Head to the hills of Frisco this weekend for the mountain town's annual two-day Barbecue Challenge, a heated event that brings together competitive grillers from across the country. The riotous pig races are always a big draw, as is the pancake breakfast, live music and parade of barbecue grills, barrels and smokers that take over Main Street.
