Event description

Description

We're inviting the world's best barbecue teams to compete for Sir Walter's coveted Golden Pig Medallion and the $500 Grand Prize.


If more than 12 teams sign up, this prize will increase to $1,000!

This year we're moving the event to R&D Brewing at 1323 Capital Blvd. This change will allow us to access the lot much earlier on Friday to set up, provide us lots of great beer, and make life a lot easier.

You cook the pork, the people decide. May the best team win!
