Are you new to barbequing or trying to perfect your technique? This contest is for you! Join us at Zona Rosa for a Family Backyard BBQ Competition.

Family teams of 2 (1 child and 1 adult) will compete to determine who makes the best burgers and steak. Children will prepare burgers and adults will prepare steaks then turn them into our Kansas City BBQ Society certified judges to crown the winner.

This event is for anyone who is wanting to get a start in the BBQ world – whether it be at home or in a BBQ Competition. All teams must comprise one child and one adult. Children must be between the ages of 6-16. Burgers are on the menu first and we’ll finish up with steak. Adults must supervise the entire cooking process of the burgers.
