The 2nd Annual Smoke on the Bricks BBQ competition will take place on Friday, May 29th and Saturday, May 30th in picturesque downtown Baldwin City. The first year of this event drew 49 teams and we look to expand on that in year 2. This Kansas City Barbecue Society sanctioned competition is a qualifying event for the American Royal World Series of Barbecue and the Jack Daniels World Championship for 2020. BBQ teams can check in Friday beginning at 9:00 a.m. Friday evening the general public is welcome to come out and hang with their friends and families for the evening from 5:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Live music will be onsite, beer and wine will be for sale and be sure to purchase your BBQ Bucks to sample world class BBQ Friday evening! Love music from the 1980's? 80's cover band The M80's will perform Friday night for your entertainment. Be sure to check back often as we will be adding more activities to the lineup for Friday and Saturday!
BBQ Bucks will once again be on sale beginning Monday, May 18th through Friday, May 29th at the Baldwin City Recreation Commission Office (705 High St.). Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:00 am to 4:00 pm on Friday. Friday beginning at 4:00 p.m. BBQ Bucks will be sold at the Lumberyard Art Center (718 High St.) in downtown Baldwin. Teams will not take cash for BBQ, they will only take BBQ Bucks, so be sure to pick yours up! Teams will sell BBQ between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. BBQ Bucks will be sold until the food runs out.
