Thank you to our 29th Annual Barbecue Under the Oaks Sponsors!
“Grillin’ Gone Wild”
Centennial Plaza- Gulfport, MS
Barbecue Under the Oaks, now in its 29th year, features the friendly competitive spirit of about 30 cooking teams (“Ribmeisters”) as they try to “out-do” each other to create the most succulent, smoky, fall-off-the bone barbecue delicacies to thrill the crowds, along with a wide array of traditional down home “fixins” and even gourmet accouterments. Ribmeister teams prepare for the event long in advance, and many of them fire up their grills and smokers in the dark of night to slow smoke their ribs, pulled pork, brisket, and other offerings long before the crowds arrive.
