How is smoking pork in Yazoo City better than a piggy bank full of money?…
The payout is MUCH better!!
As you may already know by now, our event has gone through some major changes for 2015. We’ve trimmed away the big stage with multiple acts on Friday night in exchange for MORE PRIZE MONEY and even bigger perks for our valued sponsors. This is what you call a WIN/WIN!!
Another big change has come to one of our BBQ divisions. Our Backyard competition, which was previously divided into Backyard and First Responders, has been streamlined to become one Backyard Division. This means HUGE prize money for any team who scores in our top 3 of the Backyard competition. Where else can you send off a box of ribs for blind judging, and walk home with up to $1,000??
First place in Backyard will take home a One THOUSAND Dollar ($1,000) check AND one of our unique trophy “Hog Callers” hand made by Mississippi craftsman Paul Meek and his daughter T’Mara!
The Backyard division’s Second place winner receives a Five Hundred Dollar ($500) prize as well as one of our hand-made trophies, and Third place receives a trophy and a Two Hundred Dollar ($200) prize. We know of NO OTHER Backyard competition with that kind of prize money. This is the perfect opportunity for you and your friends or family to get started in competition barbecue, meet some Top 10 Memphis Barbecue Network teams, and learn what the competition barbecue world is all about. Get your team ready!
As always, our MBN Professional Competition is open to all teams, and has some of the biggest prize money in Mississippi! Check out the cash prizes and more at www.fireandfeast.org/trophies then get those applications in ASAP! Space IS LIMITED in all divisions, and once our spaces are full, we can not accept additional teams. You’ve got to be IN IT to WIN IT!!
