August 26, 2012 | Heaven and Hell Takedown at the Armory

Back in June, we rounded up the best locally made BBQ and hot sauces for our “BBQ 101” feature. But we limited ourselves to commercially available concoctions. Who knows what hot stuff Boston’s home cooks are whipping up? You will, if you hit up Sunday’s Heaven and Hell Takedown at the Center for Arts at the Armory (191 Highland Avenue, Somerville, 617.718.2191). Starting at 2 p.m., local hot sauciers will face off, offering up 10-15 selections for judging and sampling. Worried that you’re not truly Teflon-tongued? Take heart; another 10-15 competitors will bring their best homemade ice cream to douse the flames. Grab tickets ($15) here.
