KCBS Great American BBQ Sweepstakes

Congratulations to Sam Fretz of Tulsa, OK!

Out of a whopping 8,600+ entries, Sam was the lucky Grand Prize winner of our Great American BBQ Sweepstakes!! He will receive a BBQ Block Party for 25 of his closest friends and family (his friends should start sucking up now). Sam will receive a combo smoker/grill by Good-One and a year’s supply of barbeque essentials from our Tour Partners too.

  • TABASCO Chipotle Sauce
  • Kingsford Charcoal
  • Weber Grill Creations
  • SCOTT Shop Towels
  • TUMS Dual Action

Since Sam is new to the Kansas City Barbeque Society, he will also receive authentic BBQ apparel from the KCBS store and free admission to a Certified Barbeque Judging Class. We have a feeling that Sam will become a regular on the BBQ circuit. Make sure you say hi to our newest member when you see him.

We would also like to congratulate our 20 KCBS Prize Pack Winners. These winners will enjoy KCBS merchandise and products from the Great American BBQ Tour too. Winners should receive their KCBS Prize Pack by the end of October.
