When it comes to competitions, it doesn?t get any bigger than the Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS). We report the latest happenings from 100s of barbeque contests held in the USA and throughout the world.  

Competitive style BBQ has came a long way from its humble beginnings stemming from local chili cookoffs. The first BBQ competition was the Cow County BBQ Cookout in June 3, 1972 in Unvalued, Texas.

Today each year there are over 50 major competitions held throughout the US and 100s worldwide. No matter your experience in the competitive grilling and BBQ circuit we feature all the stories, tips, and information you need to level up your cooking game.
