I received an e-mail from Angie Jones today announcing the Festival of Discovery BBQ Cook-off. The Greenwood KCBS bbq cook-off is a South Carolina State Championship event and a KCBS Qualifier.
The winner receives an invitation to participate in the American Royal contest and will be entered into a drawing for a chance to compete in the World Championship in Lynchburg, Tennessee.
This event is sanctioned by KCBS and features teams from Greenwood County, as well as throughout the United States. Festival goers will be invited to join in the fun during the Taster's Choice competition. This year, the festival will be giving away $8,000 in cash prizes!
The festivities will include a partnership with Big Show Foods that features a John Boy and Billy Grillin' Sauce Backyard Grillin' Competition.
I wish South Carolina was a lot closer to Michigan. This one would be on my personal list of "must attend" events.
