Chattanooga, Tenn. Warming Up for the BIG PIG Festival

On Saturday May 11th, Chattanooga, Tennessee will be aglow with the fires of competition as the 4th Annual BIG PIG Festival takes center stage at the First Horizon Pavilion. The city will be perfumed with the mouth-watering aroma of succulent pork sizzling away on grills, not in any ordinary backyard-fun way, but in high-stakes competition. The Festival, known for its celebration of BBQ culture, is also a significant event aimed at supporting the Construction Career Center in the city.

Brewing Up The BBQ Battle

According to Forrest Catron, a prominent participant of the event, approximately 19 teams will compete to be crowned Chattanooga’s BBQ Champion, turning the heart of the city into a battlefield of flavors, grills and BBQ mastery. Each team will bring its unique flair and secret recipes to the table, making the competition rife with tantalizing aromas, sizzle and smoke.

BBQ, Fun, and Community

However, don’t be fooled into thinking that the BIG PIG Festival only promises a meat-fest. In keeping with its tradition of being a wholesome community event, the Festival is all set to include a touch-a-truck exhibit for kids to enjoy and learn about the different vehicles used in construction. Additionally, a beer garden and an assortment of games along with live music to set the festive mood are also on the agenda, promising a delightful time for BBQ enthusiasts and families alike.

The Prize Crown Awaiting Its Worthy Victor

While the thrill of competition, the love of BBQ and a charitable cause bring all 19 teams together, only one team will experience the glory of being crowned the BBQ Champion. This team, besides winning the competition, will also have the honor of being the purveyors of the winning BBQ tradition that cuts across the Southern heartland of America and speaks to the soul of its people.

Savoring and Cheering On

With the BBQ pits smoking, the crowd cheering and the music playing, the BIG PIG Festival is not just about crowning the BBQ Champion. It is a heartwarming tribute to Southern heritage and culture, a symbol of Chattanooga’s community spirit, and the perfect opportunity for locals and visitors to savor the best BBQ that the city’s expert grill masters have to offer.
