Our fifth year is in the books. With great weather, location and people to work with, we had a SUPER weekend! Jim Mroz, Joyce Santiago, Fred Priano, Linda Foels and the whole Gateway Harbor crew were working better than ever keeping up with the crowd that was estimated to be about 28,000 in attendance. The barbecue vendors were real busy feeding the good folks-we had everyone from little kids to great grandparents eating award winning barbecue from eight great vendors. As we get ready for our 6th year we ask that you mark your calendars for August 09- 11th, 2013 with more great barbecue, music and beverages. Along with several vendors selling pies, corn, BBQ supplies from sauces to grills. We are always looking for teams for the Saturday Open event held this year on August 10, 2013. This year our Open event will be a Kansas City Barbecue Society sanctioned event and point totals will count towards the Empire State BBQ Championship! If baking is more of your forte, we also have an apple pie contest. This year we need your help putting this event in the International BBQ News.
