Join Us for Meat Week-Pork Barrel BBQ

Good Eats and Meets invites you to join in a GREAT event near and dear to my heart...Join us for MEAT WEEK!


Meat Week starts the last Sunday in January. For 8 nights straight, we go to a different BBQ restaurant and feast. In every participating city, there is a devoted Captain who creates the schedule of restaurants to be visited throughout the week. Each city develops their own traditions, but Meat Week typically focuses on good ol' American BBQ: Pork, ribs, brisket, barbecued chicken, and anything else you can smoke and smother in sauce. It was started in 2005 in Tallahassee, Florida by Chris Cantey and Erni Walker.


People eat BBQ together, take pictures of each other doing so, and share them on the internet. Some cities’ captains also give out awards at the end of the week for people who showed exceptional meating prowess, or to honor the best restaurants.


Unless otherwise specified, just show up! Some cities hold special events with limited seating, which will be announced on that city’s page. But for the most part, it’s an event open to all. This is NOT a Good Eats and Meets hosted event, we are joining with the folks from MEAT WEEK... Check them out! 


More than half the crew who sailed the maiden voyage of meat were herbivores. We’ve even had a few veggie captains! Many come for the camaraderie and stay for the sides. Just make sure the baked beans don’t have pork in them (they probably will) or use fries as a sauce vehicle.

I would love a local host to be there representing GEAM.  Please sign up and have a blast!
