It could be so epic, except that the Battle of the Burger is about bringing people together for a good cause and good food. The fourth annual grilling cook-off features teams of cooks putting their best stackers forward to benefit the Oklahoma Sheriffs & Peace Officers Association. In addition to great burgers and pies, there will also be a Battle of the Brawn Tug-o-War between police and fire department personnel. Battle commences at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 16, with the opening ceremony, soon followed by tug-of-war match. Grilling begins at 11 a.m. followed by judging, the pie contest and awards. The Battle of the Burger takes place at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds, 614 E. Robinson St., in Norman. For more, visit online.
