Thank you for your interest in competing at BBQ Austin!
BBQ Austin is a fun event for the public to attend, as well as a great team building event for companies and groups who wish to participate. BBQ Austin has two (2) divisions, Champions and Open. Cities from all over Texas send their Champion BBQ Teams to compete in our Invitational Division for the title of “State of Texas BBQ Grand Champion” and the opportunity to represent the State of Texas in Washington, DC at the National Cook-Off. Additionally, all our teams compete for the title and purse of “BBQ Austin Grand Champion.”
All BBQ Teams, while competing in several contests, are encouraged to provide BBQ to the public for sampling. Many teams will also set up elaborate spaces to welcome folks to join in on the fun. Everyone is welcome and donation jars are provided in each team space for public donations to help raise funds for the Scholarship Program.
The Team Entry Deadline is January 31, 2018.Register Online Register By Mail
