    I am originally from the Midwest, so I was raised to believe that the Kansas City Royal is the most prestigious contest. With the growth of interest in recent years in competitive barbecue, I wonder if this is still true.

    I actually don't know of any down here in Florida but that's probably because I haven't looked much into it. I would love to know if anyone on here knows of any in South Florida - Perhaps I can sign my husband up - he would love to try one of these!

    I'm surprised it's not in Texas or North Carolina, but the barbecue there is so good at almost any place, and people there know how to cook barbecue in their own back yards better than many competition barbecues I've been to. I'm getting hungry right now for pork ribs.

    I think the Jack Daniels Invitational in Lynchburg TN. is the most widely known and prestigious in the nation. If you're serious about your BBQ, and I mean serious, that's where you want to go.

    There are quite a few excellent ones, but I do agree that the Jack Daniel's one is top ranked.
