4th Annual Bands, Brews & BBQ coming

    The Town of Port Royal, which is considered the barbecue capital of the state, will host two days of barbecue paradise February 22nd and 23rd as approximately 30 cookers from all over the Southeast converge on the area. Friday night will feature wings, bands and brews and Saturday will be the first sanctioned event of the year for the South Carolina Barbecue Association as cookers compete for the best BBQ and ribs.

    Friday, February 22nd, from 6-9pm is The Wing Throw Down. Each cooker will prepare wings in the style they choose for public sampling and judging. The party will feature live music until 10 pm.

    Saturday, February 23rd, it’s the BBQ Competition Day from 12-4pm.  Festival goers sample barbecue and ribs from approximately 30 cooking teams from across the southeast, competing in a sanctioned SCBA cook-off.

    Tickets may be purchased for $20 each day (or $35 for both days) on-line at www.friendsofcarolinehospice.com.
    Tickets will be available at other locations at a later date. Call (843) 525-6257 for more information.
