What is Boda Getta BBQ? / Great BBQ in a fun, family atmosphere!

Join us on May 8 & 9 as professional BBQ teams from across the southeast descend upon University Station RV Resort in their decked out cooking rigs to compete for $11,000 in cash. This year’s Boda Getta BBQ is presented by the Auburn Rotary Club.

Think you’re the tailgate master? If your answer is yes, we invite you to PROVE IT. Rally your friends and compete for the title “Best Tailgater in Auburn.” Place first and hear your team’s name announced during Auburn’s first home football game. Did we mention the ridiculously large trophy you’ll win to display at your tailgate next fall?

If you think grilling is more of a spectator sport, bring your best tailgate chair and join us for a weekend of live music, food, vendors and good times.
