5th Annual Smokin’ Q Classic
The Smokin’ Q Classic is an official Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned event where teams compete for prize money and the next level of competition.
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 2013 Teams will compete for a guaranteed $10,000 of prize money, KCBS points and trophies. If team participation exceeds 60 or more teams, the Smokin’ Q Classic will award $12,500 in prize money.
There is something for everyone at the Smokin’ Q Classic!
Featured at the Smokin’ Q Classic are 2 oz BBQ Tastes for purchase, a street fair, live entertainment, a refreshing beer garden, and the Second Annual Blazin’ Bike Show.
