Sure it’s hot, but it’s going to get even hotter at Sloss Furnaces this weekend as professional and amateur teams tend to their grills for honor and prizes. These guys and girls will not be fooling around as this event is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society. This is serious B-B and Q.
While the teams are sweatin’ the prize money, music fans can just sweat along with Alejandro Escovedo, Southern Culture on the Skids, Eliot Morris, Moses Mayfield, Jason Isbell and many more. There will also be cooking demostrations and a Kids Zone. Admission is $10 per day for adults or $15 for an advance, two-day pass. Kids ages 5-12 are $5 per day. Children under 5 are free. All net proceeds will support the expansion and restoration of the National Historic Landmark. Tickets are available at Birmingham-area Piggly Wiggly stores and Sloss, 20 32nd St. North.
