Cooking Low and Slow at our 8th Barn Burner

Comments Off on Cooking Low and Slow at our 8th Barn Burner

Barn Burner Grand ChampionOn October 18 and 19, 54 barbeque teams set up camp in our parking lot to compete for the Grand Champion title and the chance to compete nationally at other Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned events.

Our Barn Burner is only 1 of 5 of these BBQ competitions to happen in Northern Illinois each year!  As a result, we have had increasing interest from BBQ teams, judges and the community over the past 8 years.

This year, due to limited space some teams and judges had to be put on a wait list and unfortunately were not able to claim any spots in the weekend competition. While we hate to not have everyone be a part of the fun, it is exciting to see the potential behind this event!

We are looking into making the Barn Burner a more public-friendly event, possibly with BBQ for sale next year to spectators. Stay tuned!

Congratulations to all the winners!
