While July 4 is a pretty big deal and backyard barbecues are alight all over the country, combining Louisiana’s love of cooking and BBQ equals some fires a couple weeks after July 4 that are pretty spectacular! The 6th Annual Bayou BBQ Bash is held July 14-15, rain or shine, under the U.S. 90 Bridge in downtown Morgan City.
A Champion Cooking and Music Event
The event is a Barbecue Competitor Alliance competition along with a Corporate Cooking Team throw down as well. Even the music is fierce, with local radio station KQKI kicking off the Country Music Showdown on Friday night.
How could the competition not be intense when there are bragging rights on the line and an exclusive $1,400, 10-karat gold ring, designed by Klutts Jewelers awaiting the Grand Champion.
Master Grillers Sign Up!
If you are considered King of the Coals or Master of the Grill, sign up and get in on the competition to earn your chops as 6th Annual BBQ Champ.
