This fifth annual barbecue cooking competition puts Chicago's favorite restaurants and local amateurs against each other for the chance to win the title of "Smoke-out Champion." The winner receives a Gilded Grill trophy and is decided on by a public vote as well as a few celebrity judges. The event should bring in almost 20 competitors and over 1,000 attendees. Some of the restaurants who participated in last year's event are The Fifty/50, Smoke Daddy, The Bedford and Moonshine. The event also features live music throughout the day and Moonshine's own brewed beer available for purchase.
