MIM World Championship BBQ Contest

The sights and smells of World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest have been smoking out Memphis since 1978. The history of the competition is as rich as the sauce smeered over each piece of barbecue - and it only gets better every year. Whether you came in 2016 when we were "Smokin' In the Boys Room" or in 2005 when we had "Bountiful Butts," America's most prestigious barbecue cooking competition draws the best of the best vying for the highest title in barbecue. Here are the 2019 winners!
