If you're a total carnivore and love meat more than anything, then you need to check out this festival happening in Edmonton this weekend. Porkapalooza is a huge BBQ competition that hosts expert 'quers from all across Canada.
You can't miss the smell of smoked meat and charcoal as you enter the festival grounds - it's absolutely mouthwatering. Just picture it in your head right now, the sweet sound of sizzling and the smoke rising in the air as you see rack after rack of delicious rib be placed onto the grill. Taking that first bite and disregarding the complete and utter messiness of your face because it just tastes so dang good.
Here are just a few of the teams competing in this year's festival:
Rocky Mountain Smokers // Calgary, AB
Rusty's Smoke BBQ // Blue Mountains, ON
Prairie Smoke & Spice // Regina, SK
Not only does the festival just have some bomb BBQ, it also has a beer garden serving Bick Rock Brewery beer, as well as live music! AKA all the things a good festival needs.
The festival is held at Northlands Park Racetrack & Casino, and will take place Saturday from 11am-11pm and Sunday 11am-7pm. It's a FREE admission event (score!), which means you pretty much have no excuse for not going. For more information and to check out the teams competing, click here.
