Due to the uncertainties related to NY State rules during the pandemic regarding large gatherings and other mitigating factors, Oinktoberfest had been rescheduled until August, 2022. Subsequently, the limited availability of resources and personnel for onsite logistics made going forward impossible. It was a most difficult decision, but all good things must come to an end.
It has been a great run for the past 18 years and I hope you have enjoyed your times attending what was the longest continuously running BBQ competition in the state. Many thanks for all who have attended in the past and an additional shoutout to the amazing support of the teams who participated over the years.
For awhile we will be leaving this site as it was to help keep the 18 years in perspective and to provide viewers knowledge of what the Oinktoberfest BBQ festival entailed.. ENJOY
What immediately comes to mind when you see the words, Memphis style? Most likely bourbon, BBQ and blues. Memphis is famous for plenty of things but BBQ and the Blues epitomizes what that city is about. If we break it down, Memphis is one of the four major regional areas of BBQ in this country, the other three being Carolina, Kansas City and Texas. What better way to recognize that distinction but to have that Memphis Style as our theme for Oinktoberfest.
In Memphis, barbecued pork is King, ribs and pulled pork shoulder, dry rubbed and slow smoked with wood. Sauce is usually served on the side. Common sides are coleslaw, cornbread, baked beans, greens, mac and cheese. BBQ nachos and pizza are also part of the BBQ cuisine.
