April 26, 2016
It's a wrap in Las Vegas and that means we have announced the first ten teams to move on to the National Championship in Bentonville later this year!

If you missed any of the action, please head over to our Facebook page to check out all the live videos that we posted throughout the weekend.  That's right, we said LIVE!  For the first time ever, Sam's Club sent a video crew to catch all the action and stream the awards ceremony live online for all those fans of BBQ that couldn't make it to Vegas.  We were very fortunate to have been a part of this process and are excited to have them back at more events in the future!  Click here to see the action - https://www.facebook.com/KansasCityBarbequeSociety/

Here are the Top Ten moving on to the National Championship in Bentonville:

  1.  Big Poppa Smokers
  2. Smokin Mo's BBQ
  3. Hickory and Spice BBQ
  4. Iowa's Smokey D's BBQ
  5. Jo-Bawb's BBQ
  6. Maddog's BBQ
  7. Pellet Envy
  8. Rooftop BBQ
  9. Team America
  10. Son of Smoke (Unfortunately Son of Smoke will not be able to make the National event so the 11th place team will be moving forward to Bentonville)
  11. Mar-B-Que's BBQ

The next stop along the tour is in Overland Park, KS.  Come out and see us for another free day of fun - open to the public!
