Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ Cook-Off’s key ingredients were formulated by a group of Glen Ellyn residents (a.k.a. Bar-B-Crew) consisting of one part friendly trash-talk about who made the best ribs and other grilled dishes, mixed in with a few handfuls of ideas as how best to generate foot traffic into Glen Ellyn's charming and historic downtown commercial district, along with a couple of pounds of fun and community spirit. The resulting recipe has quickly gained momentum within Glen Ellyn and beyond.
