AL Whole Hog Cookoff April 12-13, 2024

We are coming back on April 13th for our Annual Hog Cookoff.   Are you ready for the excitement?  The contestants arrive starting Friday for setup and prep.  The Post is open to all others and for taste testing on Saturday, April 13, 2024, from noon to 6 p.m.

They are coming from all over to gather at Chapel Hill Post 6 to topple the champion and take home with them the coveted Best of Show moniker. Peoples Choice Award!  You can be part of the history-making event by attending as a “taste tester” and maybe you will guess which one is finally selected.  We think we can hold on tightly to the crown, but we will need your support by coming on by and checking all of the entries.

Join us for the thrilling 2024 American Legion Post 6 Cook-Off, where the sizzling flavors of North Carolina’s finest barbecue await! This North Carolina Pork Council-sanctioned event promises an epic showdown of culinary prowess. Compete in the Culinary Division for a chance to win prestigious trophies, cash prizes, and even entry into the NC Whole Hog Barbeque State Championship.

Or showcase your skills in the Blind Taste Division and vie for the coveted People’s Choice Award. Remember to adhere to the strict rules and regulations, ensuring a fair and exciting competition. Don’t miss the Chief Cooks meeting on Friday night to determine judging order, then get ready to fire up those grills and showcase your BBQ mastery. With live music, delicious food, and friendly competition, it’s an event you won’t want to miss!


Stop!  Before you gather up your rigs, children, and family for our event.

We have moved from our historic Legion Road site to a modern veteran family-friendly site near NC HWY 54 W at White Cross Road.
