Texas BBQ Cook-Off Championship

Attention all BBQ enthusiasts! Join us for the State Championship Texas ShootOut BBQ Cook-Off at the Wild, Wild West Fest. Experience the mouthwatering aroma of sizzling meat as some of the most talented pit masters in the West compete for the title of Grand Champion and their share of over $15,000 in cash and prizes.

If you think you have what it takes, we invite you to showcase your skills and compete for the Grand Champion title. The Texas ShootOut is a sanctioned cook-off. Grand Champions are automatically eligible to compete at the Jack Daniel World Championship Invitational. And this is a double-header event, so you'll earn double BBQ points!

On Sunday, April 21, 2024, join us for the dessert cook-off, where all desserts must be made on-site. There will be a 100% payout for the winner. Volunteer judges are always needed; it's a hard job, but someone has to do it!
