Held this Friday and Saturday at the Ray C. Jenkins Multipurpose Arena in Munny Sokol Park, the event is coordinated by the Young Professionals of Tuscaloosa and aids in the fight against hunger with Kansas City Barbeque Society’s Meals Mission. This is a national effort to distribute over 100,000 meals to those in need within the next year by partnering with Caring Days Adult Day Care and Temporary Emergency Services to give out donated cooked and canned goods.

The Bama Brew & Que currently has 35 teams participating in the event from Alabama and Mississippi, 25 of which are professional while 10 are coming from their backyards.

“We’ve got 47 [Kansas City BBQ Society] certified judges coming from Alabama, Mississippi, Florida and Tennessee,” said Hannah Lansdon, co-director of the Young Professionals of Tuscaloosa.

Admission to the event is free, but patrons are asked to bring canned goods to donate. Teams can set up at 7 a.m. Friday, and the event will be open to the public starting at 10 a.m. Saturday. Judging will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, and the awards ceremony will begin at 4 p.m.
