What is Smokin' on the Beaver?

We kick-off our event Friday night with team check-in and music throughout the evening. The public is welcome to come enjoy the atmosphere and meet the teams.


Saturday is a day full of food, drinks and fun! Live music plays all day and sets the tone for the afternoon. Feel free to explore the festival grounds and mingle with the competitors. Teams are encouraged to share their specialties with guests throughout the day. 


Make sure you bring the kids down for some excitement in our dedicated Kids' Fun Zone featuring a bounce house and carnival games! Commemorate this special day with unique Smokin' on the Beaver t-shirts, hoodies and more from our merchandise booth.


Our competitors show off their skills as they serve a full BBQ feast including their top-notch brisket, pork butt, ribs, sides, sauces and so much more! Finish off your meal with homemade cake and ice cream.


Stick around for the awards ceremony to see if your favorite team won a banner. Then shed some of those calories while dancing to the headlining band's incredible live music. 

General Admission includes all day drink service (beer available for guests 21+ with wristband), meal, and all day entertainment. We didn't want to, but prices have been increased this year.

Our Goal

Smokin' on the Beaver was born out of love for community.  This event is about more than good food and a good time; it is a chance to connect with our community, find new friends and, of course, share in some friendly competition.

Our priority is to keep entry prices low so we can include as many teams possible. Our theory? The more teams, the more people, the more fun and the more FOOD! Smokin' on the Beaver is all about the teams and our intention is to keep it that way! ​                 


A very special 'Thank You' to Gary Worthy for making Smokin' on the Beaver a reality.
