This year's event was September 15, 2019


In a city where treif BBQ restaurants far outnumber synagogues, it was only natural that a creative team at the oldest, Jewish Orthodox congregation in the Mid-South, Anshei Sphard-Beth El Emeth (ASBEE), decided thirty-one years ago to offer a kosher alternative to the long-standing Memphis BBQ contest of the swine variety.

ASBEE is proud to produce the ASBEE World Kosher BBQ Competition and Festival, which has become one of the year's most anticipated events in the Memphis Jewish community. This year, the festival hosted 35 teams and more than 3,000 attendees.

Whether you choose to participate in the BBQ contest, basketball tournament, pickle-eating contest, children's activities or would just like to treat yourself to good food, family fun, and old-fashioned southern hospitality, you don't have to be Jewish or kosher to join us!
