When? May 16th - 18th, 2014

Memphis in May's World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest is at Tom Lee Park in Memphis. Hundreds of teams compete for over $100,000+ in prizes and supreme bragging rights. Teams adorn their areas with elaborate decoration, trophies attesting to their boasting rights, and as one can imagine, clever and creative team names.

While grilling is the main theme, the contest wouldn't be complete without the Ms. Piggie Idol competition where the finest swine tests their vocal skills, and grown men dress in tutus and snouts and women kick their heels (hooves) up. There is also a t-shirt competition and even a best booth contest.
