Smokin' on the SummitLee's Summit, MO

BBQ Contest

1st Place Ribs

This weekend was our hometown contest, Smokin’ on the Summit in downtown Lee’s Summit. This is one of our favorite events of the year because our family and friends are able to come by and experience the world of competition barbecue. Friday night was especially busy for us this year as we were also asked to cater a sponsor party. Good food was enjoyed by all, and we capped off the night with a toast of Cabo Wabo tequila!

Saturday’s contest went off great! Other than a spell of rain overnight, we had a great cook and were extremely happy with our turn-ins. We ended up making two trips to the awards stage for 5th place brisket and 1st place ribs!!!  That added up to 5th place overall out of 63 teams.
