1. Don’t… come for The World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest.
Even just hearing that it’s the largest barbecue competition in the world may make your mouth water, but don’t be fooled. It’s a serious competition and contestants are not allowed to sell samples of their food due to health codes. The different booths make up a raucous, alcohol-fueled party and it’s a lot of fun if you’re a local and know someone who’s competing. However, outsiders will have a hard time getting an “in” at one of the competitors’ booths and your only option for food will be overpriced barbecue from one of the catering trucks.
