Whole Hog Championship 2017

Whole Hog BBQ Championship

 

What goes great with bluegrass? North Carolina barbecue!

 

The North Carolina Pork Council and the farm families that make up our state’s pork industry are proud to host this year's Whole Hog Barbecue Championship in the heart of the Wide Open Bluegrass festival in downtown Raleigh.

 

The championship is the culmination of the annual Whole Hog Barbecue Series that includes more than 20 local barbecue competitions conducted as part of community events in Tar Heel cities and towns throughout the spring and fall.

 

At this year's championship, the cooked barbecue will be collected after judging, chopped and sold to the general public by the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle. Proceeds from the sale of the barbecue will go to support the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.
