Have you ever been told that the barbecue you cook is the best around? If so, here's your chance to show off your cooking skills. In September of 2007 the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) of Cave Spring, Georgia, presented the first barbecue cook off competition called the "Cave Spring Pig-Out." This year, the 2016 Cave Spring Pig-Out will mark 10 successful years of extraordinary barbecue competition. We have grown from 8 competing teams in 2007, to 14 teams last year.

On Friday night of the competition, teams will bring their fresh Boston Butts, Ribs, Beef Brisket, sauce ingredients and cooking equipment to Rolater Park, and begin preparations at their site for all-night cooking. The competition meat will be judged by a professional panel on Saturday morning. Also on Saturday, tasting and voting for the Peoples Choice Award will be open to anyone who has purchased a "tasting ticket." We usually run out of tasting barbecue, so "first come, first served."

Trophies and cash prizes for 1st Place, 2nd Place, and 3rd Place in the professionally judged categories will be awarded. The top three teams acquiring the most votes in the Peoples Choice category, will receive trophies.

During the day on Saturday, teams will also be selling their barbecue to the public. You may get entry forms on this web site by clicking the appropriate download link. Forms are also available at Cave Spring City Hall during normal business hours.
