Baseball and BBQ — both are favorite American past times with celebrated World Series championships. Pork Barrel BBQ just participated in our first “World Series of BBQ” competition at the American Royal in Kansas City, Missouri. This marks the 31st year the best of the best in competition BBQ have made their way to the old stockyards of Kansas City to compete for the title of Grand Champion. Over 500 teams compete in the three-day BBQ competition and this year over 100,000 fans and fellow BBQ lovers came out to show their support, making this the largest and most attended BBQ event of the year!
We caught up with some famous BBQ Pitmasters, like Rod Gray of Pellet Envy and Tuffy Stone of Cool Smoke. And we even had a BBQ cookoff showdown starring our very own Heath Hall and the “Godfather of BBQ,” Johnny Trigg. The crowd enjoyed watching the Kansas City Barbecue Society’s All-American Grill Master Series Competition cookoff as Heath Hall and Johnny Trigg battled it out in friendly “iron chef” grilling competition on stage.
