Porka Palooza 2016 BBQ Festival

Porkapalooza is essentially a BBQ competition but it’s so much more!! For two years now, Alberta Pork has organized this community event that offers all visitors a food festival that explores the art and culture of BBQ. It’s a form of cooking that’s as old as time itself, and enjoyed around the world by all cultures and nationalities.  To grill or to smoke, that is the question. All our BBQ teams have earned the right to be at Porkapalooza. Whether a seasoned veteran with many points and ribbons under their belt.

About Smokin Q

ALBERTA BBQ Competition

Lynnwood Ranch’s second annual KCBS sanctioned BBQ competition and BBQ Feast.

The KCBS BBQ Competition “Smokin Q” was started in 2015 after a friend, Bernie Kenny of BBQ on the Bow paid a visit to Gus & Wendy LeDuc. Bernie spoke of the need for more BBQ competitions in Alberta and that Lynnwood Ranch would be the perfect location. We set a date, May 3rd. 2015 and got to work. There wasn’t much time since there was only four months to make it happen. It came together with the help of many great people in the BBQ world: Bernie Kenny, the good folks at BBQ on the Bow, Mike Mulloy, Jason Hjelsvold, and the sponsors. We had 23 BBQ teams register, more than we had hoped for in the inaugural year.

To complete the event we hosted a BBQ Bash “Feast & Frolic”. With the help of the BBQ teams an amazing BBQ feast was provided to the almost 300 people attending.

So…..let’s do it again !  Dates this year – May 14 & 15, 2016
