Though summer is still a couple months away (officially speaking, anyway), BBQ season has officially kicked off with the launch of the L.A. BBQ Festival this weekend, May 9th and 10th. Taking place at Santa Monica Beach, this year's fest will once again prove to be heaven on earth for those who adore grilled meats of all kinds.
But L.A. isn't the only city hosting a BBQ fest this season. Some others to check out:
The Blue Ridge BBQ and Music Festival is taking place June 12th to 13th at Harmon Field in Tryon, North Carolina. In addition to a full-on BBQ competition – that you can apply to judge – there's also a gala kick-off dinner, motorcycle poker run, and a rubber duckie river race that can net the winner $1000.
June 13th to 20th marks the 19th annual Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival of Henderson, Kentucky. Go for the grilled meats, stay for one of the largest free music festivals in the nation.
The Bluegrass & BBQ Festival in Branson, Missouri starts May 13th and continues through May 31st, with nearly three week's worth of performances, BBQ buffets, and culinary craft school to learn how to make your own grilled creations.
The Georgia Barbecue Classic takes place June 5th and 6th, not only features a backyard cook-off and live music, but also helps raise money for the Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter.
The 19th annual Illinois State Barbecue Championship in Shannon, Illinois takes place July 10th and 11th. What can you expect to see? Over 50 teams from all over the country competing against one another to prove they grill the best.
If you are interested in attending the LA BBQ Fest this weekend, you can pre-purchase tickets on the site – which might be advisable, if you want to rub elbows with the likes of Butch Lupinetti from New Jersey's Smack Your Lips BBQ, Bryan Bracewell of Southside Market & BBQ in Texas, and Mike Mills from Vegas mainstay Memphis Championship Barbecue, just to name a few. http://www.eluxurybrandstore.com/
