Think your hot sauce is hot stuff?  Enter it in Rocklands Barbecue’s 5th annual Hot Sauce Contest & Pig Roast. To participate, simply drop off your best batch of heat at Rocklands by Sept. 12. Or, if tasting is more your scene, a $25 ticket ($30 at the door) will get you a judge’s pass to taste and vote on all of the entries, plus unlimited barbecue and craft beer. All profits from the event benefit the DC Firefighters Burn Foundation, which is dedicated to assisting in the recovery and rehabilitation of injured firefighters and burn patients in the DC metro area.
