Kanab Western Legends KCBS

Participate in a Kansas City Barbeque Sanctioned Contest at Western Legends!



Western Legends is excited to partner with KCBS for this year’s celebrations.


Western Legend’s BBQ Cook-Off is a fully sanctioned KCBS contest. It is an outgrowth of event planning- barbecue’s proudest distinction: the Kanab community. This BBQ Cook-Off is a family friendly event, a judged cooking contest, and an experience for passionate barbeque enthusiasts of all ages.  Passionate and talented grilling teams will be coming from to Kanab all over the West to compete for $10,000 in prize money! Teams must prepare entries in the following categories: chicken, ribs, pork and brisket. Certified KCBS judges will evaluate barbeque in three different criteria: taste, appearance and texture. In addition to the cash prizes, this is a “Masters Series” is a qualifying event for the participants to progress to the prestigious American Royale and the Jack Daniels World Championships.

In addition to the Masters Series, Western Legends is also putting on a “Peoples Choice” BBQ Competition for both the pros and locals. Western Legends guests and locals can purchase tickets to vote for which grillin tastes bests. There’s a $1,000 purse for the winner, and proceeds from ticket sales will go to a local charity.
