Beat the Heat is a 2-day event where professional BBQ teams compete for 15k in cash prizes. Held annually in Alamosa, Colorado, teams travel from all over the country to compete. There is a People’s Choice category which allows eventgoers to taste BBQ from professional teams and vote for their favorite.

Beat the Heat has a wide range of activities for everyone. In addition to tasting People’s Choice BBQ, eventgoers can compete in the Cornhole Tournament, let their kids do the cooking in the Kid’s Q and run in the Hogwaller Mud Run. Plus in 2019, we added a Craft Beer Tasting. Don’t forget, there’s live music, yard games, food vendors for you to enjoy!
