By November, most Yankees stash their grills in the garage behind the snowblowers, but farther south the coals of barbecue season have achieved a perfect ash. The National BBQ News invites the top 10 teams from each of the national sanctioning organizations to the National BBQ Festival in Waycross, Ga., on Nov. 5 and 6. A $5 admission fee earns you either a souvenir racing pig (like a rubber ducky) or five tasting tickets to sample pulled pork. Keep the pig or enter it to race down a sluice through a faux swamp. In addition to barbecue competitions and the pig races, prizes are awarded for best pecan, sweet potato, and apple pies. Waycross Exchange Fairgrounds, 800-385-0002, www.nationalbbqfestival.com
