The Barbecue is a Chamber tradition, held on the second Thursday in September on and around the Chamber grounds. The event draws over 6,000 attendees and 110 businesses represented by 100 cooking teams. Cooking teams compete for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place honors for the best ribs, brisket and “other” meats in professional, corporate or amateur divisions. 100 volunteer judges have the chore of choosing the winners from some of the most mouthwatering food found anywhere. The Showmanship competition often sees cooking teams use extravagant themes for their costumes and booth decoration.
