The Best Chicken Wing Competition on Friday will be judged by a team of celebrity judges. Cash prize for best wings is $300. Saturday’s Pork Butt competition is sanctioned and judged by the South Carolina BBQ Association and counts toward the state championship rankings.

In 2021, the Grillers Cup raised $10,000 for Help 4 Kids & Backpack Buddies. Backpack Buddies is an Horry County non-profit that works to help eliminate child hunger in the community. The organization supplies participating schools with nutritious, self-serve food to feed children when not at school.
