Cornhole Tournament

Masters Series

We're letting the big boys do their thing in this KSBC-sanctioned competition. We're looking forward to the contestants pulling out all the stops in all four meat categories to see who will take home our first year's grand prize. We've got a purse of $7,200 for this event, and are looking forward to seeing some great meats cooked up!

Backyard BBQ

Less meat options isn't always a bad thing, especially when they're cooked up right. We've got a KSBC-sanctioned Backyard BBQ competition we hope brings out the best from the region. With a purse of $700.00 for this event, we're hoping competitors bring their A-game to Mozingo Lake BBQ.

People's Choice

Come show off your favorite wing sauce recipe with this add-on competition that is always a crowd favorite. Best of all, the winner gets to choose their pick of the litter to what local charity gets the $500.00 prize money. We're selling tickets to the public for this event, who will then take their tickets around to the wings they find the most intriguing.
