Windy City BBQ Classic
Thirty teams will face off and determine who makes the best 'cue in the city. Categories include best ribs, best brisket, best pork shoulder and best chicken. The overall Grand Champion automatically qualifies to compete in the Jack Daniel's World Championship in Tennessee later this year. Participating restaurants include Barn & Company, Lillie's Q, Rubs Backcountry Smokehouse, Smoque, Sweet Baby Ray's and Uncle Bub's. Attendees can also enjoy live music and a selection of craft beers and premium cocktails. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Operation BBQ Relief, a relief organization to assist tornado-ravaged Joplin, Missouri.
