Jack Daniel’s World Championship Barbecue Contest

If you are a bbq contest enthusiast and you've never been to "The Jack", you should make plans to attend.  Why not this year?  The autumn colors are beautiful in Tennessee during late October.

PRESS RELEASE from Jack Daniel's Barbecue Media

WHAT: More than eighty championship barbecue teams from across the United States and from around the world will compete for the Grand Champion title at the 22nd Annual Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue on Friday, October 22 and Saturday, October 23.

“The Jack,” considered the most prestigious barbecue competition in the world, will bring together the best of the best to compete for the top prize – to be named Jack Daniels’ Grand Champion. Winners will not only be awarded ultimate bragging rights, but awarded with more than $30,000 in cash and prizes.

WHEN: October 22- 23, 2010

9:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.

WHERE: Lynchburg (pop. 361), Tenn.

Every drop of the world’s best-selling whiskey is made in Lynchburg, ironically a dry county. However, for one weekend out of the year the city’s familiar sour mash scent is replaced with the smell of pit smoke, as 30,000 visitors unite for the ultimate barbecue competition.

WHO: More than eighty U.S. and international championship teams and more than 25,000 barbecue fans.

Domestic teams who have competed and won a state championship with 25 teams or a competition of 50 teams or earlier in the barbecue season earned a chance to compete in eight categories: Pork Ribs, Pork Shoulder/Butts, Beef Brisket, Chicken, Dessert, Cook’s Choice and Jack Daniel’s Sauce. The 2009 Jack Daniel’s world grand champion and the current season’s Memphis in May, American Royal Open and Houston World’s Championship Bar-B-Que received automatic invitations.

We were almost going to go this year but opted for the Eggtoberfest the weekend before instead.
