Windy City BBQ Classic – New in 2015!

  • KCBS-sanctioned!
  • Expanded team format!
  • Limited public access!
  • Customized VIP experiences!
  • Guest passes and expanded team-sizes! Frost-free nighttime temps!
  • Enough free power to light up a suburb!


We’ve partnered with the Kansas City BBQ Society to sanction the 2015 event, so we are Chicago’s first and only KCBS contest!

As always, we’re providing parking, beer, entertainment, awards, trophies and an awesome weekend of BBQ on the lakefront. We’ll also have access to abundant electricity, tapping into Solider Field’s main power boxes.

Prizes are at least $12,500 and as a KCBS-sanctioned event, you can qualify for the Jack Daniel’s Invitational and the American Royal! Spots are still open; sign up today!

Sponsor & VIP Experiences

Let our team custom-design a once-in-a lifetime event for your group, where you can get up-close and personal with BBQ teams as they vie for a chance to be crowned Grand Champion. Ask about our VIP packages with private tent, music, beer, cocktails and real BBQ with a view.

Judges & Volunteers

Calling all KCBS Certified BBQ Judges! Sign up today for a chance to be part of the first official group of KCBS Certified BBQ Judges at the Windy City BBQ Classic.

And since it takes a small army of dedicated people to pull off an event of this magnitude, we’d love to have you aboard our Volunteer team if you’re willing to donate some time to a great cause.

Join Us Today & Smoke On!
