The Smokin’ on the White BBQ Championship is set to kick off on September 7 and 8 at Riverside Park in conjunction with the 75th White River Water Carnival.
This year the contest will be dual-sanctioned with the Memphis BBQ Network and the Kansas City BBQ Society. Professional teams from across the country will converge on Batesville for their chance at over $12,000 in prize money.
The public is invited to tour the pit area located next to the VFW building on Saturday, Sept. 8. Beginning at 2 p.m., patrons may donate $10 to the Independence County Chapter of Ducks Unlimited, in exchange for a sample plate from many of the competitors.
