Photo by Pinky P.The Autry museum is hosting the second annual Barbeque Championship and Festival tomorrow, Saturday, April 14, 2007, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Griffith Park. 32 teams will be competing for some kind of smoke-and-meat-infused title -- and for the greater glory of barbecue. Because what could be better than marinated, rubbed, glazed and barbecued animal flesh?

**If you want to prove yourself a true glutton you can enter either the rib-eating or pie-eating contest. Hell, why not do both?

**Indoors and outdoors arts and crafts activities will be available for kids. Lessons in the white man's lambada (AKA line-dancing) will be available for adults .
