This year's event was October 22, 2017


In a city where treif BBQ restaurants far outnumber synagogues, it was only natural that a creative team at the oldest, Jewish Orthodox congregation in the Mid-South, Anshei Sphard-Beth El Emeth (ASBEE), decided twenty-nine years ago to offer a kosher alternative to the long-standing Memphis BBQ contest of the swine variety.

ASBEE is proud to produce the ASBEE World Kosher BBQ Competition and Festival, which has become one of the year's most anticipated events in the Memphis Jewish community. Last year, the festival hosted 40 teams and more than 3000 attendees.

Whether you choose to participate in the BBQ contest, basketball tournament, pickle-eating contest, children's activities or would just like to treat yourself to good food, family fun, and old-fashioned southern hospitality, you don't have to be Jewish or kosher to join us!


 THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO COMPETED, SPONSORED,  VOLUNTEERED, OR ATTENDED THE 29TH ANNUAL WORLD KOSHER BBQ COMPETITION & FESTIVAL!!!
