Once again the Great American Barbecue was a great weekend to spend cooking outdoors. This year the organizers bumped the date up to be the week before the long Memorial Day holiday weekend. This gave the competition teams the chance to still compete in this great contest, and also be able to spend some valuable family time over the long weekend. Burnt Finger BBQ came out of the weekend with calls in 4 of 8 categories we entered, and two local Kansas City teams walked away with Grand Championships in each of KCBS contests.

Are you looking for something fun to do this weekend? Why not head down to Kansas City for one of the greatest barbecue competitions/festivals known to man. May 21st and 22nd will be host to the 6th annual Great American Barbecue Festival at the Wyandotte County Park at Beautiful Capital Federal Park (or Sandstone Amphitheater for those familiar with the KC area). There will be plenty of activities on site to enterain the family, including a carnival, a dedicated Kidz Zone, food/equipment vendors, live music, fireworks, and even a book signing by yours truly!!!
On Memorial Day weekend, hundreds of the world’s top competition barbecue teams will converge on Sandstone Amphitheater outside of Kansas City for one of the largest barbecue celebrations the country has to offer, the Great American Barbecue Festival. With an expected crowd of 50,000 people, the organizers are estimating over 70,000 pounds meat and 60,000 gallons of beer will be consumed over the course of the three day weekend. To top things off, they’ve also invited the BBQ Addicts to give an official culinary demonstration on how make a perfect Bacon Explosion…plus we’ll be unveiling our latest project, and it has nothing to do with our upcoming book!
