Just as the rodeo competitors hone their riding skills and shine their buckles, approximately 300 cooking teams are polishing their culinary tools and preparing to heat up their own winning run at glory.

The World's Championship BBQ Contest is three days of cooking, competition, eating and dancing.

Along with great music we will have fantastic food. We will be serving shrimp and crab gumbo, boudin and blackened chicken on Thursday, and a traditional BBQ spread Friday and Saturday nights.
