2012 U.S. Barbecue Competition Calendar

When it comes to competitive barbecue festivals and contests, there are more certifying organizations than those that ruled heavyweight boxing in the ’80s and pro wresting in the ’90s — combined.

Like the Avignon popes, the world of barbecue has experienced its share of schisms and disagreements, but most of these divisions have been formed to feature a particular regional style of cooking or specific meats being smoked over a wood fire.

The National Capital Barbecue Battle is an annual competition between top BBQ restaurants from the Washington, DC area and around the country. If you love barbecue you’ll love the food samples, cooking demonstrations, interactive displays and children’s activities at this sizzling summer festival. The nation’s best barbecue teams cook-off for over $40,000 in cash and prizes in two major contests.
