It’s official! The Sam’s Club® National BBQ Tour is keeping the title as the richest and largest BBQ tour in the nation. Of course, by richest we mean – the $500,000 prize purse is back! Beginning Feb. 21, the journey will kick off in Kissimmee, Fla. and wind its way to the Sam’s Club Headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. One proven grand champion will then take home the coveted check for $50,000.

The numbers don’t lie! This competition is serious – and it’s not too late to throw your team’s name in the hat. There are just a few spots left in the preliminary local competitions so visit kcbs.us/samstour to find a competition near you. 

If your team is already registered but you want to increase your chances at progressing past the local round, Secondary Registration will commence on Wed., Jan. 21 at 12 p.m. EST.
