Newport Pig Cookin't Contest - Kcbs Great American Bbq Tour
The first stop on the Kansas City Barbeque Society Great American BBQ Tour has been announced and the Newport Pig Cookin't Contest is the first of over two dozen stops throughout the country where cooks state-wide will be competing for cash prizes.
Jim Bristle, President of Newport Pig Cookin't said, â¬ÅKCBS is the leading barbecue organization in the world, and for them to choose Newport Pig Cookin't really puts us on the barbecue world map.
KCBS recently announced the schedule for the 2010 KCBS Great American BBQ Tour.
During the many stops on this country-wide BBQ event, Mike and Chris Peters will be doing presentations where they will be sharing their knowledge and love of their food, as well as providing grilling advice and food samples for attendees.
The presentations will also include a feature where two of the audience will be picked to take part in a Grill Master cook-off, where they will be cooking chicken with a selection of the events sponsors seasonings; including KC Masterpiece or Weber Seasonings and Kingsford Charcoal.
Using the official cooker of the tour, Good-One Smokers/Grills, as well as the tour's official grilling accessory, GrillGrates, the participants are judged by the audience on the KCBS standards of appearance, taste and texture.
Available over the two day event, there will be concession stands, rides for adults and children, arts and crafts, bake sales, funnel cakes, souvenirs as well as a great deal of music to enjoy.
Admission to the Newport Pig Cookin't Contest is free, and plates of barbecue run at $6 a head with serving starting from 11am, and bulk pork, when available, will be sold at a price of $6 per pound, though stocks may be outstripped by demand from attendees.
2010 marks the 32nd annual Newport Pig Cookin't Contest and is scheduled to take place on April 9-10 at the Newport Community Park where over 80 BBQ'ers will be cooking up the best whole pig and competing for cash prizes.
