March 23 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The event, now in its 31st year, features the friendly competitive spirit of about 30 cooking teams of “Ribmeisters” as they try to out-do each other to create the most succulent, smoky, fall-off-the-bone barbecue to thrill the crowds, along with a wide array of traditional down home “fixins” and even gourmet accouterments. Ribmeister teams prepare for the event long in advance, and many of them fire up their grills and smokers in the dark of night to slow smoke their ribs, pulled pork, brisket, and other offerings long before the crowds arrive. For ticket information call 228-896-4276.
