When Barbecue Gets Serious

01 Oct 2014

Just knowing you’re the best pit master isn’t always enough -- you got to prove your skill and enjoy the glory that comes with being named number one. That is just one of the perks of BBQ cook-offs that happen around the country.  Here is a rundown on the most popular options to attend for the month of October.



World Series OF Barbecue, Kansas City, Oct. 3rd, 2014

In October of every year, the Kansas City American Royal Society holds the biggest barbecue contest the country has ever seen. The American Royal World Series is a major event that involves people from around the world. It helps that there is a cash prize of $50,000 for the person who proves to be the best cook in the world.




Jack Daniel’s Barbecue World Championship, Lynchburg, TN  Oct. 26th, 2014

Considered the Super Bowl of barbecue competitions, the Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue occurs every October, and features some of the finest BBQ chefs across the globe.

The competition, lovingly referred to as “The Jack”, features a who’s who in the BBQ competition world. To qualify, these teams must win a state championship with at least 25 teams or a competition of 50 teams, or win one of the premiere barbecue competitions that qualify a team for an automatic berth. The contests are not just about cooking either, with plenty of events for the family, award ceremonies and fireworks, you’ll definitely stay busy (and full).

If you love the great taste of barbecue, but not interested in competition cooking, Dickey’s Barbecue has you covered.  Our Family Pack feeds a family of 4 to 6 and offers a choice of 2 meats, 3 medium sides, 6 rolls & barbecue sauce. Have bigger group? Not a problem. Our XL Family Pack feeds between 6 and 8 with a choice of 3 meats, 4 medium sides, 8 rolls & barbecue sauce. All of this and more is a just a click away

And the best part, you know it’s a winner!
