The Annual Smoke on the Water BBQ Cook-Off and Music Festival is set for April 1-2, 2016, in Thomaston, Ga. Music and BBQ enthusiasts are invited to come and enjoy some of the Southeast's best barbecue and live entertainment in the area. The two day event will take place at Bickley's Lake in Thomaston.
Smoke on the Water came about early spring of 2007. A group of long-time buddies decided that the Thomaston-Upson community needed an event that included lots of great music and food. Three months later, the group was planning what would be the largest BBQ event that Thomaston had ever seen. With the help of the Florida BBQ Association, the gracious sponsors within the community, and the support from friends and family, the 2008 Smoke on the Water event had become a reality and what they had hoped it would be, an annual fundraiser for the Local Volunteer Fire Departments. Each year, Smoke on the Water has been able to give the VFD $2,000 each for their firehouses. This event has also been featured on BBQ Pitmasters, as well as another famous cooking show network.
