Starting the series this year, we will be taking our grills out to the BBQ Blizzard at Hidden Valley Ski Resort where competitors will be competing for $4500 while hitting the slopes of the Polar Plunge. The next event is the Twisted Belly BBQ Blowout at the Chesterfield Amphitheater in Chesterfield, MO. While the competitors will be turning in the main 4 categories for the Grand Champion, Friday night will offer a new take to competitions with an “Anything Pork” category, but will include on-site judging. In late September the series will have its third event that needs no introduction, The Wildwood BBQ Bash. “The Bash” is a gauntlet of categories which includes the Main four, but adds Chili, Pork Steaks, Chef’s Choice, and Dessert. While the event is pushes competitors to bring the best the entire weekend, there is no other event like it! The Budweiser BBQ Series will end the year in Eureka Missouri at the “Get Your Licks on Route 66” BBQ Contest. Being the last event of the series is something special, with the teams fighting for those last few points, this is sure to draw a very competitive field!
Although each event will have its own purse, the teams will be competing for the Budweiser Series Championship and an additional $10,000 in prize money to be distributed over the top teams!
All contests in the Budweiser BBQ Series will be qualifiers for the American Royal Invitational, a Draw in the Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational and will count towards the St. Louis BBQ Society Team of the Year Points.
BUT HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?
