Experience the excitement of international teams competing in Lexington’s acclaimed BBQ Capital Cook-off. The competition – with a prize purse of $16,100 – is fierce and fun for everyone. Our 2011 event brought 54 competing teams and over 75 judges from across the United States. The 2012 event brought 55 teams, over 25,000 people and taping of the season finale of the national television show, Pitmasters. The 2013 event brought 73 teams. Our 2014 brought competing 65 teams and 95 judges from across the United States.

Make plans to come Friday night at 6 pm to watch things get started, and stay over through Saturday to enjoy the final awards and all the entertainment.

While the teams serve up their best ribs, chicken, brisket and pork at this KCBS sanctioned event, you can sample all sorts of other treats from local and regional eateries.

Don’t forget you’ll be in the heart of Lexington, North Carolina and can visit our 15 barbecue restaurants, where the renowned heritage of slow-cooking pork shoulders over hickory is still alive and well.

Then, of course, there are the unique shops within walking distance that bring the best of the past into the present – you’ll love the charm of their individuality.

And just minutes away by car are the national treasures of Childress Vineyards, The Bob Timberlake Gallery & Museum and the RCR Racing Museum.

Hosted by Uptown Lexington, Inc.  For more information call 336-249-0383 or visit www.BBQCapitalCook-off.com.
