It’s super fun to barbecue at home, but summer is all about getting out and doing things. This year, why not visit a barbecue festival or two? You can enjoy fierce competition, delicious barbecue, and entertainment, and maybe even bring home some fresh ideas for the next time you barbecue at home! Finding a great barbecue festival is as easy as visiting these helpful websites.
- Killer Hogs not only lists the locations of barbecue festivals and competitions, but also offers practical advice to help you barbecue at home. On this site, we found information ranging from a link to great Memphis, TN barbecue to solid advice on choosing a grill.
- Delish.com offers some great suggestions for barbecue festivals as well. It’s on Delish that we found the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest. Traditionally held the weekend before the opening of the Livestock Show and Rodeo, this three-day long event includes not only a cooking competition, but also live music and dancing.
- A quick visit to BBQ-festivals.com yielded a long list of festivals to check out. Of particular interest to us was Lexington, NC’s 31st Annual Barbecue Festival, held in a town that boasts of being the barbecue capital of the world.
- If your time in the Carolinas will be spent a little further south, check out South Carolina’s barbecue scene at the South Carolina Barbecue Association’s website. Throughout the year, there are barbecue festivals in South Carolina, and they happen more than once a month during the summer.
- The Kansas City Barbecue Society website is a must for anyone who likes that style of barbecue. KCBS will direct you to Kansas City barbecue events, which are held all over the country.
