Whole Hog Barbecue State Championship
September 29 @ 5:00 pm - September 30 @ 12:00 pm
Each Fall, the best whole hog barbecue chefs in North Carolina square off to become our state champion. The Whole Hog Barbecue Championship is the culmination of a qualifying series that includes more than 25 N.C. Pork Council-certified local barbecue competitions statewide.
Join us on South Street in downtown Raleigh for the annual Whole Hog Barbecue State Championship. Cooks will receive hogs around 7 p.m. and will be judged on the quality of their cooking skills at 8 a.m. the next morning.
All of the pork will be donated to Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, who will sell barbecue sandwiches beginning around 11 a.m. on Saturday morning for $5. So be sure to stop by for some championship barbecue!
