Deadline for registration is March 14, 2024.

Bringing Barbecue back to the West Bottoms again this year in 2024!

If you are new to BBQ contests, the American Royal Backyard BBQ & Steak Cook-Off is for you.  A Backyard Series contest is an inexpensive and fun way to get started with a barbecue contest. Come on out, join the fun and test your skills!

The Backyard BBQ and Steak Cook-Off are two separate contests and teams are allowed to enter either one or both as long as you meet the KCBS definition of a Backyard Cook Team.

Find the KCBS Backyard Rules and Regulations Here

The Steak Cook-Off is open to ALL teams (Master or Amateur).  Teams do not have to compete in the Backyard Contest to enter the Steak Cook-Off. Steaks will be provided – each team will receive two steaks. Judging will follow the KCBS Guidelines.
