Welcome to our 4th Annual Polar Pig BBQ Event that is hosted by GMAX Automotive and KCBS sanctioned BBQ cook off being held at the Cabarrus Arena & Event Center.  

This year we are proud to announce that we will be holding a Double Entry competition again this year. We will have 1 competition on Saturday and again on Sunday. We will be capping off our team entries at 75 teams this year. Please visit our application page and get signed up.

This is a non-profit event where all proceeds are going to Food Ministry, & Toys for Tots. 

All other donations can be mailed to 6300 NC Hwy 49, Mt. Pleasant, NC 28124, if you would like to help and are not able to make the event.

We will have a vendor alley for early Christmas shopping and lots of mouthwatering BBQ to taste from our competing pit masters.

The event will be in conjunction with other events taking place at the Arena.
