Coming September 12th you can find out who has the best barbecue in the nation.

As the World Series of Barbecue will be held Chicago.

On Saturday September 12th barbecue masters across the nation will be pit against each other here, with guests allowed to taste the food for themselves at Soldier Field.

DNAInfo reports, that the "Windy City BBQ Classic will return to Chicago from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. that Saturday, Sept. 12 in Soldier Field's South Parking Lot, 1410 Museum Campus Drive.

"For the first time, the annual contest will be sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society, meaning the overall winner will earn automatic bids to the Jack Daniel's Invitation and American Royal World Series of Barbecue" Both of those are the biggest barbecue competitions in the world.

There are over 70 contestants competing on September 12th and the public is welcome to join in viewing as well as sampling their delectable barbecue goodies.

500 tickets including "VIP" access will be sold for $100 each. The tickets include barbecue samples, giveaways, a guided tour of contest prep and beverages from Lagunitas Brewing, Tito's Vodka and Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine.

Now you may think $100 is a bit steep but the proceeds of this event will go to the  Operation BBQ Relief, a non-profit founded in response to the vicious tornado that swept through Joplin, Mo. in 2011.

Now if you say, well that's cool but I can't make it there on that Saturday we have another great barbecue tasting event and it includes more than just samples but full meals of barbecue ribs, pulled pork, barbecue chicken even pizza! Along with tasty craft and domestic brews and live music all afternoon long.
