Longing for a weekend where it’s less about the fast pace and more about the slow down?  Looking for a place where the air is rich with hickory smoke and the long roasted aroma of barbeque? Well, Munfordville understands and we think maybe the BBQ does too.  

The Big Buffalo Crossing Cook Off is back in 2021 & will be October 15 &.16.  We can’t wait!! 


Truth is, the Cook-Off is kind of a BIG deal.  We annually host a Kansas City Barbeque Society Sanctioned event.  We are also a Kentucky State Championship cook-off.  In 2019 we hosted over thirty teams from around the nation and we’ve had attendees from all over the globe.  In 2021, the teams will be competing for $15,000 in prize money.  Think you may want to compete too?  Great, you can find out how to sign up by clicking here.

Come hungry! Although the BBQ teams who are competing cannot sell BBQ, there will be amazing food vendors that you won’t want to miss.  There will also be several merchandise vendors on the courthouse lawn throughout the weekend.  And even though the teams can’t sell you their food, sometimes if they aren’t busy they love to chat and may even share a few secrets here and there.  It’s been known to happen!
