News and updates will be listed on this page whenever they happen. We hope to make this the best event yet!

01/24/2015:So, few updates here... we welcome back Smokopolis BBQ to the Competition.
We are now closed to Judges applications, so if you didn't get an app in before now, sorry. For those that did, we will be sending out invites for Judges in the first week of February.
01/20/2015:Today we welcome back Blazin' Buttz BBQ from Sayville, NY to the competition. We also want to thank Inspire Federal Credit Union for coming on baord as our lastest sponsor!
I'd also like to let everyone know that we will be closing applications for Judges at the end of business on Friday, January 23rd. So if you still would like to be considered for a Judges position, get those applications in ASAP.
Also, a reminder to teams new to the Que For the Troops, we are still accepting your applications, and come April 1st, if any spots remain open in the Competition, we will fill those spots from the waiting list in order your application was received.
Lastly, a reminder once again, we now have Sponsorship Forms available on the right hand side of the home page

01/16/2015:We get to welcome back two teams today: Two and Que and Smokin' Hoggz BBQ. Glad to have them both back.
We are filling up on judges pretty quick. I'm almost where I need to be, so if your sending in an application after this weekend there is a decent shot you will be waitlisted. We are going to keep judges signups open for a little longer, but not past the end of the month. The beginning of Feb. is when we plan to send out Judges invites for the event, or notify individuals they have been waitlisted.
01/13/2015:Today we welcome back Moon River BBQ to the competition, and many thanks to our latest sponsor, Smoken Dudes BBQ. For those looking for a little history, I've added last years competition results to the COMPETITION page.
01/12/2015:Bunch of updates to the site. We now have the 2015 KCBS Rule Book available on the Competition page. We add 2 more teams to our rankes by welcoming back Uncle Pig's Barbecue Pit and Drilling and Grilling. We added some times and structure to the Friday and Saturday pages. Please note, all times are subject to change. Added some more pictures to the Photos and Videos section. If you have attended the event in the past and would like to share your pictures with us please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to post them for all to see. And finally, happy to say our first sponsors for our Que for the Troops fundraiser: MC2 Digital Media and Grand Royal BBQ. We hope to be adding alot more names to that list in the coming months so stay tuned!
