Troy Pig Out

Date: July 11, 2015
Location: Downtown Troy NY

Troy Pig Out

The Troy Pig Out is back this summer for it's 8th year, bringing the best BBQ around to downtown Troy, NY on July 11. Come enjoy a jam packed day full of music, chef demonstrations, children's activities, and what else? Great BBQ!

Now in its eighth year, the annual Troy Pig Out challenges barbeque masters from across the Northeast to duke it out for the top prize in the categories of: Best Pulled Pork, Best BBQ Chicken, Best Pork Rib, Grand Champion, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que People's Choice Pork Rib contest, Mayor’s Choice, and more.

The Troy Pig Out is an official Empire State competition sanctioned by New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo, citing New York pride in its place as the site of events that highlight the state and its tradition of excellence in offering unique foods and specialty dishes often based upon tried and true recipes that have endured through the generations.

New In 2015:

  • Take Home The Pig: Grand Champion across all three meat categories is awarded prize money, a 2015 Troy Pig Out trophy, and their business branding on the label for the Troy Pig Out Championship Hickory Barbeque Sauce and Brown Sugar Bourbon Rub for the following year.
  • Offsite Cooking Allowed: For the first time ever, local business owners can compete and vend at the Troy Pig Out without having to prepare their food onsite. This change throws the doors wide open to greater Capital Region culinary champions in their own right, inviting a diverse selection of delicious themed menu options. The sky’s the limit for a pig to fly!
  • Favorites-Focused Competition: Categories for judging will focus on crowd favorites – Pork Rib, Pulled Pork and Chicken – for their ease of preparation and accessibility to a wider audience.
  • One Day, Endless Food & Fun: 2015’s Troy Pig Out will scale back from two days to a single day festival, packed with lip-smacking BBQ and family-friendly entertainment like live music, American classic pie and hot dog eating contests, children’s games and performances, craft vendors, and so much more.

2015 Music Lineup:

Saturday, July 11
  • The Refrigerators
  • Matt Mirabile Band
  • Super 400
  • Holly & Evan
  • Jon Pipino

Don't miss out on this great day full of great BBQ, music and FUN!
