WELCOME TO THE BUDWEISER BBQ SERIES

The Budweiser BBQ Series is a culmination of 4 BBQ Competitions in the St. Louis Area!

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?

See how it works

HOW IT WORKS

The Budweiser BBQ Series is a group of events that will be sure to bring competition BBQ to the next level!  These events will consist of the “Big 4” categories (Chicken, Ribs, Pork, and Brisket) which will be counted towards the Overall Grand Champion of each event.  At the end of the year, the best three of four scores for each category and for overall points will be combined to calculate the placement of End of the Year Budweiser BBQ Series Points.

Scoring Example

The highlighted scores indicate the lowest of the four scores that will be dropped.  If a team only competes in 3 events, only those 3 scores will be counted.

Budweiser BBQ Series End of the Year Payout: $10,000

The Budweiser BBQ Series has an additional $10,000 Payout at the end of the season! The top 5 teams in each category and overall will receive a payout as follows. $10,000 is our guaranteed Payout for End of the Year Budweiser BBQ Series Prize Money, and we are working to increase that payout as well!

The team with the highest overall Budweiser Points will receive a Brand New Cookshack PG500!
