The Smokinâ Q Classic is an official Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned event. Teams compete for prize money and trophies.
Hosted by the Vista Village Business Association, BBQ teams descend on Historic Downtown Vista on 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 $TBD of prize money, KCBS points and trophies. If team participation exceeds 60 or more teams, the Smokinâ Q Classic will award $TBD in prize money.
