ABOUT THE SHOWDOWN
The 10th Annual Beltway BBQ Showdown contest highlights the art of barbecuing in Prince George’s County and the Mid-Atlantic region. This BBQ Showdown is nationally sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) and draws teams from the Mid-Atlantic area. About 5000 people each year have celebrated and enjoyed the art, music, and history of BBQ in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
The Beltway BBQ Showdown offers a tremendous number of fun activities for the entire family. The competition’s home is at the Tucker Road Athletic Complex in Fort Washington, Maryland.
This Maryland BBQ festival offers live music, a Classic Car Show, food and craft vendors and an awesome children’s area full of fun things to do. Favorite events occur under the Tasting Tent such as; grilling demonstrations; the finger licking “Buck-A-Bone”- ribs cooked by the pro-grill teams for $1.00 each and the popular “People’s Choice” BBQ sauce contest” – 3 samples for $1.00.
In 2007, the Governor of Maryland issued a proclamation classifying The Beltway BBQ Showdown as a Maryland State BBQ Championship. This status allows the Grand Champion of the contest to attend the “American Royal” in Kansas City, Missouri.
