Show off your grill skills and sign up as a competitive team. Teams can elect to cook as much as little as they like, but only teams that turn in both chicken and pork are eligible for the title of "Grand Champion"!
Expo booths are for our supporting friends that just want a space to show off their company, tailgate a little, and maybe run some games or handout giveaways at the event. For example: Our friends at Rogers Group, Inc. bring out a dunking booth each year to help raise money for the House. Just contact the AGC Middle TN staff with any special plans so we can make sure to accommodate your needs.
There are various levels of sponsorship that include things like team registration, tickets, and signage at the event.
We have about 25 regular KCBS certified judges that participate with us each year. They are the real MVPs of the BBQ in Red Shoes, volunteering their time and knowledge to this event. However, we usually require around a total of 50 judges and table captains, so there is plenty of room for amateurs to join us for the event!
Pull tabs help the Ronald McDonald House pay for bills like keeping the lights on at the House. Collect your pull-tabs all year long and bring them to weigh-in by 2:30 PM at the BBQ in Red Shoes on September 23! The team/person/group with the most tabs takes home the title of Pull Tab Champion!
We are always seeking volunteers for the BBQ in Red Shoes event. We need help from 4AM to 4PM and everywhere in between. If you have a few hours to help make this event possible, register here! All volunteers will receive a General Admission ticket and t-shirt.
