Smokeout (barbecue cookout/festival)

The term “smokeout” usually refers to the American Cancer Society’s “Great American Smokeout”—a day when people are encouraged to give up smoking. The American Cancer Society has held “smokeouts” since 1976 and “Great American Smokeout” is trademarked.

Chicago’s “Windy City Smokeout” was held July 12-14, 2013 and was trademarked “Entertainment in the nature of a barbecue and country music festival.” The word “smokeout” here means a barbecue cookout. Baylor University (Waco, TX) held a “Bear Smokeout” in April 2003, featuring local barbecue vendors, live bands, a dunking booth, face painting and competitions. However, there were few officially named “smokeouts” before the Windy City Smokeout in 2013.

4 April 2003, Dallas (TX) Morning News, “Festivities compliment marquis weekend series” by Brian Davis:

Chicago: Windy City Smokeout Gave Us Meat Sweats In The Best Way
Barbecue from Texas, North Carolina and Chicago

By Adam Miller
Honky-tonk music and barbecue don’t really come to mind when Chicagoans think of the ultra-modern hotels, restaurants and shiny galleries that make up the emergent River North portion of downtown Chicago. But that’s exactly what was happening this weekend at the first annual Windy City Smokeout.

Organized by Bub City, one of Chicago’s newest barbecue joints, the three-day festival was a celebration of country music (with Jerrod Niemann, David Nail and Pat Green headlining) and, more importantly, serious barbecue — with an emphasis on the Texas and Carolina styles.
