SmokeSlam is organized by Mempho Presents, a group with deep roots in Memphis, music and barbecue. Melzie Wilson, a lifelong supporter of competition barbecue and respected community leader with over 20+ years in the sport, has joined the SmokeSlam steering committee to help organize the event: “I have invested many years of my life into the barbecue world, and I’m excited to see a multi-sanctioned barbeque competition, combined with an expanded fan experience, come to our city. The name, ‘SmokeSlam,’ perfectly captures the essence of barbecue and the intensity of competition, which is what this event is all about.”
