If you're looking for a weekend that offers finger-licking cuisine and hot blues licks alike, you'll go whole hog for the Windy City BBQ Classic. Held on Saturday, October 11 by the lakefront in beautiful downtown Chicago, this weekend-long barbecue festival offers something for everyone.

Watch professional teams from across the country compete for the title of best barbecue and thousands of dollars in cash prizes in a State Championship BBQ Event. You'll be able to interact with the pit masters, ask questions, and get a first-hand glimpse into how to create amazing barbecue. Then, take in a pig-butchering demo by Rob Levitt of Butcher & Larder and sample pork, brisket, chicken, and ribs from 30 more pit masters -- and cast your vote for the one that should be crowned "People's Choice" grand champion. Plus, there will be Lagunitas Brewery craft beers, Tito's Vodka cocktails, Red Streak Cider, Ole' Smokey Moonshine, and Boxed Water to wash it all down.
