You showed up and ate!  And apparently liked it.

Once again, the Sam’s Club Kansas City Barbecue Society’s Arkansas State Championship BBQ contest on Friday night (September 20) at the Washington County Fairgrounds BBB Campground was a rousing success.  World Class BBQ, happy crowds, live music in the BBB Saloon, what more could hungry folks want?

For a $6 donation, folks got to not only taste, but cast their vote for their favorite “cue”.   And it was a tough decision; the competitors included some of the best competition road cooks in the nation, all vying for bragging rights in the People’s Choice category.  And then, of course, on Saturday was the KCBS Arkansas State Championship (Think prize money).

Friday Night People’s Choice Winner – Rub n Butts – Matt Stobaugh and Donald Tucker

KCBS Reserve Champion – Robert Waddell

KCBS Grand Champion – Danny Marks
