NASHVILLE, TN — After nearly three decades in operation, Famous Dave’s, the fast-growing barbeque franchise with 134 restaurants in markets across the country, is launching its first ever All Star BBQ Competition right in the nation’s capital of barbecue, Nashville, Tennessee. 

Hosted by the best-known barbecue restaurant brand in America, 10 of America’s best BBQ teams including Sunny Moody, WFC World Steak Champion and Food Network Star, Brad Leighninger, KCBS Team of the Year and Tim Scheer, Memphis in May Grand Champion, will be firing up their smokers and competing in categories of chicken, ribs and wild card. The prize purse includes a pool of $5,000 as well as qualification for the top two winners into the 2022 WFC Barbecue Championship. 

"We couldn’t be more excited to host these industry heavyweights," said Dallas Massey, VP of Marketing VP of Marketing and Off Premise. "We love any chance to bring the community together with BBQ, and can’t wait to see what the contestants have in store for us."
