Hot Pickin' and Finger Lickin' BBQ and Bandfest Fun Planned


Spring is here and it's time to start enjoying outdoor, hometown events. We will all have that opportunity on April 21st and 22nd when the Hot Pickin’ Finger Lickin’ Barbecue and Band Fest will be held in downtown Sallisaw, sponsored by Sallisaw Main Street.

This hot time includes a variety of live music and a barbecue cook off that guarantees toe tapping and good eating.

The event kicks off at 11 a.m. Friday when Sallisaw Main Street members will begin offering Indian tacos in front of the library for a mere $6.

Music begins Friday at 7:30 p.m. with Whiskey Revolver who will provide entertainment until 9:30 p.m. Then on Saturday BBQ Bill and The Smokin' Chickens will fire up the music again at 9:30 a.m. followed by Crossroads at 12:30.

“I think the bands are going to be real good,” said Margaret Perry of Sallisaw Main Street. Perry encourages festival goers to bring their lawn chairs to relax and enjoy the music.

The finger lickin’ commences at 11 a.m. on Saturday. That’s when barbecue tasters’ kits will be available for $7. The kit entitles the taster to sample all the wares of the barbecue cook off competitors, and includes a ticket so the taster may vote for the People’s Choice winner. The People’s Choice winner gets $200 and a huge trophy. The cook off winners, decided by a judge’s panel, get $200 for first, $150 for second, $100 for third and $50 for fourth. A Let’s Get Sauced contest will be held, for the best tasting sauce, and that winner gets $100. 

Perry said Sallisaw Main Street provides between 500 and 600 pounds of pork butt for the cook off, and competition for the Peoples’ Choice award is intense.

“They all want that trophy. This is a real fun event, and the barbecue is outstanding,” Perry said.

Vendors will also have booths at the event for those who need a little shopping along with the food and the music. Booth space is available for only $30 and there is still plenty of time to reserve your space.
