud to have the Greeley Smokeoff as our sister event in September. We look forward to continuing our efforts of supporting all of our local charities." ~George Miller
WINGS - www.wingsathome.org
"With the donations W.I.N.G.S. receives from the Greeley Smokeoff, we pay it forward by getting gas cards for people in need so that they can get to their medical appointments." ~Michelle Hermreck
