Announcing Meet the Legends – an all-day BBQ extravaganza with the true masters of ‘cue – new to this year’s Windy City Smokeout! Experience the festival like never before with the ultimate “Meat-and-Greet” on Saturday, July 14 from 10 AM – 7 PM. Purchase tickets here.
Windy City Smokeout is the only place to experience this once-in-a-lifetime BBQ extravaganza with the true Legends of Barbecue. The all-day class runs you through the paces of three different BBQ circuits to discover the variations and nuances of regional pit cooking. From Georgia is four-time World BBQ Champion Myron Mixon of Jack’s Old South; hailing from Taylor, TX is third-generation pitmaster and James Beard American Classics award-winner Wayne Mueller of Louie Mueller Barbecue; and from the heart of the Midwest in Murphysboro, IL is BBQ Hall of Famer Mike Mills of 17th Street.
In between ‘cuing and learning life lessons, a “Taste the Park” food pass lets you enjoy the different offerings from 20 other pitmasters throughout the festival. Cap off the day with a variety of libations and a sit-down dinner with the Legends – allowing you and a guest to taste the fruits of your labor – before taking in festival headliner Brett Eldredge’s evening performance.

-One 3-day VIP pass to Windy City Smokeout
