The most recent WSOBBQ or as locals have known this to be the American Royal World Series of BBQ has formally announced the big winners for the 2021 cook-off in Kansas! Not only is this competition one of the largest in the USA, but it’s also covering so many categories that embrace the BBQ experience.
The main competition has always placed a big emphasis on BBQ meats with entrees such as chicken, pork, pork ribs, and brisket but also provides opportunities for BBQ hopefuls in other categories. These categories include all of the most popular side dishes that go with any BBQ meal including beans, potatoes, vegetables, and desserts! There is even a cook-off that has been dedicated to the kids that cover two separate age groups of 6-10 and 11-16.
You might not expect to see anything other than chicken, but there’s a category reserved for turkey, sausage, and even the Best Party of the Year exhibitor awards! If you can expect that the WSOBBQ covers everything BBQ, they pulled off quite a feat this year, to say the least. So starting off with some of the feature competitions, here’s who made the big wins doing what they do best.

Hot Sauce Contest Winners Info

They included this year’s entries with mild and spicy tomato, vinegar, and mustard, and then there were the specialty sauces. All were hot to get some attention, but we’ve got the winning results right here:https://www.americanroyal.com/bbq/spring-events/sauce-contest/

2021 Hall Of Fame Inductees
This year was another great addition for new inductees onto the BBQ hall of fame but one name that stands out like shining gold is none other than Meathead Goldwyn! If you’ve heard of AmazingRibs.com then you’ll know that Meathead is among the newest BBQ Hall of Famer that has made some big headlines in this year alone. Not only did he write the science behind the Smoke Ring but his science background explained what The Stall is all about.
While his books may have reached the New York Times Bestseller list enough times, he’s also on the top lists for Amazon, Wired, and Epicurious. If he isn’t applying his scientific theory to show how BBQ methods are explained in a very down to Earth way, he finds more than enough time to debunk many of the rumors that have mystified BBQ for so many decades.
