1st Annual 'Getting Saucy' BBQ Sauce Competition

Saturday, September 24, 2022  

11am - 6pm

This fun event will feature Live 5 News Evening Anchor, Michal Higdon, live entertainment by Lauren HallBen Fagan & The Holy City Hooligans, Lafaye, Chris Boone, music by DJ Natty Heavy, a corn hole competition, activities for all event-goers, and of course, the BBQ sauce! Competitors will be provided with the pork and prohibited from additionally seasoning the pork itself. This will ensure that all competitors start with the same pork product and leave the sauce to shine through. The determining factor in the tasting competition will only be the sauce.


Dozens of competitive sauce makers from around our state will go head to head, or "sauce to sauce," in the mild red, hot red, mustard, vinegar, and specialty categories. Winners in each category will be awarded, with one winner declared the official South Carolina BBQ Sauce Grand Champion. "Getting Saucy" guest judges include  Black Food Fridays, KJ Kearney, Bill West from 96.9 The Wolf, and others.
