As many of you know, one of Lexington’s largest fires destroyed the Lexington Home Brand “Dixie” Furniture Plant in December of 2017. Our original understanding was that crews would be able to hold their investigation, begin clean up, and have everything back to normal weeks before the Cook Off would even take place. Unfortunately, we learned that that was not the case and we were forced to cancel the 2018 BBQ Capital Cook Off.
But while the fire may have set us back a bit, it certainly did not stop us. Crews began clean up at the beginning of October and we are certain the competitor area and amphitheater will be better than ever in time for the 2019 BBQ Capital Cook Off. Join us as we rise from the ashes and make the 8th year the largest year ever!
