Smoke on the Mountain Barbecue Championship
Barbecue With Altitude!
The competition and festivities are a joint venture of the Twin County Regional Chamber of Commerce, the City of Galax, The Galax Smokehouse and the Memphis Barbecue Network.
Professional barbecue teams from all over the country will come to Galax to compete for the coveted handmade banjo trophy — made as always by local artisan Tom Barr — and a chance to earn a spot for their team in the 2014 The Memphis Barbecue Network World Championship of barbecue in Tennessee. Winners from Galax are both state champions and qualified for the world title.
Runners-up get fiddle trophies. The instruments reflect that city’s long heritage of traditional music.
