Event-Goers Can Enjoy True Competition BBQ!
Our BBQ contest brings some of the best Professional BBQ Teams from around the world! Why? Because we have great facilities, beautiful Florida weather and you - great fans & crowds! Our contest is sanctioned by the Florida BBQ Association and we were honored to be selected as one of the best BBQ events in Florida. There will be $20,000 up for grabs, an invitation to the World Food Championships and Sonny's Smokin' Showdown. It is also a qualifier for The Jack Daniels & The American Royal World championships.
Taste the Best!
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, Sweet Smoke Q, Awesome Que, Whiskey Bent, and Git–R-Smoked. This is the largest contest in Southwest Florida. See a list of all the teams competing this year.
