The Troy Pig Out welcomes professional BBQ teams from across the United States for this two day
competition which includes a People’s Choice Rib competition on Saturday, and the main event on Sunday.
The Troy Pig Out is officially sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society and the office of the Governor as
the New York State BBQ Championship, qualifying the winner for the National Championship. The Troy Pig
Out is also part of the Empire State BBQ Championship. Great food and great music are the main
attractions for guests to the festival, with live music filling Riverfront Park on both Saturday and Sunday,
and a special fireworks show on Saturday night over the Hudson River.
This event counts toward the NEBS Classic Barbecue Team of the Year,
