We have relocated the Buckeye State BBQ Championship to downtown West Chester, OH, where dozens of the top BBQ Teams in the nation will return to compete in the Buckeye State BBQ Championship. The event is sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society as a STATE CHAMPIONSHIP and is a qualifying event for the Jack Daniel's World BBQ Championship.

The Kansas City BBQ Society is the largest organization of BBQ enthusiasts in the world. Professional teams travel from all over the U.S. to compete in four categories: Ribs, Chicken, Pork & Brisket.


This year we are adding a People's Choice Award Contest where some teams will prepare BBQ to be judged by members of the public who purchase a bracelet that will entitle them to cast a vote for their favorite BBQ. The public judging for the Peoples Choice Award will take place from 1:00 pm- 3:00 pm Saturday. Tickets for the Peoples Choice Award will be on sale soon.
