Applications for the 2021 Smokin' With Smithfield Grant program are now closed.
Proud to be the largest pork producer in the world, Smithfield has been providing quality, hand-trimmed products for families to prepare in their kitchens and backyards since 1936. We have continued to grow our support of passionate barbecue enthusiasts engaged in the sport of barbecue. Smithfield is investing in the future of barbecue and is now accepting applications for the Smokin' With Smithfield Grant Program designed to support barbecue competitions across the United States.
The Smokin' With Smithfield Grant Program is open to Nonprofit, Community, and Event Organizers that host sanctioned barbecue contests, while delivering key services and resources to the contest's participating teams.
While Smithfield has other barbecue-specific programs that support the sport, our Smokin' With Smithfield Grant Program provides funding to sanctioned competitions to make them more enticing to both the Cooks and the General Public. Smokin’ With Smithfield Grants are a maximum of $3,000 to deepen the entire prize purse payout among the top 10 of all categories and top 10 overall.
