Have you ever been told that your barbecue is the best around? If so, here's your chance to show off your cooking skills. In September of 2007, the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) of Cave Spring, Georgia, presented the first barbecue cook-off competition called the "Cave Spring Pig-Out."

On Friday night of the competition, teams will bring their fresh Boston butts, ribs, beef brisket, sauce ingredients, and cooking equipment to Rolater Park and begin preparations at their site for all-night cooking. The competition meat will be judged by a professional panel on Saturday morning. Also, on Saturday, tasting and voting for the Peoples Choice Award will also be given.  We usually run out of tasting barbecue, so "first come, first served."

Trophies and cash prizes for 1st Place ($300), 2nd Place ($200), and 3rd Place ($100) in the professionally judged categories will be awarded. A People's Choice Award will also be given.
