Event-Goers Can Enjoy True Competition BBQ!
Myron

This BBQ contest brings some of the best professional BBQ teams from around the world! Why? Because of the great facilities, beautiful Florida weather, and you – great fans and crowds! The contest is sanctioned by the Florida BBQ Association and has been selected as one of the best BBQ events in Florida. Up for grabs is $20,000 and qualification for The Jack Daniels, Smithfield National Championship and  The American Royal World championships.

One of the things that make our BBQ Contest stand out is that generally the the public doesn’t get the opportunity to sample genuine competition BBQ, but not here! Many of the teams offer their finger lickin’ yummy BBQ for sale to the public. There are four contest categories: chicken, ribs, pork, and beef brisket. Up to 50 Championship BBQ teams are excepted to compete at this year’s contest including world champion teams like Jack’s Old South, Big Papa’s Kitchen, Swamp Boys BBQ, Hot Wachulas, Blitzkrieg BBQ, Pig-Chicka Cow-Cow and Sweet Smoke Q. This is the largest contest in Southwest Florida. See a list of all the teams competing this year.

More than just BBQ, there is an excellent concert featuring award-winning bluegrass entertainment, lots of fun exhibits and more. If you need a place to stay see the lodging page.
