Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest

Every year, hundreds of teams compete for over $111,000 in prizes and supreme bragging rights. Teams adorn their areas with elaborate decoration, trophies attesting to their boasting rights, and as one can imagine, clever and creative team names. While grilling is the main theme, the contest wouldn't be complete without the "Ms. Piggie Idol" competition where the finest swine tests their vocal skills, and grown men dress in tutus and snouts and women kick their heels (hooves) up. There is also a t-shirt competition as well as a best booth contest.

The 2017 World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest will take place May 17-20, 2017.
