The Kingsford Points Chase is back!February 7, 2011 The Kingsford Points Chase is back … and it’s bigger and better.
In 2010, Kingsford fired up the world of barbeque by hosting a points chase for competitive BBQ teams that cooked with Kingsford Charcoal. The Kingsford Points Chase included 17 KCBS-sanctioned events and awarded more than $40,000 in prize money.
In 2011, Kingsford is expanding the Kingsford Points Chase to include 25 barbeque contests. The Kingsford Points Chase will again include all KCBS-sanctioned events on the Great American BBQ Tour but this year it will also include Memphis in May and 10 other KCBS events.
“The inaugural Kingsford Points Chase was a fantastic opportunity for us to elevate the sport of BBQ, support the KCBS and reward the barbeque teams,” said Kimberly Dillon, Associate Marketing Manager at Kingsford Charcoal. “For 2011, we are excited to expand the program and reward even more teams.”
To qualify for the Kingsford Points Chase this year, teams must use a minimum of 20 lbs. (approximately two bags) of Kingsford Charcoal throughout the duration of the contest. Complete rules and the registration form will be posted on the KCBS website during the month of February.
The Kingsford Points Chase will kick off in Hammond, LA at the Hammond Blues & BBQ Challenge and will culminate at one of BBQ’s most heralded events, The Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational Barbecue. The 2011 Kingsford Points Chase schedule is below. Kingsford and KCBS look forward to expanding this new competitive BBQ tradition.
