Saturday boasts some of the best BBQ around!  Teams from all over the Southeast will compete in professional and amateur divisions to see who will take home the title.  For a small fee, you can taste your way through some of the best BBQ in the Southeast!  The event will run from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
