The BBQ Cook Off is a Champions Barbecue Alliance Sanctioned Cook Off and features BBQ Teams from all over Texas. BBQ Austin offers two competing divisions; Invitational Champions Division and an Open Division. Teams will compete in three sanctioned categories; Chicken, Ribs and Brisket. All contests are run by a number ranking system designated by the Judges at each contest. Every contest is done by “blind tasting”. Teams are also competing in other contests that they have the chance to buy into including; beans, bloody mary, BBQ Sauce and David Kitchen’s jackpot. You will also see tip jars in each team space. The teams are providing samples for your donations! Every dollar donated supports the mission of Rodeo Austin.
