MAHOPAC, N.Y.— Nothing says “summer” like the smell of a burger sizzling on the grill. Many folks couldn’t resist following their noses to local retailer Best in Backyards in Mahopac last Saturday, June 18, as contestants in the 2016 New York Bull Burger Battle were grilling up their best burger recipes in hopes of qualifying for a spot in the World Food Championships later this year.
“It’s nice to have a relaxing day to grill up some burgers and have some fun,” said Rolf Zimmermann, vice president of sales for Best in Backyards.
The event was open to the public, and burger fans had a blast watching the contestants grill their original recipes. There was plenty of food to sample, raffles, and fun for the kids as well, including face painting.
Mahopac resident and returning competitor, Christopher Holihan, grilled up his crab burger recipe after winning second place in 2015. Holihan said he has enjoyed barbecuing at home for years and when the New York Bull Burger Battle came to town, he knew it would be a fun and rewarding opportunity.
