All ingredients must be incorporated into a single dish and submitted to the judges, who will award points based on originality, taste and presentation.

If the samples don't quite fill you up, you will have a variety of food trucks to choose from along with thirst quenching beverages from Old Yale Brewing.

BBQ is NOT Grilling
There is a very distinct difference between the grilling and BBQ. Southern style BBQ is a technique in which meat is cooked at low temperatures (about 225 F) for a long time over indirect heat. The heat source is charcoal and wood. No gas/propane is allowed. The Barn Burner BBQ competition consists of four main categories: Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Chicken and Ribs. Brisket is cooked for up to 16 hours. Ribs take approximately 6 hours and chicken take as long as 4 hours.

10:00 am: Event Opens with Chef Dez and Ryan McAllister takes the stage
