Tickets are now available for purchase for the KCBS annual banquet.  The banquet will be November 14, 2020 at the Prairie Band Casino & Resort in Mayetta, KS (about 90 miles west of Kansas City). 
The banquet will be held in conjunction with the Kansas City Barbeque Society World Invitational, presented by Smithfield; which will bring together championship pitmasters to compete for the title of KCBS World Champion in the Master and Backyard divisions. The KCBS World Invitational will also include the finale of the Turkey Smoke Series turkey contest that KCBS is leading with the National Turkey Federation to showcase the versatility of turkey on the smoker.

During the banquet, we will also honor winners of the following prestigious awards:
