Get Your Pig On State BBQ Cookoff
Whether competitors come from California, Colorado, North Carolina, Memphis, Texas, Kansas City or our own Arizona, competition barbecue seems to be one of the fastest growing sports in the country. Maybe competition barbecue is about the pride that comes with taking home prize money and trophies, or the euphoria of personal recognition and accomplishment, or the adrenaline rush from the intense rivalry between competing teams. Perhaps barbecuing is more about the camaraderie and fellowship that drives a competitor to pack up and travel from event to event, weekend after weekend.

As barbecue spectators and enthusiasts walk the grounds, the smells of barbecue fill the air and the adventure begins. The talent, creativity, and passion of the competitors’ leads to mouth-watering sights, aromas, and tastes that reel you in and hook you, for life! Come out and mingle with barbecue teams in the beautiful desert of Arizona at the upcoming inaugural “Get Your Pig On” Barbecue Competition and find out for yourself what competitive barbecuing is all about. Think PIG, think BBQ, think FAMILY, think FUN, and come have a squealin’ good time with us!

December 3rd and 4th, 2010 ~ Scottsdale | Fountain Hills, AZ

KCBS Sanctioned

Get Your Pig On Barbecue Competition



"Carnivores rejoice! Secure your plastic bibs and head to the Get Your Pig on Barbecue Event in Fountain Hills, Arizona, about 30 miles northeast of Phoenix. The inaugural two-day barbecue festival and celebration is sanctioned by Kansas City Barbecue Society, the world’s largest organization of barbecue and grilling enthusiasts. And it’s all overseen by Arlie Bragg, America’s premier barbecue organizer, having run more cook-offs than any other person in America. (In other words, this isn’t just another clique of yahoos turning a spit over a fire). Bragg, well, brags, “The worst barbecue you eat [at this competition] will still be the best thing you ever had!” It’s Iron Chef in 30-gallon cowboy hats, slathered in sauce, with the “secret ingredient” provided by the National Pork Board, as barbecue teams from several states descend on the Fort McDowell Rodeo Fairgrounds to compete for more than $12,000 in cash, prizes, and bragging rights. All in all, it’s good eats, folks. If that doesn’t get you drooling, the local Jeep dealership will have dozens of brand-new vehicles on hand for guests to test drive on one-and-a-half miles of off-road track. Once you’ve pounded some pig and rolled a Jeep, be sure to visit the Beer Garden and let us know if brewskis grow on trees or in the dirt. To flesh out the Charlotte’s Web vibe, inflatable jumpers, pony rides, and a petting zoo will be available for the littles. Stop by the Basha’s Sampling Pavilion, where you can collect samples of many different items carried in its stores. Plus, meet local merchants and enjoy their offerings of jewelry, clothing, candles, home furnishings, and more. If you’re still on the fence, figure this: A portion of the proceeds goes to 100 Club of Arizona, a non-profit benefitting the families of public safety officers and firefighters when tragedy strikes."
