The World Food Championship Hosts the Ultimate BBQ Competition—Do Not Miss It!

Who’s got the best barbecue in the United States? The Carolinas? Tennessee? Kansas City? St. Louis? Or Texas? It’s been a long-debated topic but trust us—we’re about to settle it once and for all during the Bourb’N’Que event on Friday, October 18th.

This event is part of the World Food Championship (WFC), the highest stakes food competition in the world, having awarded more than $2 million in cash and prizes over the past seven years. This multi-day, live-event culinary competition showcases some of the world's best cooking masters competing for food, fame, and fortune in ten categories: Bacon, Barbecue, Burger, Chef, Chili, Dessert, Recipe, Sandwich, Seafood, and Steak.

For the past three years, Food Champs have had to focus on their "A" game to cash in on Food Sport's biggest prize in Alabama. But in 2019, they’re going to have to think about their “B” game. As in their “BIG” game, because Food Sport is moving to Texas in a BIG way. With the help of VisitDallas, the Dallas Sports Commission and many new major sponsors, the competition will continue to expand in the upcoming years—starting with this event, among many.

The World Food Championships’ Bourb’N’Que event will feature 10 of the leading pitmasters in America. They'll team up to serve ribs from all four corners of BBQ Nation. And, you get to sample them all, as well as cast your vote for the Best Barbecue! With bourbon pairings from Title No. 21 Bourbon, TX Bourbon, Crooked Fox Bourbon, and more, this is one Block Party that you need to block off some time for!

So, don't wait. Get your tickets while you can, because the price is sure to increase as time goes on! We cannot wait to see you there.
