Nothing beats the smell of a BBQ... Well, except for maybe the smell of the Best BBQ Cooks around competing all at the same time! The 2018 Grillin for Grads BBQ Cookoff is returning to downtown Shreveport April 27th and 28th. Details are still coming out but it's looking to be a great weekend of fun, food and live music for the entire family to enjoy.

The annual cook off is put on by the Ark-La-Tex Ambassadors' as a fundraiser for their college scholarships. Every year the Ark-La-Tex Ambassadors’ college scholarship essay contest helps college seniors pay for college. This is a great way to give back to your community by directly impacting the future generations... and the fact it's by eating amazing BBQ that only makes it that much better.

This year there's also a cookoff for your little ones, they can compete in the Grillin for Grads Kids Cookoff on April 28th!
