About this event


Join us on October 14th and 15th for two days of World-class BBQ and Rock ‘n Roll in Coligny on Hilton Head Island. The party begins on Friday with the RNR Pitmaster Beach-Bum Triathalon, a Celebrity Chef dinner, and a private concert from Grammy award-winning Angie Aparo. Saturday we feature the main tasting, Cranford Hollow, and our 6x platinum and Grammy award-winning headliners, Blues Traveler. This event in its inaugural year has something for every level of BBQ connoisseur.


What side of the BBQ fence do you stand on?

  • Dry Rubbed vs. Sauced
  • Pork vs. Chicken vs. Beef
  • White Sauce vs. Red vs. Vinegar
  • Charcoal vs. Wood

Devour BBQ from world-renowned pitmasters, local chefs, and restaurants. Each chef will be presenting their own style of BBQ with enough varieties to satisfy everyone. Come with an empty stomach and leave with a full belly. If BBQ is your jam, VIP ticket holders will have an extra hour at the main tasting to talk with the Pitmasters and to discover their new favorite flavors!


We’re a people-first festival. No nickel and diming here. The BBQ is all-you-can-eat for every attendee. The beer and booze are free for VIP ticket holders. You’ll get some free swag and we won’t oversell tickets. Each ticket type is capped to ensure maximum enjoyment for our guests. Have personal interactions with all of our award-winning pitmasters and every attendee will have a great view of our awesome bands.
