The Kansas City Barbeque Society is the official sanctioning body of competitive barbeque. Each year, KCBS sanctions more than 500 competitions across the country.
Competitors will begin to cook on Friday evening and then throughout the night with a turn in for the various smoked meats some time in the early afternoon on Saturday.
Events usually have a cash prize of varying amounts. KCBS events draw crowds of spectators and depending on the prize amount, they will draw competitors from several states.
