LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - Barbecue experts from all over the state and even in Laredo are flaunting their cooking skills as they compete for the top prize.

The third annual Big Bad BBQ Cook-off got underway at the Outlet Shoppes at Laredo and this year the stakes are high.

The cooks will go head to head this weekend to see who makes the best fajita, beans, brisket, chicken and ribs.

Tony Vedia, the promotor for the event says the competition is starting to become a big event in South Texas.

Vedia hopes that one day this competition will become a preferred event but until then the cooks will continue to do what they do best.

The competition got underway Friday evening but it will be going on until midnight and then on Saturday from noon until seven pm.

If anyone is interested in being a judge for Saturday’s event you must arrive before noon to sign up.
