Tens of thousands of visitors soak up LIVE music, activities and BBQ all weekend at the largest IBCA sanctioned championship cook-off with over 300 BBQ teams.
San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Bar-B-Que Cook-Off and Festival
We’re thrilled that there is so much excitement about the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Bar-B-Que Cook-off and Festival. Please make plans to attend the annual event that will take place in January at our new location near the rodeo grounds, S.A.L.E. on Salado Creek (very near the AT&T Center).
There will be SO many things to do and see at the event, including: LIVE music all day Friday and Saturday; heaps of vendors for shopping, washer pitching tournament; carnival rides and activities for kids, kids cook-off "Buckaroo Que", the Bad Boyz Rodeo, plus food trucks and plenty of adult beverages. We will also have one of the most entertaining awards ceremonies you’ve ever seen. Wear comfortable shoes and plan on having the best time of your life.
At SABBQ, there are number of teams that welcome the general public and encourage participation. Not all teams do that, however, so ask before you enter. There will be plenty of areas for the general public. At most cook-offs, the general public does not get to taste samples. BBQ teams typically cook just enough meat to turn in for the competition and are very focused on what they are doing. Please be respectful of the cookers as they intensely focus on the competition.
You can get tickets at the Rodeo/AT&T Ticket Office, online at www.SARodeo.com/BBQ, or on the day of the event at the gate. Children 12 and under are free. Military personnel with an ID are free (active and non-active). Tickets are only $15 on Friday and $15 on Saturday.
Please make plans to join us. Check back here and online at www.SARodeo.com/BBQ for details.
Registration for BBQ judges should start in October/November.
