Dozens Of Teams Will Compete At The Best Dam Barbecue Challenge In Nevada This Spring
There’s no denying that authentic southern-style BBQ is the absolute best. However, we
would argue that Nevada does a pretty great job of serving up this style of mouthwatering barbecue. In fact, one of the most exciting events of the spring season highlights this fact, and it’s simply a must for meat-eaters. The Best Dam Barbecue Challenge will be taking place once again this May, so set yourself a reminder and start planning your trip to this event right away.
Taking place every Memorial Day Weekend in Boulder City is the one and only Best Dam Barbecue Challenge. Now in its 16th year, we couldn't be more excited to see, and taste, what these talented barbecue teams cook up.
This year, the event will take place on Friday, May 22nd from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Saturday, May 23rd from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The event acts as the primary fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Boulder City, but it's completely free to the public to attend.
Since its first event in 2005, this barbecue challenge has brought out thousands of guests to Boulder City to taste some of the "best dam" barbecue around. The two-day, fun-filled event has become a treasured tradition among many, and you may want to make it a tradition for you and yours as well!
The event takes place in Nevada's Historic Bicentennial Park, just a 30-minute drive from Las Vegas and 15-minute drive from the Hoover Dam. Here you can experience the mouthwatering smells and sights of dozens of barbecue teams serving up some of the best smoked meats in the West.
Although there is plenty of entertainment and vendors to check out during the event, the barbecue challenge itself is the main highlight of the festival. Every year, up to 41 teams roll in their smokers and attempt to produce the best ribs, pork, brisket, and chicken imaginable. With $12,000 of cash prizes handed out every year, the competition is always fierce!
Another beloved feature of the event is the annual Best Dam Rib-Eating Contest. This year, two special guests will try to consume a half rack of ribs as fast as humanly possible, but only one will come out on top. Be sure to cheer them on and see for yourself who will be declared the next champion.
Additionally, musical entertainment, a family fun zone, and a vintage car show will also provide endless entertainment for visitors of all ages and walks of life. Be sure to experience one of the most coveted barbecue challenges in the country and mark your calendar for this tasty, BBQ-filled weekend.
