KCBS Partner Programs
The BBQ Guru Challenge
The BBQ Guru Challenge will move the program focus from a points chase to awarding more prize money on an event level. The BBQ Guru Challenge will give out additional prize money to teams with the highest and second highest overall number of points out of registered teams who cook with a BBQ Guru Temperature Control System or an Onyx Oven. The BBQ Guru Challenge will be held at 10 KCBS sanctioned events throughout the Great American Cookout schedule. Winners of each event will be featured on KCBS.us and featured on KCBS and BBQ Guru social media sites.
McCormick Grill Mates KCBS Match-Up
McCormick Grill Mates has partnered with the Kansas City Barbeque Society to create the McCormick Grill Mates KCBS Match-Up, challenging the country's top pitmasters to compete in a multi-city competition series and fire up their best beef dish using Montreal Steak Seasoning.
Four local KCBS competition events will host a McCormick Grill Mates KCBS Match-Up, giving teams the chance to earn up to $900, per event, in bonus cash money. Then, in true points-chase fashion, the series top overall finishers will cash in on even more money at the end of the season. Ready to give your beef a run for the money?
