Get Your Pig On

pigThank you for visiting our website where you can find information about our upcoming barbecue competitions and find out what we’ve experienced while delving into this fascinating and delicious sport! Whether competitors come from California, Colorado, North Carolina, Memphis, Texas, Kansas City, or our own South Carolina, competition barbecue seems to be one of the fastest growing sports in the country.

Maybe competition barbecue is about the pride that comes with taking home prize money and trophies, or the euphoria of personal recognition and accomplishment, or the adrenaline rush from the intense rivalry between competing teams. Perhaps barbecuing is more about the camaraderie and fellowship that drives competitors’ to pack up and travel from event to event, weekend after weekend. Whatever their reasons, competitors continue to travel all over the country demonstrating their ability to entice and delight us with their barbecued meats and culinary adventures.

Competitions draw teams from near and far and they often encounter unexpected complications like damaged equipment and unpredictable weather, which further complicates the already tough tasks of producing the best BBQ meats and getting them to the judging tent on time. Despite long hours devoted to tending fireboxes, trimming, seasoning, smoking, boxing, and presenting their entries teams still manage to find time to share some of their experiences, expertise, and enthusiasm with spectators.

As barbecue spectators and enthusiasts walk competition grounds, the smells of barbecue fill the air and the adventure begins. The talent, creativity, and passion of competitors’ lead to mouth-watering sights, aromas, and flavors which reel you in and hook you for life! Come out and meet some of the fine people that travel the competitive barbecue circuit at an upcoming Get Your Pig On Barbecue Competition and find out for yourself what competitive barbecuing is all about. Think PIG, think BBQ, think FAMILY, think FUN, and come have a squealin’ good time with us!
