We traveled to the Big Pig Jig in Vienna, GA. The 36th Annual event was held the weekend of November 3-4 and is the southeast’s largest and Georgia oldest barbecue cooking contest. This was my first time visiting the Big Pig Jig and we had a blast. We visited and yes we tasted great barbecue from competitors from all parts of the US competing in for this year’s best pork shoulder, pork ribs and whole hogs.
The atmosphere was something to see. Over 90 competitors ranging from the professional to families, all competing for the grand prize in their category. As you’ll see in the video and pictures below, there were those who have buildings at this location for this yearly competition to those have specialty trailer for the various barbecue competitions throughout the US.
In the video, we were able to not only show the happenings at this event, but we interviewed a number of the competitors. All had an interesting story from long term, multi-generation competitors to those who allowed us to tour their customized 5th wheel RV’s, a big treat for I Love RV Life.
So much fun at this years Big Pig Jig in Vienna, GA. If you enjoy seeing barbecue competitions or just want something different as your RV travels swing though Georgia, the Big Pig Jig is definitely a fun day.
As always, I Love RV Life, Jerry
