Event Details

This Fall 2014 Chicago will host 

40+ BBQ Pit Masters in a REAL BBQ Competition! Teams from across the USA - from back-yard BBQ Kings to Memphis In May Winners -  will fire up their smokers in a No Gas, No Electricity competition for the title of 

                 Grand Champion! 

Every guest can watch, learn and swap BBQ stories with the Pit Masters as they prepare their meats.


Attendees are STUFFED FULL OF BBQ GOODNESS - sampling and judging BBQ from another set of local and national BBQ restaurants, who are solely competing for the People's LOVE.  

All you can eat BBQ, washed down with some of Chicago's best Craft Beer (also included). 


Set to the beautiful backdrop of Chicago's Lakeshore and city scape at historical Soldier Field, this competition promises to give everyone who comes out an authentic experience of craft BBQ & Beer done right, right here in the Windy City! 

 Okay, okay...what's BBQ & Beer without a Pig Butchering? Watch as Rob Levitt from Butcher and Larder does a pig butchering demo and oh yeah, we added in some soul grooving live Blues music just to set the mood!
