Grill'n & Chill'n BBQ Cook-Off


2016 DATES: OCTOBER 7-8, 2016

About the Festival

Your mouth will water from the sweet smell of barbecue cooking on the grills of professional barbecue teams during the Grill’n & Chill’n BBQ Cook-off held in October as part of the Autumn Treasures Festival. Sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society, up to 30 teams will compete for prize money and championship titles.

It’s a little piece of hog heaven, so come join us for Grill’n & Chill’n in October!

About the Competition

The teams arrive on Friday and cook all night. On Saturday from 11 am - 1 pm, the teams turn in their meats to be judged by a professional line-up of KCBS certified judges.

Professional teams are judged in four categories: chicken, pork ribs, pork shoulder / butt, and beef brisket. We do not have a separate backyard team competition.

On Saturday afternoon from 1:30 - 4:30 pm, the public will get a chance to taste this awesomeness during the public tasting event. All ticket sales from this event help local charities. Winners are announced Saturday night.
