kcbs-logoThe Queen Creek BBQ Battle is officially confirmed for February 19th and 20th, 2016 in Queen Creek AZ, formerly known as the Eastmark at the Great Parks BBQ Bash.

Over 35 teams are signed up and eager to compete for the Arizona State Championship in this KCBS and ICBA sanctioned event. Better yet – this is a People’s Choice event, so it’s a great event for the public to attend on Saturday and taste some of the best BBQ Arizona and regional pitmasters has to offer. Total payouts for both KCBS and ICBA are $10,000, so this draws some great BBQ teams from California, New Mexico, Idaho and surrounding states.

The event will be located at Queen Creek Library, off of Rittenhouse Road and Ellsworth Loop at 21802 S Ellsworth Rd., Queen Creek, AZ.

Better yet – admission is free. Gates open at 10 AM, People’s Choice starts at 11 AM until sold out (or 2 PM). Samples are $2, all proceeds support local charities. Stick around for the awards ceremony at 5 PM.

For more information, contact the event organizer, Ed Quisenberry. If you’re a KCBS CBJ, you can register here.
