Saturday afternoon people gathered under the shade trees at the Mena Elks Lodge for a BBQ cook off.
Teams took part competing in categories such as, showmanship, best side dishes, best BBQ chicken, pork ribs, pulled pork, and overall champion.
The overall winners were the Junkyard Dogs BBQ Team.
After the winners for all categories was announced patrons bought plates of BBQ.
Proceeds of the cook off will go to feeding nearly 500 kids this Christmas, an Elks tradition that helps feed Polk County families in need during the holiday season.
The Elks would like to thank everyone who participated and came out to support this worthy cause.
