Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS)

What is KCBS?


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.
