"Just amazing"
This is the location of an old pig iron factory and it is wonderful to experience the history that it envelops. Very thankful that the city did not tear down this landmark and we were able to visit. Another bonus, it is free! If you are in Birmingham, check it out!

What You'll Get

According to folk etymologists, the term "barbecue" is derived from the French "barbe coup," referring to the annual pig picking commemorating the infamous Bearded Rebellion. Celebrate saucy beards with today's Groupon: for $17, you get adult admission for two to the Stokin' The Fire BBQ Festival on August 20, benefiting Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark (a $34 value).

The seventh-annual Sloss Furnaces' Stokin' The Fire BBQ Festival is a barbecue competition with a live soundtrack. Barbecue from local teams will compete for the tummies of the populous in the People's Choice competition and for the taste buds of designated judges in various categories. Cast-iron trophies and prize money are bestowed upon the best burner in each category, and live music from The Rhythms, New Grass Troubadors, and Culture Dred accompanies the sound of sizzling sauces. Meanwhile, pint-sized participants can enjoy the Kids’ Zone, which features games, crafts, and a palpable absence of pigs playing lawn darts. All proceeds from the fest go toward the restoration and preservation of Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark, host to a museum commemorating Birmingham's industrial past, a metal-arts facility, and barbecue champions.
