A Little About Us

This event was started in 2011 for two reasons:

1. to bring the thrill of professional KCBS BBQ to Central Illinois; and

2. to raise money for very worthy local charities.

In 2016 our event moved from Morton, IL to Festival Park at the Peoria Riverfront, and in 2020 our event moved again to Eureka, IL. Our event features the following: A KCBS professional BBQ competition featuring some of the country’s best touring teams. A backyard competition for local BBQ enthusiasts to show off their skills. And in 2021 we plan to have local attractions, vendors and food!

All proceeds from our event go to local charities. To date we have donated over $70,000.00 to those charities. We hope to keep increasing that number each year!
