MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC) – Friday proved to be the perfect day to mix good food with great weather at the Memphis in May World Championship BBQ Cooking Contest.

Teams competed in everything from sauces and rubs to shoulders and ribs. USA Today Weekend rated Memphis in May World Championship BBQ Cooking Contest as America's number one barbecue competition.

WMC Action News 5's Amy Speropoulos talked with Benjie Williams from Team Pork-o-saurus about his love of barbecue.

"Our barbecue motto is ‘It's not a hobby, it's a barbecue addiction one backyard patio at a time,'" he said.

The competition brings hundreds of people to the Bluff City each year. It kicked off on Thursday night.

The competition started at 12:30 p.m. Friday and ended at midnight; gates will open again Saturday at 11 a.m.

One thing to keep in mind is that this is a competition: You cannot buy barbecue from the teams, but you can buy food from the other vendors in the park.

Tickets will be sold at the north and south gates of Tom Lee Park or you can go online through Ticketmaster. Click here to buy tickets: http://bit.ly/1jlizdI
