The Kingsford® $40K Challenge
The Kingsford $40K Challenge Is Here!
Kingsford charcoal and competition barbeque are the ultimate championship team! During the last two years, KCBS teams have battled in a season-long competition for prize money and prestige in the Kingsford Points Chase. In 2012, Kingsford is back to fire things up on the barbeque circuit. For the third straight year, Kingsford is raising the stakes and offering more prize money. The Kingsford $40K Challenge will give out prize money to the Grand Champion, Reserve Grand Champion and the four Category winners at 15 KCBS sanctioned events.
The Kingsford $40K Challenge will kick off its 2012 season at the USA BBQ Championship in Las Vegas on March 30, 2012. The Challenge will be featured at some of the biggest and best BBQ competitions in the world, including: the Safeway National Capital Barbecue Battle, the American Royal, the Sam's Club National BBQ Tour Championships and the Jack Daniels' World Championship Invitational.
Winners win big with Kingsford charcoal in 2012!
