"PEOPLE'S CHOICE" Contest - WONDERFUL SUCCESS ... 2014 Winners were ... Who Dat Smokin'

New venue this year. The Smokin' In The Square sponsor, Eager Beaver Tree Service, will be providing each Backyard Team with 2 pork butts to prepare for sampling by the public. The Backyard Team with the most donations in their "benefactor jar" will be the winner of the People's Choice event. This event will be on Saturday from 11am to 3pm. There is no requirement for the public to donate, and we suggest that the Backyard Teams prepare additional butts for sampling.

Please go to the KCBS web site for 2013 rules!! (2014 KCBS rules not yet posted.)
