Syndicate Smokedown is a large-scale nonprofit BBQ competition hosted by the Fort Worth Stock Show Syndicate. A smokedown is self-defined as a showdown of Texas BBQ pitmasters in search of the perfect BBQ dish and the pitmaster prize. Syndicate Smokedown was started as a way for Fort Worth to celebrate and indulge in Texas’ finest BBQ, bring the Cowtown community together, and give back.

This event is benefiting the Syndicate’s mission to make the dreams of young livestock exhibitors come true through educational scholarships. These scholarships equip and encourage individual students in the pursuit of higher education and careers in the agricultural industry.

The event will feature live music, beer and other beverages, and barbecue.
