Clayton BBQ Cook Off

July 9-10, 2022

Join us for the 11th Annual Clayton BBQ Cook Off, a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event.

This year’s festival will feature a 4-meat competition (chicken, pork ribs, pork shoulder, and brisket) as more than 40 BBQ Masters and backyard chefs face off to take home over $10,000.00 in prize monies.  

The festival takes place on July 9th and 10th, 2022, with Pro Pitmasters and Backyard Chefs competitions, food vendors, local craft beer, live music and more.

Expanding into a 2-day festival will bring more Vendors, more food booths, including KCBS Competitors selling their products to the public, expanded beer selection, live music and more.

Don’t miss this tasty event as historic Clayton is transformed into a BBQ paradise.

Presented by the Clayton Business and Community Association and sanctioned by The Kansas City Barbeque Society.

KCBS Competitors have to enter all 4 meats (chicken, pork ribs, pork shoulder, and brisket). For the first time, KCBS Teams can vend to the public.  Our Backyard Competitors will cook and enter chicken and ribs, only. More details and sign up forms will be available in the coming weeks.

Note: Teams needing power should bring their own generator!
