A bit about BBQ: BBQ is NOT grilling!!

There is a very distinct difference between the two. Just ask anyone that knows BBQ and they will tell you all about it !!

Southern style BBQ is a technique in which meat is cooked at low temperatures (about 225 F) for a long time over indirect heat. The heat source is charcoal and wood. No gas/propane is allowed. The Barn Burner BBQ competition consists of 4 main categories: Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Chicken and Ribs. Brisket is cooked for 12 – 16 hours. Ribs take aprox. 6 hours & chicken aprox. 4 hours.
