This Competition Is Every BBQ Lover's Dream!
Teams serve up their most delicious BBQ but only one goes home with the top prize!

HOUSTON, Texas -- Texas is known for its BBQ, but this takes it to a whole new level!

More than 250 teams compete every year in the World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest in Houston, Texas.

Each team has to be invited, and they each bring along a special seasoning, secret ingredient or recipe that's been passed down for generations.

The barbeque pits are also over the top, and some take a year to build!

Teams battle it out for the best brisket, ribs and chicken, and more than 215,000 people line up every year to check out the dishes.
