To further Prairie Fresh‘s commitment to the sport of competition barbeque and encourage amateur barbeque enthusiasts to try the sport, Prairie Fresh is pleased to launch the Prairie Fresh Rib Battle Series in partnership with the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS). The Rib Battle Series will incorporate a One-Meat Rib contest and add thousands of dollars in extra prize money and bragging rights to KCBS-sanctioned barbeque contests across the United States. Winning pitmasters will be featured across KCBS and Prairie Fresh digital platforms. Barbeque contest organizers will have a chance to add another exciting element to their contest, sponsored by Prairie Fresh.

The Rib Battle Series will be open to both grilling and outdoor smoking enthusiasts, as well as Master and Backyard series competition pitmasters. Active KCBS member pitmasters will receive KCBS Rib Team of the Year points for their respective series.
