When: Sept. 16-17 2011
The two-day Smokin’ Aces Festival and BBQ Championship returns. The main event is the Memphis Barbecue Network-sanctioned contest during which teams vie for $20,000 in prize money and a chance to compete at Memphis in May.
And for those who cannot live on ’cue alone, there’s the Double Down Beer-Rita Fest, which includes 101 beers for sampling (tickets $35); the American Cornhole Organization Texas Hole’em Cornhole Classic; a car show; and live music.
A portion of the proceeds go to Porter-Leath. For more info go to smokinacesbbqchampionship.com.
