The Smokinâ€™ Q Classic is an official Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned event. Teams compete for prize money and trophies.
Hosted by When Pigs Fly BBQ and Artist Eye Events, BBQ teams descend on Historic Downtown Vista Friday afternoon to spend up to 24 hours seasoning, smoking, and grilling their choice cut of meats for competition day. Judges come from states near and far to find out whose BBQ is the best of the best. Our 2014 Teams will compete for a guaranteed $10000 of prize money, KCBS points and trophies. If team participation exceeds 60 or more teams, the Vista Q Classic will award $12500 in prize money.
