The Smokin’ On the Suwannee BBQ Festival is a professional BBQ contest that is sanctioned by the Florida BBQ Association. Professional cookteams from all over the Southeast will compete for over $13,000 in cash
and prizes and a chance to qualify for the prestigious Jack Daniels WorldChampionship BBQ contest and the American Royal BBQ contest in Kansas City.

The festival is hosted at the Suwannee Coliseum & Fair Grounds in Live Oak, Florida.

The proceeds from this year’s contest will go to help support the Back to School Bash.
