BBQ Festivals, Cook-offs & Contests

Ok, this is the part of Everfest where you have to listen to us tell you how awesome Texas BBQ is. You see, we are in Austin, TX, and the barbecue here is second to none. Now, with that in mind, we have curated for you a calendar of all the BBQ festivals, cook-offs and contests out there, and we do recommend you try to hit them all. BBQ is a science, and there are different approaches, such that Kansas City BBQ and Texas BBQ are really like different disciplines, and it's hardly fair to compare them (though you know our preference). I can't imagine you've made it this far without running out of your house looking for delicious smoked meats, but if you make it to some of these feasts, we hope to see you there!
