ODESSA, TX (KWES) - The Odessa Chamber of Commerce will host the 8th annual Basin BBQ Blowout on Thursday, October 4 from 5 - 8 p.m. at the Ector County Coliseum fairgrounds.

"We enjoy the BBQ Blowout because it is a great opportunity to interact with the community and network with other business owners at the same time," said Kirk Strahan, past participant in the annual BBQ event. "It's a very great environment which helps people relax. We are all very busy right now and the BBQ Blowout is the perfect way to take a break and still get a little work done."

The event is a family-friendly occasion with a variety of BBQ taste samples available to public, while supplies last. More than 1,000 attendees are expected at this event and the chamber is still in need of additional cook teams.

"All meat for the cooking teams is provided by Sysco and Market Street/Albertsons," said Van Amburgh. "We are thankful for all our sponsors and the businesses that allow their employees the chance to come out and participate in this annual event."

This year's entertainment will include a live performance from Los Crazy Guys.

Ticketing will be handled by the Odessa Jackalopes and can be purchased online at or at the gate.
