World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest
Memphis, Tennessee, USA

Description: Itís Super Bowl, Mardi Gras and one bodacious party all rolled into one. Donít miss it! Each May in Memphis, Tennessee, on the banks of the Mississippi River, a magical transformation occurs. Tom Lee Park fills with barbecue enthusiasts, people who have worked all year to hone their skills and practice their art. They gather to compete with fellow grill-masters for the title of World Champion. This three-day competition is now in its 28th year. It attracts the best of the best. Teams gather from around the world to show off their skills in producing the perfect ribs, shoulder and whole hog. Other competition cooking categories include sauce, "anything but" (pork); in which teams cook beef, seafood, poultry and "exotic" meats. Many teams have competed in the Memphis in May Sanctioned Contest Network, winning contests throughout the year to gain entry to the Championship. And if that isnít enough, thereís also world-class entertainment. Teams compete in skits in the outrageous Ms. Piggie competitions, where grown men and women strut their stuff in way-out costumes. Awards are given for best booth and for the most creative T-shirts, as well. The championship has attracted media from around the globe, and has been featured by Food Network, Southern Living, PBS and Food and Wine Magazine to name a few. Please join us May 12 to 14, 2005 as we celebrate all thatís great about pork barbecue. Itís one heck of a party!
