A duel is an arranged engagement in combat between two people, with matched weapons, in accordance with agreed-upon rules. The Dueling Pigs BBQ Challenge won’t involve combat but competition. And it won’t involve two people with weapons but up to 20 contestants and their grills matching their skills in smoking the tastiest pulled pork this side of the Chesapeake.


This will become an annual squaring-off of some of the best, little known, grill masters the region has to offer.

The Dueling Pigs BBQ Challenge, a fundraising event for SAWs® Virginia, is destined to become an annual, regional, family-friendly event with something for everyone. The Revolutionary War theme is a play on a time when dueling was how some differences of opinion were settled. Watch as Hamilton and Burr engage in a verbal duel that takes a fun twist. 

But who has the best pulled pork will be settled by a People’s Choice judging of up to 20 pit masters from DC, Maryland and Virginia (the DMV).

The event is hosted by Highmark Brewery, 390 Kings Hwy, Fredericksburg, April 23, 2022, from noon till 8 PM. Judging will occur from Noon to 3:00 PM. Winners will be announced at 3:30 PM. 

In addition to lots of barbecue, Highmark’s craft beers will be available with live music provided by popular, local musicians.

Parking is free!
