HLSR Partnership


Cotton Holdings, Inc. is honored to partner with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo as the Title Sponsor of the World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest (WCBBQC). Established in Houston, Cotton has a strong history with the Rodeo. From our very own team members growing up with this tradition to our companies participating in the cook-off and Best Bites Competition for eight years, the Rodeo has enriched our lives and given us the opportunity to support our community.



Proud Sponsor

“Given Cotton’s long-standing presence in Houston and their commitment to the community, as well as their support of the World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest, they were a natural fit as the new title sponsor. The World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest is one of the most highly-anticipated events leading up to opening day of the Rodeo, and we are excited that Cotton will be an even bigger part of our annual contest.”

-HLSR President and CEO Chris Boleman

Results from the 2022 World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest

More than 250 barbecue teams from across Texas competed in the 2022 World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest, which drew more than 150,000 visitors over the three days. Teams competed for champion titles in the following categories: Brisket, Ribs, Chicken, Dutch Oven Dessert, and Open Contest. This year, the Cotton ‘Q Club team was presented with two awards: Best Facade and 2nd Place in the Open Contest. The latter was given to us for Executive Chef Wade’s creative Q Club Surf & Turf dish, featuring two 45-year aged Wagyu steaks and butter-poached lobster.

As the Title Sponsor, Cotton enjoyed providing an unforgettable experience for all. We look forward to seeing y’all next year!
