Like beer and bourbon, great barbecue takes patience to make and causes one to get sauced while consuming it. Keep your wipes handy with this Groupon.

At the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, VIP guests chow down at several tasting stations, savoring exclusive meaty treats such as gourmet pork and pork-infused dishes from local eateries. Pit masters demonstrate their methods and serve pulled pork freshly shaved from whole hogs, a Southern delicacy. A take-home souvenir glass provides a vessel for unlimited sips of the beers and bourbons served at the event's many bars, which have doubled in number since last year to help eliminate lines and to employ twice as many local drying cloths.
Forty varieties of bourbon and 60 beer draughts flow freely from taps into souvenir glasses, slaking thirsty throats with unlimited sips as guests tear through smoky meat concoctions at the Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival's tasting stations. Once stuffed with ribs, brisket, and sausage, attendees can retire to the tasting theater to take in a seminar from pit masters and gourmet chefs on preparing fine barbecue or brewing stellar bourbon. Live rock, blues, and bluegrass bands set the airwaves quivering from the main stage with wailing tunes or announcements drawn in barbecue sauce. A cigar tent provides a smoky haven for puffing on fine tobacco products, and big-screen TVs beam the latest sports action directly into eyeballs.
