(Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home media release):

Back by popular demand, Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home will host the second annual BBQ To Go Sale in September 2021. The Chieftains BBQ to Go Sale will once again feature smoked baby back pork ribs and whole hens for sale to raise money for this National Historic Landmark in our community.

The Chieftains BBQ to Go Sale will allow customers to pre-order delicious wood-smoked whole racks of baby back pork ribs as well as whole hens through the museum’s website at or via phone at (706) 291-9494 from September 1st-16th. Racks of ribs will sell for $35 each with whole hens selling for $25 each. Customers may choose one of two time slots for picking up their smoked meats when ordering online. Those who purchase bbq may drive by to pick up their orders at the museum in two shifts on Saturday, September 25th.

New fundraising initiatives are essential for non-profit organizations like Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home where visitation has been hit hard by the COVID-19 health crisis in 2020-2021. “We thought this curbside sale would not only provide a way to sustain the museum but provide our community with a delicious meal for their family and friends,” said Chieftains Museum Executive Director, Heather Shores, who added, “We appreciate all of the support the museum has gotten in the past two years and want to make sure we can sustain this important historical site in the years to come.”

The Chieftains BBQ to Go Sale is hosted by Friends of Chieftains Museum, Inc. with all proceeds going directly towards maintaining the museum.
