The Nelsonville Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to host the 18th Annual “Ohio Smoked Meat and Barbecue Festival,” sponsored by Rocky Brands, on October 17th and 18th, 2014, on the historic Nelsonville Public Square.

The “Ohio and Smoked Meat and Barbeque Festival” originated in 1996 as the first official state of Ohio championship for smoked meat and BBQ, proclaimed by the governor of Ohio. The competition is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society and is the final leg of the Ohio BBQ Triple Crown Series. The cook-off offers $10,000 in cash prizes with an opportunity for winners in various categories to represent the state at other KCBS contests. Entries are judged in chicken, ribs, pork, and brisket categories, and contestants must enter these four categories to be eligible for grand champion status.
